Human resource information systems (HRIS) has become a crucial area of attention for management professionals. A major challenge in teaching the course is its cross-disciplinary nature. HR students find it difficult to grasp the IT//IS side of the subject and vice versa. To overcome the technical nature of most of the books in the market Human Resource Information Systems has a balanced approach in dealing with HR and IT//IS issues by drawing from experts in both areas. Rather than depending on expensive commercial software products to demonstrate the applications of HRIS, this book uses case studies at the end of most chapters to facilitate discussions and link them to managerial and technical problems in HRIS.
