Managing employees and work can get hectic at times. Especially for small startups who are not in a state to afford highly expensive client-server back office applications.
That's not the case anymore. HR has undergone a significant change over the past couple of years. The role of HR has expanded ever since then. HR managers have access to more data than ever before which helps them in making key hiring decisions as great companies are created by hiring great people.
With over 2 million+ apps available on the Apple's App Store and Google's Play Store each and the number of smartphone users worldwide topping 2 billion, there's no doubt that we now have an app for just about everything.
How about HR? Is there any app for HR managers as well?
Yes, a number of apps have emerged for this purpose to help HR managers in not only finding talent but also with onboarding, performance as well as benefits. It makes their job more effective and a lot easier.
In this article, I'll present a list that I compiled with Elliswhittam.com of four such apps that can make your work easier and boost your workplace's productivity!
If you run a small or midsize business and are looking for a cloud-based HR software, BambooHR is a perfect choice. It has a human resource information system (HRIS) that manages all aspects of the employee lifecycle.
It has automation tools to fetch much-needed data such as employee turnover, retention, etc. Multiple admin seats, user support, and inactive employees can be added. The access to the app can also be restricted to specific employees and what information they can see can also be controlled.
Pricing varies according to the number of employees along with a one-time implementation fee. This one is definitely not the cheapest option in the list, but one of the best in the market. You get what you pay for.
If you are looking for a free alternative of BambooHR, Zenefits is for you. It is one of the most popular all-in-one HR apps today. Backed by a freemium pricing model, it does its job well.
Tasks like time off tracking, employee onboarding, benefits management and automated payroll can be easily accomplished using the Zenefits app. All the functions are integrated into a user-friendly online dashboard.
This app provides a wide range of service-related activities, tasks, and processes to make your day-to-day work life easier than ever. Using this app, you can define, structure and automate the workflow for faster and scalable operations.
The best part- the app is not just for the HR department, other departments of the enterprise can also make use of this app for a smooth work life.
