Pros

I had previously used TruPay before coming to this company, so I found the transition to be extremely comfortable for me. I like the ease of use and ability to pull a variety of reports with ease.
The customer service for resolving issues is excellent as I am one of the individuals responsible for maintaining our system.
How easy we can run reports. There are a few more features that we like and user friendly.

Pros

Employment Hero is super easy to use. The instant benefit we received was taking our onboarding and HR to a system with paperless processes.
The team at Employment Hero are extremely capable from sales to integrations, they listen carefully and ensure the best available options are applied to meet your operational needs.
We have enjoyed employment hero as it has allowed us to have the ability to manage leave more effectively and store our policy documents in the one place.

Cons

Another inconvenience is the lack of fingerprint login feature on phones. I also found it inconvenient that the website password has to be changed every 60 days.
We really have very few problems with it. There are a lot of options that we won't need or use so the Kronos Community site is a bit confusing.
During implementation, we were constantly told 'the system does not do that', or 'that can't be done. Out implementation process was terrible, and we still don't have everything working.

Cons

Inability and restriction on scheduling report, announcement etc means you cannot customise this.
The cons we are facing at the moment is missing out on some of the payroll functions as we are running payroll through another system.
Occasionally when I email employment contracts to staff they have difficulty with finding this email in their junk mail / spam / inbox. Some are not able to find this at all.

Pros

I like most that it is a 1 stop shop for all my employment needs. I can clock in and out, see my payroll info as well as my pay stubs and pretty much all my employment info.

Cons

Seems kind of glitchy and slow sometimes and I often have to restart the app

Kronos Workforce

Reviewed 5 years ago

I have used Kronos through my past two places of employment and never had any trouble with it. It seems very user friendly.

Pros

Kronos has an easy to read format that helps easily track your work hours. It allows you to easily view past timecards as well.

Cons

Never had any problems with Kronos though I never had to edit it on a managerial side.

Solid Software but not the best for small businesses.

Reviewed 7 months ago
Pros

I use this at my primary place of employment and have for years. It's a big company within an even bigger corporation so for them it's incredibly important to keeping things running smooth when it comes to the human resource department.

Cons

It was just too much for my small business. It also did not integrate with our other already installed interfaces.

Most Comprehensive System on the Market

Reviewed 7 years ago

My organization started with WFR's HR and TML. Employees, managers and administrators were impressed with the ease of use, the robust amount of information at their finger tips and the reporting capabilities. After a year and a half of using HR and TML, my organization decided to transfer our payroll to WFR as well. Having HR, Time and Labor and Payroll integrated with each other has allowed my HR team to evolve from and administrative department to a strategic business partner.

Pros

I love that employees and managers have virtual personnel files at their fingertips. Through Employee Self Service, employees can access and change their address, beneficiaries, payroll information, enroll online for benefits, request time off and maintain their schedules. Managers can access employment history, process compensation changes, approve timesheets and upload and review current and previous performance reviews. Instead of tracking down information, entering payroll changes and being the timesheet monitor, my team and I can use our knowledge and skills to make our employees and organization better.

Cons

The reporting functions in WFR are robust but each organization has specific reports required by leadership. Enhancing the reporting function for easier report customization would be my only critique.

EH is a wonderful tool for business

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall it is great.

Pros

Being able to integrate with a variety of software; the ease of use; making your team self-accountable for maintaining their leave amounts; one source of truth for HR; policies set up and ready to go

Cons

Probably just me, but I get a little lost on some of the uses.

Employment Hero is Hero

Reviewed 3 years ago

My experience with EH has bee great and very satisfactory. I will recommend this software to anyone wanting to make a difference in Human Resources processes in their company

Pros

Employment hero is user friendly and so easy to use. With the click of a button you can automate a variety of Human Resources and Payroll process within you company. The customisation and ready to use functionality of this software allows you to implement this internally without any need for third party specialist.

Cons

Inability and restriction on scheduling report, announcement etc means you cannot customise this . It will be great if more research and development is done on scheduling reports, announcements etc .

Vendor response

Hi Deep, Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences with Employment Hero with others. We're so happy to see that you've had such a positive experience with the platform and so user-friendly. Thank you also for sharing your feedback regarding scheduling reports and announcements. Employment Hero spent over $8 million on product development last year, so our platform is always adding more functionality to keep up with our customers' needs. I've passed your feedback on to our product team who will factor it into future development plans. Thank you again, Anna from Employment Hero

HR made easy

Reviewed 4 years ago

The fact we can have up to 350 people inducted and work ready over our peak season the thing we loved most was the ease in which we could do multiple pays per week for the different divisions we have, and the fact employees can access their payslips, leave balances etc is just awesome. We most definitely saved hours pay day by using this system very happy we made the change to Employment Hero.

Pros

We found the system super easy to use once set up had been completed it was a very simple process to move over to Employment Hero - We use a lot of seasonal workers through Cherry season and this system made it so much easier for employees as well as the admin team.

Cons

Not so much as liking least but it just took a while to work out which information was where in the menu

Vendor response

Hi Dearne, Thank you so much for taking the time to review Employment Hero and to provide so much detail about your experiences. We really appreciate it. We're so glad we can help you manage your onboarding and offboarding across seasons and that all your employees love having their employment documents on hand whenever they need them. We look forward to supporting you and the team for many more seasons to come! Thank you again, The Team at Employment Hero

Good software - very difficult implementation journey

Pros

Comprehensive platform with lots of features.

Cons

We have found the implementation journey very difficult. Having to rely on email for every question and waiting up to a day for a reply makes the process agonizingly slow and expensive. There have been a few software glitches and we have been told we will hear back, but each time the ball, unfortunately, gets dropped. Suggest that Employment Hero add a well-trained phone support team which will really...

Hi Brad, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I'm so sorry to hear that implementation has been difficult! Ensuring our customers have a great experience is very important to us and behind the scenes we are working on a number of initiatives to help improve this part of the customer journey. I have passed on your valuable feedback to our team. Thank you for your continued support. Many thanks, Anna
