What are the most common HR information systems?

All businesses – from small to medium to long conglomerates – need a proper HRIS to manage employees. From salary, to benefits, to performance reviews and more – an HR software system is a one-stop-shop for all HR business needs. When going through the system selection process, it can be difficult to even know where to start.

The most common HR information systems:


The Workday HR system has grown in popularity over the past few years, and it is not surprising. Here are a few reasons why Workday has been adopted by some of the biggest companies globally, and is worth a look for your next HRIS changeover. Workday works like your favorite consumer website. It offers a simple user experience whether you’re on a desktop, tablet, or a mobile device. Moving to a new release of business software can be a daunting and risky initiative. Work disruption, downtime, cost, and difficult customizations top the list of concerns when upgrading. With Workday, you’re always on the most recent version. As new versions roll out, your data automatically converts to the latest release. And all new capabilities come turned off, so you can adopt them on your own timeline. Lastly, Workday’s unified platform approach eliminates the need for separate application and data integration infrastructure between applications.
