HRIS Professional

March 04, 2008

Another area of HR without enough talent to meet demand is Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS).

Technology has become a key part of HR as companies look at ways to function more efficiently. HRIS products help them manage one of their most important assets – their personnel.

As HRIS systems have become more sophisticated, the demand for experienced professionals in this area has risen. HRIS professionals are often involved in product selection, systems customization, implementation and ongoing administration. If you are extremely detail-oriented and enjoy working with computers, this might be the job for you. The long-term prospects are quite rosy in spite of the economy’s ups and downs.
