HRIS benefits

An HRIS enables the HR department to spend less time on clerical tasks, helps ensure the accuracy of employee data and can enable employees to take a greater role in the management of their information.

Having a centralized repository for employee data removes the need to store paper files, which can be easily damaged, and the need to search through large paper-based employee files to find information. Depending on the type of HRIS software, it should generate various reports, provide ad hoc reporting capabilities and may offer analytics on important metrics such as headcount and turnover. Modern HRIS software also offers visualization capabilities for employee data, such as automatically rendered organizational charts or nine-box grids.

When an HRIS has employee or manager self-service, the process for making employee master data or organizational changes becomes more efficient and uses less time than with paper-based requests. Approval workflows enable changes to be approved or rejected, with the necessary individuals automatically notified. An HRIS might also offer mobile capabilities that extend self-service and provide additional flexibility for remote workers.
