Basic Features of HRIS

Basic Features of HRIS
In lieu of standardized paperwork, HRIS allows employees to fill out forms online,
make changes based on life events, and get information on their benefits at any time.
Rather than “pulling an employee’s file,” HR personnel can refer any information
about an employee through the system, including personal information, benefits,
number of dependents, emergency contacts, and job history.
HRIS includes both standardized and customized reports. Standard reports feature
templates for various administrative purposes including employee reviews, record
keeping, workers’ compensation, employment history, and absence tracking.
Customized reports are created that incorporate categories and information unique to
business. Most HRIS applications have a comprehensive tracking system. HRIS
tracking capabilities can maintain grievances filed by or against the employee
stemming from discipline, disputes, and complaints.
Quick reference guides can be available relating to all areas of the Human Resources
Information System, including staff benefits, benefit contribution rates, calendars,
personnel change reason codes, and the payroll process flowchart. Detailed
instructions regarding establishing and changing employee benefit and deduction
information, including retirement, pension, health care, flexible spending accounts
and employee selected deductions. Documentation on the human resource accounting
structure can be possible; including staff benefit calculations and charges, review and
correction of human resource accounts. Documentation is helpful for payroll issues,
including time reporting requirements, check and auto deposit distribution, taxable
benefits, terminations, review and correction of employee pay and leave, and tax
forms. Instructions and forms for employees to establish or change their employee
information related to the Human Resources system, including name, address,
retirement, pension, and health care.
