Company CDE manually handles payroll, employee information, and employee leaves. This led to disorganized documents and an overall unproductive working environment for employees. Payroll generation was tedious and susceptible to errors, employees had difficulties accessing their personal information and submitting requests because the entire process was manual. This took a lot of their time and affected their productivity.

The researchers used a Hybrid Software Engineering model in developing the human resource information system (HRIS). In the planning phase, they used the Waterfall Model, and the Agile Methodology during the development phase. To address the needs of the client, the researchers created an HRIS that will handle employee leaves, attendance, information, loan, and payroll.

The Hybrid Model was effective in developing the HRIS. Through the Waterfall Model, the needs of the client were documented as the requirements and a system prototype was made. Doing so was helpful in the Agile Methodology development phase because the use of the Waterfall Model aided in making sure that all client needs were addressed. The Agile Methodology helped in ensuring the good quality of the system through the constant meetings required. Overall, the client was pleased with the resulting system.
