Two software systems which are absolute complements of each other are the human resource management software or HRMS and the placement management software. While the HRMS helps to automate the system thereby enabling a connection between IT or information technology and management of human resource, the software for placement management worked to ensure better engagement between the employees thereby leading to their better evaluation. In fact the installation of the HRMS or its integration into the human resource software works as an aid to placement management.
In fact the integration of the HRMS into the HR software tends to give it a modern edge. It becomes the trademark of every company in the modern era since irrespective of the size, every company and organisation benefits from the integration of the two. An automated system put in place to perform HR tasks also ensures correct evaluation of an employee’s progress and performance and also reduces chances of any tampering with the data.
All subsidiary departments of the HR departments benefits from the implementation of this software. Since the work of the HR department involves dealing with employee history, their abilities, skills and qualifications, salaries and incentives, achievements etc., automation of processes using the HRMS actually enables seamless distribution of the management responsibilities. Thus even employees are able to update their personal information and also do other necessary tasks with their profile thereby leaving the HR professionals free to deal with other more important work.
Some of the functions performed by the individual modules present within the HRMS are:
- Payroll management,
- Recruitment and seamless on boarding,
- Gathering necessary employee information and storing them in an organised manner for easy access,
- Keeping an updated attendance record with a special eye on absenteeism,
- Evaluation of performance,
- Benefiting the output of the overall administration by ensuring accuracy of data,
- Management learning,
- Employee scheduling and self-servicing,
- Enabling statistical analytics so that the management is able to make informed decisions.
Due to the sensitive and proprietary nature of the data dealt with by the HRMS, care should be taken to ensure that the method chosen for the transmission of the same is absolutely secure. Thus an encrypted form of data transmission is also absolutely mandatory when working with HRMS.
