What is an HRIS?

HRIS stands for Human Resources Information System. It can also be used interchangeably with HRMS, which stands Human Resources Management System and HR software. An HRIS is a software solution able to optimise human resources, internal processes, and company policies effectively.

An HRIS handles all the tasks that an HR department normally manages including staff payroll, recruiting and professional training, talent management and succession planning. Besides supporting managers with human resources tasks, an HRIS offers important functions that help HR managers to save time, such as absence management software and attendance records. This is why more and more companies are switching spreadsheets for HRIS online.
