Human Resource functions have always been considered as the backbone powerhouse of organizations but have traditionally been relatively slower in technology adoption. However, after the COVID-19 pandemic, HR seems to have taken the centre stage since companies realized that cloud computing can help manage their Human Resource. This study therefore sought to assess the influence of human resource cloud systems on performance of East Africa Breweries Companies (EABL). In order to fulfil this research, a case study was conducted on East African Breweries Ltd (EABL) a leading branded beverage business in the East Africa region. This study adopted descriptive research design. The study targeted Human Resource management level employees of EABL located in their headquarters in Nairobi. The target population was therefore 15 employees. The study used primary data collected using semi-structured questionnaires. The questionnaires were administered using Google forms. The study collected quantitative data which analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics computed using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS). The findings were presented in tables. The study found that improvement in human resource cloud systems in would lead to an increase in Performance of East Africa Breweries Limited. The study recommends the need for EABL to adopt a unified plan and procedures for the use of cloud computing technologies, especially with regard to human resource management and to the development of work in general, and to include disclosure reports in companies to the extent of their application and use of cloud computing technologies
