BetterWorks really helps keep track of quarterly objectives, as long as the entire company follows the OKRs framework. The objectives and key results of each employee can be linked to the general objectives of the organization and that really helps align on the same mission. I wouldn't recommend using BetterWorks as a standalone platform to follow up on objectives if the rest of the organization is not on board with the OKRs framework.

Bob is well suited to house documents, build organisational charts, request and authorise time off or sick leave, as well as displaying teams, their time off and their current status (on holiday, on parental leave, active, etc). Bob is also well suited to automate tasks, for example if there is a new starter, it's easy to tell everyone involved what they should do automatically - that's a big weight off the People Team's shoulders. Unfortunately, not everything is possible with Bob. For example, the creation of templates for documents is not ideal, with lots of formatting oddities and building different version of the same documents being generally difficult. Furthermore, the signature function is not legally binding, so can't be use (for example) to send employment contracts for signature.

Cons
Betterworks
  • It's sometimes hard to see ONLY your milestones and goals
  • Having more default units of measure might be nice (or being able to save your own custom ones)
  • Native integrations with software (like HubSpot) would be great

  • I'd like to be able to have flexibility in org charts so that there are options for matrix, flat. I'd also like a printable version of the org chart AND one where names were hidden so it could be shared with individuals outside the organization.
  • In the Performance Reviews I would love to see a 9-box option including corresponding questions so we could plot individuals in the 9-box matrix.
  • It would be ideal if, before a performance review period, managers were given the opportunity to choose 3-4 people they would want to include in a Peer Review of their employees AND where the system would flag if one person was being asked to do more than 2 Peer Reviews.

We've been using it for going on four quarters now and it's become part of how our team plans our work for the quarter, holds ourselves accountable, and decides who is doing what work and why. Without it we'd certainly have to replace it with something else - plus it's so nice to see the other departments and top company goals so easily.

We will without a doubt be continuing to use Hibob, it is convenient, being engaged with and great value for money. A one stop shop for all things HR related to keep policies and safe financial information has been so beneficial to the business meaning less risk to GDPR breaches and somewhere for employees to refer back to in future has been invaluable

Usability
Betterworks
Overall the platform is clean and easy to use. It's quick to learn and not unnecessarily complex. While a few specific filtering features can be wonky it's nice that it's simple and clean. There are a lot of icons where words may be more appropriate in the navigation but otherwise the platform is easy to use and quick to hop into and check in.

Hibob is generally very easy to use or figure out. Their resource library is also fairly extensive and has a lot of videos that are helpful to follow along with.

A lot of support is self-service from the users themselves, via a guide hosted on HiBob's website. I have found the guide helpful 10% of the time when I needed support. The support team is quite quick to reply, but not everyone is helpful unfortunately, and in many cases a lot of emails, messages and back and forth were needed to get to the bottom of an issue. When I pointed out that a video call would be a quicker way to tell people "this is how it's done", I was told that it's not the way they deliver support. I had to beg our account managers for a video chat with some skilled users to show me how to do certain things that (a) were nowhere to be found on the guide, and (b) the support team wasn't able to solve. Additionally, to find solutions, I was pointed to a forum where other users exchange tips on how they managed to solve problems - again, not really helpful as I would like to know this from Bob's team themselves since we're paying for the product, and I shouldn't rely on other users to tell me how they managed their way around a problem

I have used Asana, Jira, and VersionOne. I find BetterWorks the most intuitive and organized. It is fairly easy to use and learn, as long as everyone else does the same. Since the team implemented the quarterly reviews and stayed on top of using it, it has been successful so far.

Hibob was ultimately more flexible and offered a strong customer support network which is why we selected it over others. It's also well-priced and while not "cheap", it was more inexpensive than other larger systems. Their sales team was so supportive the entire time and as we went into the implementation phase (which only took us 12 weeks for 1,000 employees!), it was clear that the support continued. Our implementation specialist was so incredibly helpful and while we worked at our own pace, we were still able to roll it out in 3 months. Having worked on a Workday Implementation before, I was blown away by how quickly we got this done. It's also great that as we are using the product, we can continuously make adjustments on our own and tweak it as the business changes. Workday is so complicated that it required a full-time team to work on it. It's just two of us overseeing the system and we are able to run things smoothly on our own! Of course, it's great having the support of our Account Manager when we get stuck.

Return on Investment

  • A tool like this was highly viewed by the new hires as it shows the company's commitment to track everyone's contribution to corporates goals
  • Provides transparency into what each team does
  • The implementation was a big effort

  • We were paying a third-party HR organization ~100K per year and were able to cut this from our budget by turning on the connections between our ATS, Hibob, and our payroll vendors.
  • We are using the integration between CoMeet ATS, and it autogenerates the employee onboarding, creating a seamless experience for the employees. They used to have to reenter their data in 5 separate systems, now, it's all started in CoMeet, and upon hire, the onboarding data is collected in Hibob and distributed into all other connected systems.
  • When changing employment status, the automation manages system access automatically. (But in cases where we need to override the information for special cases, we still have the option without "breaking" the API connections).
