Why HRM?

Human resources management (HRM) solutions encompass applications for handling personnel-related tasks for corporate managers and individuals and provide the tools and technologies needed to enhance all facets of human resources (HR) administration. While many organizations perform their own HR-related activities, many are now outsourcing some of these administrative tasks (e.g., payroll, recruitment, etc.). 

HRM solutions generally support key functionalities including personnel management, benefit management, payroll management, training, workforce management and planning, and health and safety administration. These systems support HR personnel by automating a large percentage of the work.
