Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to examine the impact of Human resource information system (HRIS) on strategic decisions.

Design/methodology/approach – The papers develops a research model based on current literature and then test this model in Mellat and Parsian banks selected from 19 banks with 18000 branches, public and private sectors in Iran. Statistics society consists of 172 persons include assistant of general managers in both personnel affairs and welfare and domestic payments department in Mellat bank, and also professionals, managers and deputy of personnel affair and department of organisation and methods in Parsian bank. The sample size provided based on "Cohan- Morgan- Korjsay" is 108 persons which has been determined with descriptive methods. For data analyzing we used Chi- square test, Binomial test, and Kendall's tau- b test.

Findings – The results indicate that, on average, few differences exist between Mellat and Parsian banks. Moreover, we found that the HRIS is effective on strategic decisions in both banks.

Research limitations/implications – This study could benefit from a large sample, from public and private banks and replication in more branches.

Practical implications – The paper offers practical suggestions to the banking industry and management in general on how to manage the HRIS effects on strategic decisions.

Originality/value – This paper has tried to provide an inclusive understanding about the HRIS effects on strategic decisions in the banking industry. Since there was a lack of such research in an Iranian context, this paper can provide theoretical basis for future researches as well as practical implications for managers and the human resource (HR) professionals.
