Deped Is Yet to Operationalize a Human Resource Information System (HRIS)
The absence of an HRIS system makes it difficult for DepEd’s field units, such as the RO and SDOs, to organize and manage teacher-related information, which can be crucial in workforce planning, CPD, capability building, staffing and deployment, performance appraisal, and reporting.
The HRIS will provide easy and secure access to Schools Division Office (SDOs) about teacher information and student profiles.
Information from the HRIS will help facilitate the SDOs formulation of capability-building strategies, addressing teachers’ unique requirements in challenging grade levels and geographical areas.
