I have used a number of other HRIS tools, and this is by far the easiest! The integrations and customization are very easy to understand, and the system is wonderful in storing the deleted task lists in case of internal operations changes. We have successfully integrated our employee gift system "Gifted," JumpCloud, Slack, and more! This has reduced the number of manual tasks our teams have to do to update changes in employment.

For a medium sized company I believe Skyward is an acceptable and not too complicated system. I do not work with the back end so I am not aware of the reporting capabilities which would be a deciding factor for some companies. For K12 Education it seems to check all the boxes

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 Captcha screen can be needlessly complex or hard to guess due to letters overlapping
  • Then time off screen defaults to 0 hours when creating a new entry and the zero does not get replaced... turning 8 hours into 80 hours unintentionally

      Alternatives Considered

      Hibob

      Miles better than Youmanage - pretty much incomparable, Bob is that much further ahead. I was using Workday in a much bigger organisation and it worked fantastically there. I don't know if HiBob would have been as effective with a workforce of more than 3,000. However, on the flip side, I don't believe that Workday would have been as successful as HiBob has been with our current workforce size. Overall, HiBob is a great system with some amazing features. I think it will be exciting to see what the product looks like in 5 years as it has real potential to grow and get better.

      Return on Investment

      Hibob

      • It's a great reminder for people's birthdays which is nice as people will plan to get a cake/present sent to the person whose birthday it is, so it's good from a company culture perspective which is something we are very keen on
      • It has had a positive impact on our ROI
      • The cost benefit analysis of Hibob has shown that the benefits have outweighed the costs
