PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT AND INFORMATION SYSTEM


PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT AND INFORMATION SYSTEM 

CHAPTER ONE

1.1 INTRODUCTION  

      In most organizations particularly business organizations, most of what goes on consists largely of transactions. A transaction is a recorded event having to do with routine business activities. This includes everything concerning the product or service in which the organization is engaged: production, distribution, sales, order and stock-taking. It also includes the materials purchased, employees hired, taxes paid and so on. Today in most organizations, the bulk of such transactions are recorded in a computer-based information system.

Computer-based information systems are systems that tend to have clearly defined inputs and outputs that enable and provide necessary facilities for accurately and efficiently managing an organizational process. It could be sales, order or record keeping of staff. Information system is a collection of people, procedures, software, hardware and data. Connectivity allows computers to connect and share information, thereby greatly expanding the capability and usefulness of an information system. Computer-based information systems are meant to reduce the stress in managing businesses or organizational procedures.

Management Information System (MIS) is one of the major types of computer-based information systems. It uses the database of an organization in producing well structured forms of reports.

1.2                BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

The development of personnel management dates back to the period of World War I around the year 1915 and more recently to the human relations movement of 1935 – 1950.

In one of the studies of Elton mayor, he discovered that psychological factors as well as social factors influence individuals at work rather than physical factors.

Specific reasons for the development of personnel management include: -

(i)   As a result of increasing influence of trade unions, 

      traditionally personnel administration took on the role of   

      pacifying the trade unions, so that management could be free

      to run the companies       without interference from employees.

(ii)  The formulation of minimum wages low costs and individual    legislations increased the need for a team of personnel specialties.

(iii) As the union became more sophisticated and powerful the 

       need for      highly skilled individual relations should increase.

(iv) The increasing size of business, government and other

       institutions brought new dimension into the profession of

       personnel management. .

Traditionally, it was practiced in homes where the father is the head of the family. It was he who planned what the family should do, the type of farming, size and where to sell the harvested products. His wives and children helped in the process, no external recruitment was involved, so the more wives and children a man had, the more likely it was that the family be well-of. The recent practices of personnel management in Nigeria is tied up with history and development of the public services, private companies and civil services.
