No one person possesses all the knowledge and information in the world as he is not God. But to remedy this, people have invented writing and with writing, sprung books. Thus, from the time that writing was invented to the present, people have relied on entering information on paper, records and books so that forgetting a piece of data would never happen.
It was indeed an effective way of keeping records and history of a certain subject, but paper and books have certain weaknesses such as fire, water, and time. Thus, keeping track of written data have also proven to be risky. Luckily, the computer was invented, and from there on numerous data has been entered into the computer and now, even the internet, assuring therefore that the information and data that was entered would be safe and would stand a fighting chance of surviving for eternity.
Companies have also adapted this method in keeping records of their accounts and important files. And recently, companies have also turned to this method to keep not only the records of their accounts and important files but also have used it to keep track of the records of their employees through specialized software called the HRMS or the Human Resource Information System.
The HRMS is a software that was created to keep assist the HR practitioners in keeping and filing records of a companies employees. The usual information that may be seen in the HRMS in connection with the employees aside from their names are: the personal information, such as birth dates, height, weight, address, contact details; the educational background; the past work experiences; and at times, the scores on assessments and tests that were conducted before the employees.
The Human Resource Information System was made to lessen the work load of the HR practitioners thus giving them more opportunities to make use of their time in other issues of the company. Aside from that, the Human Resource Information System, also saves time in searching and locating from the numerous files a certain file about a person or employee and also saves spaces by eliminating the need for a filing cabinet to keep the records of the employees. It also prevents the files from being destroyed by way of fire, water or pests eating the files because all the information are now stored in a safe place in numerous hard drives that are connected to a mainframe or master computer.
