The paper “ Human Resources Information Systems in Qantas Airways” is a fascinating variant of the case study on human resources. Qantas Airways is the Australian flag career for passenger transportation. The company has the largest market share and has the largest resources in terms of fleet size. The company is undergoing restructuring and that includes an overhaul of its assets in favor of newer assets. The new assets, most new assets focusing on the acquisition of newer aircraft require a large number of employees who have modern technological skills in various sections of the company’ s flight operating business.
The need for a high number of new employees is proofing a challenge to the HR department of the company that is under the instruction of the management to spend restricted resources in hiring and training new employees. With this need, the HR department has no option except employing the modern Human Resources Information Systems platform to manage the new traffic and management employees who are required in the company (Coronel & Morris, 2016). The needs of the company and the HR department has made it inevitable to develop a custom HRIS that will solve the problems the company is currently facing while enhancing a high level of efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
The aim of this paper is to develop an HRIS database that will be used to acquire, train, and manage new employees while keeping the costs of employee acquisition and training low. This paper will also focus on developing a recommendation of the best practices that Qantas should use in developing and implementing the new system. What characteristics should a credible HR Database for the high-growth industry have? The proposed HRIS will have dedicated online portal characteristics that will ease the process of employee acquisition recruitment and management.
The dedicated portal should provide users and employers with information about each other without physical contact. The HRIS should have the capability of electronic recruitment that will solve the long, laborious, and costly process of acquiring new employees. A dedicated portal or HR database will provide the solution for the employer and the potential employee by enabling them to reach and match the requirements using advanced instant and custom automatic search.
