Human Resource Management and Management Information Systems

How are HR executives making use of MIS in their jobs... What are the main kind of systems they use?

HR and MIS

MIS is used in measuring performance, giving incentives and target setting. All you have to do is agree on specific key result areas and targets on specific time periods. This way we can be objective in giving incentives, promotions and bonuses.

HR Information Systems

HR systems can encompass a wide variety of systems from payroll and basic HR (i.e., position management, organization charts and toolkits) to complex talent management and staffing systems.
You may also have online employee records and attendance management, safety and occupational management, disability and return to work systems, as well as training and employee development systems.
HR executives can obtain reports from the various systems, and use HR metrics to measure performance and outcomes to determine if they are meeting their HR goals. The automation of transactions also allows HR organizations to adopt a more strategic business focus, as opposed to tracking data and responding to issues after the fact.
With proper management information systems, the HR organization reduces data errors and minimizes redundant data, by using databases and data warehouses.
PeopleSoft, SAP (HR), and other systems are now trying to create useful online electronic tools.
