This, after PIA Director-General Harold E. Clavite appproved the contract between PIA and Asiagate Networks, Inc. for the provision of a software that will integrate systems and processes to ensure easy management of human resources, business process and data of PIA.
“We want a very efficient HR system which is key to operationalize an excellent business operations system. This is part of upgrading plans of our systems and processes that PIA management has committed to pursue," Clavite said during the kick-off meeting with Asiagate on Tuesday to discuss the requirements which launched the first phase of the project.
Asiagate Project Manager Amor Ebue discussed HRMIS processes as well the specific implementation time frame.
Ebue explained, the web-based HRMIS would enable PIA to generate reports on personnel information, trainings, leave status and personnel performance – allowing management to make the right decisions and manage human resource more efficiently and effectively.
The whole system features a tool that would support fast and efficient transactions and processing of resources, expedite recurring tasks through automation, upgrade technologies making them more open, flexible and scalable, support additional or newer processes or services requiring automation.
Ebue stressed that this is a fully integrated system that consists of the following modules, personnel information management, attendance and logs management, leave administration, payroll, compensation benefits, employee discipline, personnel services, dahsboard and calendar notifications, and self-service employees'portal.
The HRMIS also supports the HR Systems required in the Program to Institutionalize Meritocracy and Excellence in Human Resource Management (PRIME-HRM) of the Civil Service Commission which includes recruitment, selection and placement, learning and development, performance management, and rewards and recognition work streams.
PIA has been accredited by CSC under Level II Maturity for PRIME-HRM in 2018 and was recently conferred the Bronze Award. With the HRMIS in place, the Agency may qualify for Level III Maturity by 2020.
The first phase of the project was launched this week and the entire project implementation is expected to be completed by November 2020.
According to Clavite, the complete roll-out of such system is expected to strengthen the integrity and reliability of HR processes within the Agency, thus enhancing employee satisfaction and organizational productivity. (PIA Central)
