It is vital that the human resource function in organisations is supported by information systems to be able to deliver services and improve operations. Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS) provide a means of acquiring, storing, analysing and distributing information to various stakeholders. HRIS enable improvement in traditional processes and enhance strategic decision making. This paper bases its discussion on the role of HRIS in the human resource function. The paper explores the usage of HRIS in an educational organisation. Process descriptions in the human resource function indicate how HRIS supports the organisation’s processes with relevant anecdotes under each key process. The findings of the paper will encourage other similar organisations to adopt HRIS as its usage becomes more widespread.
