Human Resource Information Systems for SME's


Today, we're delving into Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS) and how they can help transform HR operations for SMEs.

What are HRIS?

HRIS are software solutions crafted to streamline and automate HR tasks and processes. Fundamentally, they act as a centralised database for all employee-related information and HR-related activities, aimed at simplifying your day-to-day people management.

How do they work?

There are a multitude of different software solutions on the market but primarily they offer the following functions:

Centralised Employee Data Securely store all your employee data in one location.

Time and Attendance management Monitor attendance, holiday, and sickness

Reporting and Analytics Real time reports at the click of a button.

Employee Self-service Employees can access their own information, submit leave requests, and update their profiles.

Streamlined Recruitment A cental portal to track job postings, CV’s and candidates.

The Benefits of using a HRIS

Implementing an HRIS solution offers a ton of benefits for SMEs including:

Time Saving Automate repetitive tasks and streamline processes, freeing up valuable time for SME’s to focus on what they do best.

Improved Efficiency and Accuracy Say goodbye to lost holiday forms and minimise the risk of inaccuracies by maintaining a single source of information for all employee data, ensuring data integrity and reliability.

Enhanced Decision-Making Access real-time analytics and reporting tools to make data-driven decisions regarding recruitment, performance management, training, and more.

Scalability As your business grows, so do your HR needs. A decent HRIS is scalable and can adapt to accommodate the evolving requirements of your business, whether it's managing a small team or a growing workforce.

How to choose a solution for your small business

If you google HRIS or HRMS, you’ll find a myriad of companies offering you solutions for HR software, but we know SME’s needs are unique.  You’ll want to find something that is easy to set up, easy to use, that’s flexible, scalable and most importantly cost effective.

Here at The Little HR department, we’ve teamed with the lovely people at Breathe HR who offer a comprehensive HRIS that we can personally vouch for.  Named as G2’s ‘most implementable HMRS’ and featuring in the ‘Top 25 HR Products of 2024’, it’s an ideal solution for small to medium sized businesses. We’ve tried and tested this software and have rolled it out to many of our own clients who are utilising it on a daily basis, one even called it ‘life changing’.
