Core HR Management Software are tools used to automate the Human Resources process of a company. These software applications computerize and integrate several human resource processes like recruitment, training, payroll, administration of benefits, performance appraisal and analysis, etc., into one robust package. 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.

Core HR (core human resources) is an umbrella term that means the basic functions of an HR department; the basic data captured about employees; and the software used to manage basic HR processes. Core HR is typically used in three distinct ways:

  • to refer to the basic functions of an HR department;
  • to mean the basic data captured about employees; and
  • as shorthand for the core HR software needed to enable the first two.

Core HR information

In the HR data sense, core HR means the personnel information required to legally employ and administer to employees. This includes employee addresses, birth dates, and U.S. Social Security numbers or national identification numbers; employment eligibility forms; salary and payroll information; compliance with organizational or government rules; work hours and absence tracking; and benefits information.

Core HR information also includes information such as job descriptions and titles and organizational structures.
