With the emergence of the Enterprise Resource Planning System that seamlessly integrates various business modules within the information architecture of any business enterprise, Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS) has become a crucial focus for management professionals. This cross-disciplinary book provides a thorough introduction to the field of HRIS, which combines two major management fields that impact the competitive advantage of companies - human resources and information systems. Unlike other HRIS textbooks that flood students with technical info and jargon, Human Resource Information Systems: Basics, Applications, and Future Directions offers a balanced approach in dealing with HR and IT/IS issues by drawing from experts in both areas. Editorial introductions to each section provide the reader with a helpful framework, introducing the links between chapters and highlighting the key learning objectives for each chapter.
