A practical human resource information system (HRIS) guide with real-world problems and problem-solving perspectives.

This cross-disciplinary textbook provides a thorough introduction to the field of HRIS, a combination of two major management fields—human resources and information systems— that impact the competitive advantage of companies. Unlike other HRIS textbooks that overwhelm students with technical information and jargon, this revised 3rd edition offers a balanced approach in dealing with HR and IT/IS issues by drawing from experts in both areas.It contains dedicated chapters on the Systems Development Life Cycle and the needs analysis of HRIS to encourage critical thinking and assessment. The new chapter on HRIS Privacy and Security aims to help students learn more about the importance of securing an employee's privacy.

Key Features:

• Organized into four main parts with an emphasis on students learning all of the aspects of developing, implementing, and using HRIS

• Offers editorial introductions to each section that provides a helpful framework, introduce the links between chapters, and highlight the key learning objectives for each chapter

• Links HR concepts to technology and demonstrates how HR professionals can apply these practices to their day-to-day functions

• Includes an organizational system template, offering a holistic picture of different HRIS to show how these systems, used in conjunction, can contribute to a firm's success
