What role does an ERP have in HR?
Today all the professionals of a company talk about the importance of using an ERP, in any department or area of ​​the company itself.
Most workers, initially, when they hear the word ERP are unaware of its meaning and purpose.

They are information management systems that help many of the business practices, along with the operational and productive aspects of a company, to be automated. It is a software architecture that makes it easier for companies to interrelate all the information between all the functions of a company.

Currently an ERP is a fundamental presence for a company to create and manage a business strategy , having as objectives access to information, optimize business processes, eliminate unnecessary data and operations, and have the possibility of sharing information between the components of the organization.

Companies that have opted to invest in these types of solutions, appreciate a very important improvement in the effectiveness of their employees.

It is not always positive due to the fact that it is difficult to change the way of working. Initially it gives the feeling of more work, recoil and control; If one is involved in the project, in the medium term, agility in internal and external processes is achieved, together with the achievement of the set objectives.
The use of ERP allows a competitive leap to differentiate itself from the rest, and innovate in processes.
For a good management of HR, it is necessary to implement an ERP in accordance with the management of personnel, training, selection, compensation and benefits, human talent, the employee portal, expatriates (7P), among other main functions of HR.
In short, to manage the HR of a large company, do we need an ERP adjusted to the needs to promote people management?
