Hibob

I have loved when different teams come to People Ops asking if Hibob can do something or if something can be added to it. Often, our answer is "yes"! We love how flexible Hibob is and now that we understand the logic of the system, we are confident in adding different flows and tasks to suit our needs. As a rapidly growing and changing company, it is necessary that we are able to make our own changes without needing to consult a Hibob team member. Of course, it is also very nice having our own Account Manager who can help us understand features better...but it's great that we don't HAVE to go to them every time we need to change something. For a team of just under 1,000, we have been able to successfully run Hibob with just a two person team. I do wish their Onboarding features were better as we could use all the help we can get there. I'd like to not have to use another system and it makes sense for an HRIS to have a robust Onboarding tool. I feel like Onboarding was just created as another flow/function in Hibob and hasn't been thought through completely. There are many opportunities to improve like being able to send to the personal email of an employee; sending login information directly through Hibob; and tracking new hires as they flow through Greenhouse.

SAP HR can be well suited for global companies with operations in multiple countries. The Payroll module needs to be limited to one instance per country, otherwise trying to maintain multiple countries on the same instance is too complicated. I would not recommend using SAP HR and Payroll for smaller companies because the total cost of ownership and the lack of flexibility will make it unfeasible. There are many cloud-based options now a days available that would fit better for this type of scenario.

Pros

Hibob

  • Shout-out/Kudos/Poll on the home page is a real engagement tool if used regularly.
  • Performance evaluation module - expensive, but so flexible, customizable and fits every possible need.
  • Onboarding and offboarding workflows are upgraded and save lots of unnecessary administrative work.
  • They have wonderful support and customer care!

Cons

Hibob

  • Tasks - For something like onboarding, I wish there was a way to set up the tasks so that the person setting up the employee profile would be the only person to get the assigned tasks. It's hard to describe but for example, if there are multiple on-boarders on the team, is there a way to set up the tasks so that technically every on-boarder would be assigned to the task, but the person setting up the profile is the one that triggers the task for themselves.
  • Reports - I find pulling reports a bit complicated, especially if I am asked to pull data that involves info being located in different areas of an employee profile. For example, for a couple of months, I thought it was impossible to pull a variable pay report along with the base salary (in one report rather than pull two separate reports) only to find out that you can do that via the Total Compensation report. Also when I have to pull data for headcount since a certain day, I wish you can make the settings so that data can appear after a certain day, rather than sorting it manually via Excel/Google sheets.
  • Timesheet - I love the functionality of the timesheet that hibob provided, but I also wish they included an option where people can set up predicted work schedules for future dates. Currently, the timesheets are ideals for scenarios where employees time in and out of work.

  • The interface and graphic look and feel are not very modern.
  • Provide more intuitive and easier screens and functionality - Too many scroll bars.
  • Make messages back to users more descriptive.

      Alternatives Considered

      Hibob

      Namely did not have connected modules, so it was difficult to manage data across the different sites. They didn't have a large suite of API connections. Workday required technical experts to code and manage everything, is not user-friendly, and did not have historical data options available. BambooHR lacked technical options, it was a lot of manual work to make it look seamless to the employees. Paycor was awful - no smart fields, no retro calculations, the reports were terrible, and there was no point in time reporting. No API connections for any outside tools.

      SAP

      • SAP HR is suited for large companies with a sufficient budget. Small budgets will not be able to cover the expensive licensing, technical personnel and consultants required of an SAP installation.
      • In regards to the total cost of ownership, my ROI experience has been that by replacing SAP HR modules with cloud solutions we have been able to reduce the cost up to 60% while modernizing our systems and improving the employee experience.
      • I would encourage decision makers to look for cloud-based alternatives with a robust system integration, before believing that supporting every area of HR with a single SAP installation is a good long-term strategy. Having SAP HR as the core integrated to best-in-class cloud-based systems is a very valid and effective system strategy.
