What is Salary and HRM?

Paying salary on time, registering employee holidays; seem to be simple tasks that can be executed easily. Nevertheless it takes more to run a professional HR department. That is why Human Resource Management systems or employee information systems were invented; systems that can store all relevant personnel data. Often salary registration and HRM are integrated, but it doesn’t have to be.

HRM software

An HRM or HR system keeps track of personal data like salary calculations, assessment data, vacancy management, authorization data, signing powers, education data, career planning, digital passport photo, job title and department.

Now, with the shortage in the employment market, HR becomes a more important instrument to monitor employees effectively. It gives the information to stimulate employees and connect them to the organization.
