LAHORE: Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB), in collaboration with the School Education Department (SED), has launched a Human Resource Management System (HRMS) on Friday. The system, where 386,000 school teachers and 4,000 supervisory staff will upload their data, will enable the school education department to not only access teachers’ profile on a click but will also assist in performance-based decision making, promotions, transfers, inquiries and dismissals without any hassle. Punjab Secretary Education Department Muhammad Mahmood along with PITB Chairman Azfar Manzoor launched the HRMS. The secretary said that HRMS will help the department in automating processes and provide remote access and employee self-service while replacing a highly cumbersome and time-consuming conventional mechanism.
