What is a
Human Resource Information System (HRIS?)

Think of it like your HR one-stop shop.

Employment Hero HR is a human resource information system, but it’s much easier to say HRIS, so let’s go with that. A HRIS is an all-in-one HR software. Our HRIS, Employment Hero, lets you manage onboarding, compliance, rostering, timesheets, performance reviews and a heap of other traditionally  time-consuming aspects of employment. We make it easy to do all of this from wherever you are. Log in on your work computer or into our mobile app, it’s up to you.

Still Scrolling?

We’re glad you’re still here, honestly, thanks for getting this far. If you’re still unconvinced, we’ve written a whole blog about HRIS and what it is. We’ve included that blog right here, on this page. That way, you don’t have to go anywhere!

Why Should You Use a HRIS?

These days, managing HR in a growing business is a constant task. You’re overloaded with work and you never seem to get to the bottom of it all. It’s not unusual to rush from meeting to meeting, extinguishing fire after fire. You’re always checking your e-mail and making countless phone calls. 

But there’s a big difference between being productive and just being busy. And if you’re always busy, being busy on admin-based HR tasks with no time for strategic HR thinking, that probably means you need a HRIS.

4 Signs You REALLY Need a HRIS

1. Onboarding is all paperwork

The onboarding of new employees is a crucial time, you want to give your new hires a thorough understanding of your company’s history, culture, and mission. How well they understand the business and fit into the bigger picture and can contribute to the greater success of the company.

But, in too many workplaces, onboarding is all about paperwork. And much of a new employee’s first day, is all about completing one document after another. This includes:

  • Signing a letter of engagement;
  • Acknowledging your code of conduct;
  • Filling out the tax declaration form;
  • Completing their superannuation choice form; and,
  • Giving us their bank account details.

For new starters, it’s dull, and it’s tedious, and for some, it’s a real let down. But it doesn’t have to be this way when you enable new hires to complete onboarding essentials online, allowing them to fill out and sign all of their onboarding paperwork well in advance of their start date.

2. The data you need is always hard to find

If you’re still filing everything away in paper files in a bank of filing cabinets, it’s not only inefficient, but you’re probably putting the business at risk. Paper-based filing systems are only as secure as the people who have access to the office where they are located.

Even if you’re the holder of the key, when bulky filing cabinets start to fill up with overflowing manila folders, it becomes difficult to keep the information organised. If you face an underpayment claim or are undergoing an audit by a Fair Work inspector,  think of the time it takes to hunt down those important documents. It can be seriously stressful, and seriously time-consuming. And with no audit trail, who can say that it hasn’t been altered?

3. Human errors keep tripping you up

Sometimes, the sheer volume of paperwork and duplication from manual processes can be simply overwhelming and keeping you away from doing more strategic work. Spreadsheets are probably a large part of why you’re always busy doing busy things. They are also notoriously prone to human error.

With manual data entry, any kind of formula mistakes can seriously mess with everything from managing holiday allowances to your payroll calculations. And it can take ages to unravel it all when something goes awry.

4. You’re busy “being busy”, updating HR files

Employee self-service is all about helping employees and managers build a more self-sufficient work environment. Having HR self-service functionality is a must as it allows your colleagues to perform routine HR tasks themselves, rather than relying on you to do it for them. This includes updating their personal details, as well as acting as viewing and acknowledging workplace policies and other HR documents.

By reducing your employees’ reliance on you to perform day-to-day support tasks, you cut costs and response times while improving efficiency, productivity and compliance.
