For small businesses and particularly Human Resources Function, it is not affordable to buy softwares. The price of the software is sometime high and often remains unapproved. For this, there are many open source softwares (open source softwares are free softwares) but who are reliable and what to be chosen.
Here is the list which may be useful to you.

3. ICeHrm - Human Resource Management
Introduction: iCE Hrm is a Human resource management system for small and medium sized organizations. It has a rich UI built with PHP and Java Script. The system is implemented with a modular architecture which makes it extendable and customizable easily. With a smaller code base and highly readable object oriented Java Script and PHP implementation, it won't take much time for a smart developer to understand and start making changes to iCE Hrm core and support modules.
TimeTrex is a complete web-based payroll and time management suite which offers employee scheduling, time & attendance (timeclock, timesheet), job costing, human resource management (HRM), invoicing and payroll all in tightly integrated package.

Its quite easy, good and customisable, online time and attendance cum HRMS software. I just did the sign up process and tested. I found its quite simple and usable. It is good for any Small and Medium Enterprises.
The LATRIX is an HR support web application. It provides presence and attendance recording, attendance tracking, paperless leave applications (with freely definable leave types), block periods, a fire register and extensive reporting options.
6. Convergence training viewer (ctv) - Free learning management desktop software
