Human Resource Information System (HRIS)

HRIS stands for Human Resource Information System.  A good HRIS program will allow you to store all information about each employee, and to retrieve and manipulate the information to meet your needs.   A cost-effective, but time-consuming, way to do this is through a data base program that exports data to a spreadsheet.  To ensure compliance with privacy legislation, any such system should be maintained on a secure computer or server.

Commercially-available HRIS programs have reporting functions built in.  Users of ADP or Ceridian payroll processing services might consider their HR programs.  As a business grows, some of the other available services may also be of interest (e.g. performance management, succession management).

Providers of integrated ERP (enterprise resource planning) systems, like SAP, and Oracle, also include an HRIS component that integrates with other platforms to support the business.
