Core HR software is a type of software used by companies to manage their core HR information. It’s basically an employee record management system or master record that allows organizations to manage key administrative human resource tasks. Although the functions of specific HR software products vary depending on the vendor, all core HR software products store information about a company’s employees in one central database.
Companies use core HR systems to store personal details such as employee names, addresses, national ID numbers, date of birth, Social Security numbers, job titles, job descriptions, salary, payroll information, vacation days, sick days, promotions, pay rises, employment history, work hours, work permits, benefits information, employment eligibility forms, and qualifications. It’s all about combining HR systems with information technology to manage human resources.
Human Capital Management Solution, Human Resources Management System (HRMS), or Human Resources Information System (HRIS), is the crossing of HR systems and processes with information technology.
