Why you need to integrate your LMS with your HR system

A corporate learning management system has the potential to deliver significant value to your organisation, but you will not be able to take full advantage if it is not integrated with your HR system(s).

HR systems – known as Human Resources Management Systems (HRMS), Human Resources Information Systems (HRIS) or Human Capital Management (HCM) – already collect a lot of data which can feed into your LMS automatically when integrated. This saves considerable administrative time and costs because it prevents the same information having to be input twice and eliminates discrepancies as both systems will work with the same data.

Integration means that records of a new joiner can be created from when they complete an assessment during recruitment or start their first day with the business. The LMS will automatically create a profile for your learning and development team, so that the employee’s workplace training and personal development start immediately.

Where an employee needs to pass exams, apply for licences or complete CPD activities for compliance, an LMS synced with an HR system can automatically flag this up. It will also enable single sign on so employees and managers can sign on once to access all systems.

The best LMS systems now feature machine learning, predictive analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) and where they can apply data mining to process more data from integrated HR systems, they can generate more detailed and accurate reports to make better decisions and suggestions.

Integrating your LMS with HR will also make it easier to spot trends and patterns in your organisation, such as the effect of training on profitability, career development, employee satisfaction and retention. It can ahelp with career planning and succession management, as a pool of potential candidates for key roles can be quickly identified from existing information.

Your LMS and HR system(s) use the same data for different purposes so integrating them enables even better management and development of your workforce.
