What is HRIS (human resources information system)?

HRIS stands for human resources information system. It’s a computer application that handles HR processing, data storage and administration.

An HRIS can help HR teams work more productively, cutting down on admin by automating processes and reducing human error. It can also speed up response to employees, like holiday requests or benefits entitlement. Today’s sophisticated systems play a more strategic role, providing vital data analytics for People planning and business decision-making. They free up HR teams from routine admin, so they can spend more time on the creative side of HR: this could mean designing employee engagement strategy, planning and delivering training or improving talent acquisition.
