Abstract

This study explored the line managers’ perspective on the organizational factors affecting the implementation of the Human Resource Information System (HRIS) in the Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDA’S) in the Upper West Region (UWR) of Ghana. In order to accomplish the purpose of the study, five organizational factors were explored from literature namely: Top Management Support, Financial Resources, Training, Relative Advantage and Change Management. Data was collected through a questionnaire. 187-line managers were purposively selected from the eleven MMDA’s in the UWR of Ghana. Data was analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Software (SPSS). The study concluded that, Top Management Support, Financial Resources, Training, had a moderate level of acceptance as factors that affect the implementation of the HRIS whereas Relative Advantage and Change Management had a low level of acceptance. The study also concluded that Top Management Support, Relative Advantage had correlation with Effectiveness whereas Financial Resources, Training, Change Management had no correlation with the Effectiveness. The study recommended that top management must support and provide enough financial resources in the implementation of the HRIS.
