Abstract: The study identifies human resources information systems (HRIS) and their impact on the competitive advantage of Jordanian cement companies (Lafarge Cement Company, Arab White Cement Company, Manaseer). To achieve the objectives of the study, a questionnaire was developed for data collection, and then the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS.16.1) was used to analyze the data of the questionnaire. The study produced a series of results, the most prominent of which are: The level of importance of human resources information systems (the efficiency, integration, and response of human resources information systems) in Jordanian cement companies according to the respondents' perceptions was “medium”. Moreover, human resources information systems had an effect on competitive advantage. Human resources information systems accounted for 69.8% of the variation in competitive advantage in Jordanian cement companies. In the light of the study’s results, the study produced several recommendations, the most important of which is to design training programs for employees and users of human resources information systems. The study also stressed on the importance of providing and constantly upgrading and maintaining the basic infrastructure for hardware, equipment, and software used in human resources information systems, to minimize the occurrence of potential errors that may disrupt required work.
