Human Resources Information Systems (HRIS)


•You are a business analyst with the Human Resources Information Systems (HRIS) team for a medium national company in the manufacturing industry.•The current HRIS is 10 years old. A lot has changed in HRIS technology since then.


With this version, there is a huge amount of manual entry, delaying the approval workflows and availability of accurate information. In fact, it requires a team of 8 people to manage all the processes and data. Your manager has recently talked about the need to upgrade to the 2020 version of the HRIS for better efficiency, but the budget is tight and the conversion could be costly.•You’ve read that customers who converted to the 2020 version of the HRIS experience better employee compliance with the documentation and custom requirements. The workflows are automated and easy to monitor. Also, the number of people to manage the processes and data is much less.•In the fall, there is a 3-day HR technology conference in Las Vegas, NV. Speakers include your competitors in the manufacturing industry. Expected attendees include similar-sized companies who are also using the same outdated version of HRIS. The cost to attend is $1000 in registration fees and another $1000 in travel and expenses. You believe attending the conference could be useful to gather information from attendees and listen to speakers about how to convert to the 2020 HRIS without too much time or cost.
