“Is technology really that important to my business’s success?”

“We’ve always done things manually on paper and have never had any huge problems.”

“Why can’t we just keep doing things the way we’ve been doing them for the past 20 years?”

“It seems like a lot of work just to get everything in ‘the cloud.’ What even is ‘the cloud?’”

Do you find yourself asking similar questions every time you start reading an article on the newest piece of technology? As more and more “tech-talented” workers enter the job market, the speed at which technology is developed will only continue to increase.

The most sought after employees today have been around technology since a very young age, and now they are your prospects, and it is crucial that you tailor your processes to them. Revamping your hiring and onboarding processes to fit tech-savvy employees is a great first step in attracting top talent. How can you stand out from your competition to attract top talent to your workforce? Where would you even start?

What is a Human Resources Information System (HRIS)?

An HRIS system is a software solution for any size business that handles everything in an employee’s lifecycle from hiring to firing, such as:


How do you go about attracting the most talented employees in your industry? A broad reach is crucial when attracting new talent to your company. A Human Resource Information System can help you get in front of the highest number of most qualified candidates.


How can you enhance the employee onboarding experience to get your new hires up to date on company information as quickly as possible? The “ramp-up” stage for employees is a very important step in the lifecycle of any employee, as it sets the ground rules and expectations from the very beginning. Give yourself every opportunity to keep your most talented employees by standardizing your onboarding process with an HRIS system.

Applicant Tracking

Applicant tracking through workflows is an easy way to keep things moving along through the hiring process.

Online Benefits Enrollment

Managing benefits enrollment in a Human Resource Information System is a breeze, especially when everything is in one place! By giving employees access to their most up to date information, you empower them to make necessary changes when needed in the shortest amount of time possible.

Performance Reviews and Talent Management

The yearly performance review is a thing of the past. These days employees expect feedback much more often, so make it easier on yourself by automating some of the processes usinga Human Resource Information System.

Incident Tracking

Accidents and incidents are a part of life. The sooner they are addressed, the sooner they can be worked through. An HRIS system can help you get over those “bumps in the road” more easily by providing workflows and tracking any necessary information, all in one place.

Training and Certifications Management

Continual improvement and professional development of your employees is crucial to their overall success and happiness in your organization. A Human Resource Information System can help track, automate, and simplify your company’s performance review and talent management processes.

Asset Management

Are you getting the most out of your employees and other assets? Asset management is a great way to improve efficiency and effectiveness within your organization.

Consolidated Reporting

It’s hard to manage compliance and reporting activities if you are tracking through multiple systems, especially when they don’t integrate easily. An HRIS system gives you everything you need for powerful reporting and statistics.

With an HRIS system, you or your HR manager can track all aspects of your company’s workforce in one place. This indispensable automation software saves time, money, and headaches!

You may have noticed several names for an HRIS:

  • Human Resources Information System (HRIS)
  • Human Capital Management System (HCM)
  • Human Resource Management System (HRMS)

If you’ve been wondering whether or not an HRIS is the next step for your business, join us on our HRIS webinar on January 12th at 2 pm EST and be sure to come with questions!
