Paper-based management of employee records from recruitment to retirement may be a thing of the past as the Civil Service Commission (CSC) is set to pilot-run the Human Resource Information System (HRIS).

CSC Chairperson Alicia dela Rosa-Bala, Philippines-Australia Human Resource and Organisational Development Facility Director Milalin S. Javellana and Agusan del Sur Governor Adolph Edward G. Plaza will sign on August 08 a Memorandum of Agreement for the adoption of the HRIS in the CSC.

The HRIS is a system designed to support human resource management (HRM) functions. It is a software or online solution for managing data entry, data tracking, and data information needs. Its goal is to merge the different human resource processes to increase efficiency in recruitment, placement and selection, performance management, and rewards and recognition.

The HRIS intends to put up a Biometric Information System which establishes records of employee work hours and prevents punching in for someone out of work. Its Attendance Monitoring System determines whether an employee was actually present in the workplace at any given time.

The HRIS also has a 201 File Manager, Appointment Information System and Payroll Management System to improve efficiency and minimize errors common with manual data entry. Through its online file management system, information can be generated on a particular person, payroll information can be streamlined, and data can be aggregated for specific purposes such create a report about the office’s demographics.

CSC hopes to integrate learning and development to improve competency assessment and career planning, mentoring and coaching at all levels.
