Khorus
Khorus just seemed like a waste of time and money. I'm not sure what it's well suited for, but there wasn't a way to objectively measure your tracking of goals. The visual was nice, but all the goals were so subjective and really not helpful. It's also quite possible that I had the wrong approach.

It's simple to use even for non-technical employees, making it very simple to install even for a workforce that hasn't grown up in the digital age, and for that People HR is the best option to fit in. I haven't got in any situation yet where I see People HR as less appropriate except Applications Tracking Systems as I have never worked on that module much.

Pros
Khorus
  • I honestly found Khorus to be good for keeping a log of my goals.
  • The software itself was easy to navigate
  • It wasn't super buggy

  • Complex reporting is made easy through the reporting capabilities of the system. We have been using reports for the past year and absolutely trust the accuracy of the data produced. The reports are generated easily through the system and can be exported into an editable Excel spreadsheet which is great.
  • The self-service of data is great for freeing up HR time. Employees can update their personal information themselves quickly and easily.
  • The App is a great feature of People HR. A large proportion of our employees work in our warehouse and as such don't have their own computer at work. The app allows those employees easy access to the system on the go.

Cons
Khorus
  • It seems like a glorified spreadsheet at times with a cleaner interface.
  • The objectivity of goal tracking was absent.
  • I don't see that Khorus serves certain teams very well, such as a customer support team. Our goals don't change very often and the ones that we do have are very tedious to log.

  • The UI could do with being more Up to date, i find it easy to use but is quite cartoon like.
  • More Details for skills is required, I have some certifications but the system does not recognise the Brand
  • Emails that are sent out could use an overhaul as they don't stand out as much as i think they should

Alternatives Considered
Khorus
I much prefer Asana to Khorus. It's not only good at tracking but also a task manager. You can see that you are heading towards your goal in an objective approach, assuming that you laid out your project accordingly. Additionally, we use 15Five to get that extra insight as a manager to ask our team how they are doing and if they reached their goals, what's getting in the way, ect.

Prior to initially taking out our PeopleHR contract i reviewed many HR systems and PeopleHR seemed the best option as it seemed to have the most functionality for the best price. However that was many years ago now and since being a customer of PeopleHR and now going with Timetastic, i wouldn't recommend PeopleHR. The costs have increased substantially but there hasn't been any significant improvements in the software that we've seen/utilised. There's also a lot of system issues that seem to occur frequently. Not to mention the service has taken a total nosedive since PeopleHR were taken over by Access. Whilst Timetastic is a much more basic system and really just a holiday planner, the cost is cheaper than anything I've seen on the market. For the more HRIS functionality, we've opted to utilise our O365 and create a Sharepoint HR Management Site which is much more cost effecitve us and we can avoid having to deal with Access which is a huge plus

Return on Investment
Khorus
  • We ended up leaving Khorus and now use 15Five & Asana.
  • I think Khorus is a good idea but wasn't quite there in execution.
  • The initial creation of my goals was a good starting point for accomplishing them. I had to hash out the longterm solutions I was hoping to accomplish.

  • PeopleHR has reduced the amount of holiday queries coming through to the HR Team. This has saved us around 2 hours per week.
  • PeopleHR has increased visibility to line managers of their team and indirect reports for holiday / time management.
  • The ATS has enabled us to automate responses/templates to all candidates applying for roles, send updates, reject, invite to interview etc. in a much quicker time frame. This has reduced hours of work writing emails per week.
  • PeopleHR has given more responsibility and ownership to our managers to do their roles.
