Overall Satisfaction with BambooHR

We use BambooHR to automate onboarding and termination processes which eliminates the administrative burden and paperwork. It is used to keep track of employee personal information and to keep track of PTO hours. The HR team uses BambooHR the most and some supervisors [use it too]. The supervisors use it if their employees request to use PTO and they have to approve it. It helps a lot with keeping track of employee information, and sending signature requests. It really helps automate a lot of our processes.
  • Onboarding new employees. It makes the new hire process very simple. You just add in their information about their job and contact. It then automatically sends them a link to register on BambooHR and to fill out the needed documents.
  • Requesting signatures. If there is a time when an employee moves to a new state, you need to ask them to fill out a new tax form. To make that process easier, we use BambooHR to request that signature and you receive that document quicker rather than trying to email and call them. It saves a lot of time.
  • It is user friendly. Employees understand how to navigate their account and the electronic signatures are very straightforward.
  • Adding reports. I have been asked a couple times to generate customized reports via BambooHR. It is a little confusing to select what kind of information that I would like to be added to the report. We have standard reports that we can easily access but when it comes to creating a new report, it can be made a little easier.
  • Positive: It has eliminated administrative burdens. It makes the new hire and termination process much simpler. We hardly need hard copies of anything.
  • Negative: None that I know of.
BambooHR is well suited for new hire and termination processes and keeping track of updated employee information. It is not well suited for keeping track of benefits and payroll.
