This study explored the use of information Systems (IS) for efficient human resources management practices in selected organisations in the Kumasi metropolis. The study used a multiple case study approach, and employed a mixed-method methodology in order to help find out the efficient use of Information Systems for Human Resource Management practices in some selected organizations. Questionnaires and interviews were the main data collection tools used to generate data from employees and managers of the selected organisations. The study revealed that Information Systems usage is common among all the organisations selected for this study because of its enormous benefits to them. Furthermore, the result shows that IS plays a major role in HRM practices in the organisations such as recruiting, training and the development of staff. The study indicated that the use of IS in HRM practices helped the organisations in terms of efficiency, quality and consolidation of information, and transparency within organizations. The study recommends that organisations should use HR Information Systems.
