Abstract: This study has been carried to propose an integrated Human Resource Management Information System (HURMIS) that consists of Employee Communication System (ECS) to facilitate information exchange between employees and management, Personnel Research System (PRS) to generate new information for decision, and information service center to provide access to information and promote the use of information. It is integrated so that the activities of each are interrelated with those of the others. The study envisioned such a system as a support system to top executive strategic activities. The marginal contribution of computer in this regard has been theoretically substantiated in two dimensions: top management activities and decision making. Furthermore from the theoretical analysis a framework has been developed to guide the evaluation and the design of the existing and proposed HURMIS. Moreover the factors that influence the characteristics of information system such as the management needs for information, company value, company information policy, and reciprocity with environment have been highlighted. Accordingly, data that are pertinent and relevant to the existing HURMIS are collected. For the purpose of collecting data, methods, such as, questionnaire method, interview method, and literature review have been used. The study reveals that the existing HURMIS in EJRC is functionally and structurally deficient, and without reciprocity with its environment. The thorough analysis of data made certain that it is the management and the shareholders that share the blame for the inadequacy of the information system. The responsibility of bringing the change is ascribed to the board of directors.
