A HRMS (Human Resource Management System) is a combination of systems and processes that connect human resource management and information technology through HR software. A HRMS may help to revolutionize a workplace. The automation of repetitive and time consuming tasks associated with human resources management frees up some of the companies most valuable employees and allows the focus to shift to culture, retention, and other highly impactful areas. The term HRMS is sometimes used synonymously with HRIS (Human Resource Information System), but an HRIS is really a type of HRMS. Functionally, however, there is no real difference in the type of systems offered going by one title or the other. At one time, a HRMS was a more complete automated solution to human resources management than software labeled as HRIS or even HCM, but rebranding by many companies has worked to make the different software titles generally indistinguishable.

Functions of HRMS Systems

The function of the human resources department involves tracking employee histories, skills, abilities, salaries, and accomplishments. Replacing certain processes with various levels of HRMS systems can distribute information management responsibilities so that the bulk of information gathering is not delegated strictly to HR. By allowing employees to update personal information and perform other tasks, information is kept more accurate and HR professionals are not bogged down. Each module performs a separate function within the HRMS that helps with information gathering or tracking. HRMS modules can assist with:

  • Managing payroll
  • Recruitment and on boarding
  • Gathering, storing, and accessing employee information
  • Keeping attendance records and tracking absenteeism
  • Performance evaluation
  • Benefits administration
  • Learning management
  • Employee self-service
  • Employee scheduling
  • Analytics and informed decision making
