Introduction to Human Resource Information Systems

HRS 2280

With the emergence of the Enterprise Resource Planning System (ERPS) that integrates various business modules within the company's information database, Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS) has become a crucial focus for Human Resource professionals. Students will analyze the overall framework for implementing business records and information management systems. Students examine how the utilization of HR technology can optimize the HR function, talent management, performance management, compensation, and workforce planning. Students explore the use of Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS) in the administration and management of human resources, how to assess needs, plan, implement and maintain an HRIS.

The aim of this course is to provide students with the foundational skills required for success in this information age using a fully integrated business application, while maintaining the integrity of a system being an integral part of a company wide fundamental business process. The implementation of such an application will impact the Human Resources professional with the ability to execute practical organizational decision-making, that will have a direct impact on the Human Capital Management (HCM) for an organization.
