In this comprehensive course, we’ll explain the basic functions of Employment Information Systems, or EIS. Each lesson includes a video and accompanying written guide for reference. Each tutorial builds upon the previous one, so we recommend the course is viewed chronologically. This course is suitable for absolute beginners, but is also a wonderful resource for returning staff to use as an EIS refresher.
