Human resources management system (HRMS)

What is an HRM system?

HRMS, or Human Resources Management System, is an example of software for HR professionals, a system that combines various functions in one platform for talent management and development at a company including recruiting management, analytics, etc.

HRM systems are a modern solution for companies that value the time and resources of their employees. Almost any HRMS can be successfully utilized by your employees, uniting them in one place where people can communicate with each other, clarify any matters related to work, make requests, and find information, documents, references, templates, etc.

What functions are included in an HRM system?

The average HRMS has all the necessary tools required for team management, namely:

  • Human Resources Management. This includes a database of employees to quickly view their profile, basic communication in the form of announcements and news, a calendar with important team events, and the ability to leave requests - such as popular absence requests to save HR professionals time.
  • Recruiting management. The recruiting process includes several sub-processes, from analyzing job openings to hiring and onboarding new professionals. An HRMS makes it possible to relieve workload by taking over all the red tape of scheduling interviews, sending out emails, sending out job postings, and collecting feedback. This also includes job funnels that recruiters can simply navigate, and more.
  • Onboarding and Offboarding. These processes play key roles in building an employer's brand. Employees who come to a new job expect the company to get them up to speed quickly and efficiently. Similarly, when leaving - the company should make an effort to part ways with the employee on a positive note. With an HRMS, both processes can be automated and conducted efficiently to the benefit of both parties.
  • Employee Assessment. With assessments, the company can see how employees are performing and whether intervention is needed if any of them are not showing their potential to their fullest. An HRMS also offers assessments using performance review methodology.
  • Feedback and engagement/loyalty assessment. Feedback from employees can be automated through both surveys and 1-on-1 face-to-face meetings. Today's HRMSs offer surveys to identify eNPS and other engagement markers.
  • Analytics and reporting. The more indicators HRMS can automate and calculate independently, the better for the HR-specialist.
  • Integration with popular services. HRMSs can integrate with messengers, task management programs, Google and Microsoft products, and job sites for fast data exchange and communication.
