This report summarises the findings of a survey about the use of Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS) associated with people management activities in Ireland. A total of 520 responses were received. - The study was conducted by the Centre for Innovation and Structural Change at the National University of Ireland, Galway. - The survey shows that larger and foreign-owned organisations are more likely to utilise HRIS than Irish-owned or smaller firms. - The most commonly used HRIS modules are employee information, training and development, and payroll and pensions. - The decision to use HRIS is taken mainly made at a corporate rather than enterprise level. In over one-quarter of organisations, HR practitioners are responsible for the purchase and use of HRIS. The main users of HRIS are HR practitioners - The most common systems used are those purchased directly ¿off-the-shelf, with very few organisations having their own bespoke system. - Just over a third of organisations that use HRIS integrate their HR-related technologies with other enterprise systems. The most typical human resource technical interface is with finance and payroll. - Overall, there is a lack of awareness among HR practitioners about the range of usages and system capabilities from HRIS. In over 90% of respondent organisations HRIS are under-utilised
