A human resource information system, or HRIS for short, is a computer database that is used to compile, store, organize, and retrieve employee or human resource related data. These programs are employed by the vast majority of major companies, and they provide the HR department with easy access to employee-provided information. This information is used for professional purposes and is usually updated on a periodic basis. The database typically contains information regarding employees’ professional background, contact information, previous company infractions or violations, and any other information that a company deems necessary in order to maintain a productive, safe, and professional work environment. Information in the database is usually confidential to the majority of employees, with the exception of human resource workers and supervisory workers.
