This study explores the relationship between innovation, organizational and environmental characteristics, and the adoption of HRIS. After an extensive review of existing literature, a research model and corresponding questionnaire was developed to collect data using purposive sampling method. The targeted companies were located in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Discriminant analysis of the data reveals that relative advantage, compatibility, complexity, top management support, organization size and HRIS expertise are positively related to the adoption of HRIS. The study also examines whether there is a relationship between the extent of HRIS adoption and innovation, organizational and environmental variables. The results indicate that size of organization has a substantial impact on with the extent of HRIS adoption. However, HRIS expertise is only significant in the regression with total number of HRIS applications as the dependent variable. In a developing country scenario, this study has noteworthy theoretical and practical contribution in the field of HRIS.
