Sachin Vishwasrao Ayarekar, Ramchandra Mahadik


Human Resource Information System is software developed for collecting, storing, classifying, presenting, processing and retrieving various information  necessary for effective management of human resources in an organization. HRIS help streamline administrative procedures, manage employee benefits, reduce the need for paperwork and manual records, and keep track of all personal, job-related employee data etc. This research paper focuses more on assessing the impact of size of organization on usage of HRIS. Researchers have reviewed research papers and articles for this research work. Researchers have taken small, medium and large organization for this study. Questionnaire was distributed amongst the respondents and data was collected and analyzed. Chi-square test was used to test the hypothesis. The conclusion of this research is that there is no relationship between size of the organization and usage of HRIS. Even some small size organizations are utilizing all functions of HRIS software while some medium and large size organizations are using partial part of HRIS software.


Size of the organization, Human Resource Information System, Type of organization, employee satisfaction and sustainable development.
