    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.

    It's a good space to have a high level overview of the organization (especially Org view). Places for improvement include extra levels of complexity when you need to click on the person and you are navigated to the pop-up that is hard to use and only one pop up can be used at a time. I wish there wasn't so much of clicking in and clicking out.

    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!

    • Very customizable. Very easy to create new workflows and tasks to meet the unique needs of your organization.
    • The system is easy to navigate, so minimal training is needed for users.

    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.

    • Deeper data management/review - dashboard experience could be better and deeper
    • Ability to drill into reports within the tool- right now it takes you out to a sheet to view
    • Org planning/org chart sharing

        To use this system you need to buy several add-ons. If add-ons do not fit your business model you will have to access platforms from different companies. The system is not easy to use for onboarding. Candidates cannot change and update settings. To use the system a person must click in the correct spots. If not it leads you someplace else. Then you have to start clicking all over again.

        Sapling HR helps my HR team keep track of our personal information like contact information or t-shirt sizes (who doesn't like free shirts), as well as helping new hires onboard. I think it's super simple to use and keeps everything pretty nicely organized.

        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.

        • Employee engagement has improved - employees love the system.
        • HiBob is our source of truth for HR. We use it to support other functions with data & Bob does this superbly.
        • Improved our reviews; being able to input all the data into the system is great.

        • We were able to get the system implemented very quickly, which was of great importance to us as we were undergoing rapid growth.
        • The system has helped us keep and stay organized and allowed team members to work collaboratively to get tasks done. Many of these tasks were previously managed with various spreadsheets and other trackers that were quickly becoming unmanageable.
        • Sapling has greatly decreased the time we needed to onboard and employee and has prevented many errors.
