With the emergence of the Enterprise Resource Planning System that seamlessly integrates various business modules within the information architecture of any business enterprise, Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS) has become a crucial focus for management professionals. This cross-disciplinary book provides a thorough introduction to the field of HRIS, which combines two major management fields that impact the competitive advantage of companies-human resources and information systems.

Unlike other HRIS textbooks that flood students with technical info and jargon, Human Resource Information Systems: Basics, Applications, and Future Directions offers a balanced approach in dealing with HR and IT/IS issues by drawing from experts in both areas. Editorial introductions to each section provide the reader with a helpful framework, introducing the links between chapters and highlighting the key learning objectives for each chapter.

Review quote

"I really like the practicality of the text and how it talks about real world problems and solutions." -- Frank Mueller "The chapter on international human resource management is excellent. It is one of the best I have ever read." -- Jan Rauk "The organization of each chapter is intuitive and comprehensive. I especially liked and appreciated the "Editors note" at the beginning of each chapter.. as if they were in front of me explaining why the chapter is important." -- Marc Miller "Generally, the book seems to be cover all expected points relevant to HRIS, it provides nice overview of HR history and various HR activities. At the same time, it branches away from traditional HRM approach by introducing decision science knowledge. I like that each chapter has similar structure and include practical case." -- Gery Markova
