People HR, solid could do more...

2017-08-15

I'm sure some of my cons can be resolved and further training on the system would improve my knowledge. People Hr has the potential to be a non corporate HR system but is in-between at the minute.

Pros

It provides a clear structure for a HR user to input employee data It has the ability to group employee data from a wide range of sources and information to get a complete view of an individual Sections such as the logbook are bespoke and can be edited to create your own forms and data capture There are self service options so line managers and employees can update their personal data

Cons

Feels less real time chat and more like an email function

An excellent economic solution to our HRM administration.

2017-09-05

Both the sales, implementation and customer service staff are friendly, knowledgeable and really can't do enough to help you.

Pros

Ability for employees and managers to self service holiday and absence management.

Cons

Some limitations. Mainly functionality between the app and desktop. Expenses app only, but timesheets are desktop only :-/ However PeopleHR are constantly listening and making improvements with an 'ideas' website that allows users to make suggestions and vote on suggestions made by other people.

Brilliant

2017-06-28

Since first joining the company imported all our information and were all helpful in showing myself how to use everything.

Pros

Staff have found it easy to request holidays and know when their colleagues are away Reports are easy to run and can build your own report Reminders of staff birthdays

Cons

Not having a 'management team' group so they are able to see everyone's holidays in the business and their personal information

Intuitive & time saving!

2017-06-28

Time saving & great reporting.

Pros

There are many features that we don't use as we are currently a smaller company (5 employees) but the ones we do are great.

Cons

The tasks system designed to encourage your learning journey as a user of People HR isn't quite as useful as it might be - needs improving.

Great & full of feature HR application for all business type

2018-03-26

Pros

It has the features from recruitment, training, review, and resignation checklist, all of these features are connected with each other.

Cons

Also, there's no direct link to each feature/data, so it will be difficult to share a link with another HR team.

Easy to use HR system in the mid-price range

2018-05-18

The team have been really helpful along the way from choosing the system to implementation and on-going support. If I move companies and need to choose a HR system again from scratch I'd definitely consider PeopleHR

Pros

Easy to use, quite self explanatory, videos are quite helpful.

Cons

Individuals can't add lieu time to be authorised by their manager, HR have to do it via a 'work around' so they can request the time off.

I love the ideas page - where we can contribute in regards to new functions we would like to see on People HR

Pros

Ease of use Reporting function Helpful customer service Regular updates/improvements All employee information in one place

Brought me into the 21st Century

2017-12-20

Love the software, love the support and I have already recommended the software to a couple of local recruitment agencies as they are looking to modernise too.

Pros

Great reports and statistics available too which helps with end of year holiday planning.

Cons

Having to manually add my employees history is going to be a big task as all our records were paper based.

People HR is my favourite toy

2017-06-23

PeopleHR are also open to any suggestions of how to improve the site, and may take those on board. The support team are great at getting back to you on any queries.

Pros

Great visual dashboard. So easy to move about the system.

Cons

It would be good if we could select what columns appear when you click on the employees tab. For us, the payroll number would be a useful column, without having to go through to the employees record to look that up.

2017-12-20

Pros

I like the layout of the profiles we find that this is engaging for our employee populations.

Very user-friendly system

2018-04-11

PeopleHR is a great system and all employees find it very easy to use.

Pros

PeopleHR is a very user-friendly system and it both the HR team and the employees can work with it comfortably, without any prior training.

Cons

It would be beneficial if there was a whole new section about probations/reminders/outcomes (instead of having to use Logbook)

Great HRIS System!

2017-10-05

Pros

PeopleHR reps respond very quickly (less than 24 hours) - User friendly for employees and the employer - Great system to maintain EE records, ATS, run report etc.

Cons

Every entry including the first entries are changes -System doesn't allow for public holidays to be half days (Some days in the U.S are given as half days to employees) -ATS doesn't show which recruiter made a change.

People is a straight-forward and inexpensive service for managing HR needs in your business.

2018-03-11

There are REST APIs that we are starting to use to allow for anything "non-standard" and these are starting to be used in our organisation.

Pros

There are some use and "fun" metrics that you can take away about your company from the dashboard. Line managers receive regular alerts about their teams.

Cons

Timekeeping for employees is flexible, but actually recording time is long-winded. The UI is simple and straightforward in some areas, but feels a little awkward in others

PeopleHR streamline's Immense's HR function and appears to be a scalable solution to complement our company growth aspirations

2017-09-04

Pros

The ATS feature allows us to track vacancies and applicants through our recruitment campaign - something we didn't have in place beforehand

Cons

Built-in reports are useful (like overall holiday bookings) but don't allow you to click in to overall stats to get a breakdown (i.e. show outstanding holiday bookings by employee). Also sometimes some error messages are not explained enough - for example until I contacted help via online chat (which was very good) it was unclear why a combination of holiday and other event bookings wasn't being accepted (turned out as it was half day to one and half day to another they had to end / start at 1:30 which wasn't clearly indicated)

2018-03-30

I do like how PeopleHR is constantly updating the system with features that are more efficient.

Pros

Every feature explains its functions in simplest terms.

Cons

It would be great if an applicant's files/comments in ATS could carry over into the Employees section.

A great inexpensive option for small to medium size businesses

2017-08-15

Pros

Easy for employees to use the basic functions which reduces management time.

Cons

The ATS displays candidates after they've become employees. It would make more for them to disappear from the ATS screen as the ATS history displays on the new employees record.

Not the most intuitive or flexible, but you get a lot when you take some time to really study it

2017-09-05

Very happy with Will in support to help sort out our integration with Greenhouse.

Pros

I like how customer service is pretty on point and how a lot of data is available to you, when you take the time to learn about the system.

Cons

For example: you cannot remove items from a self-populated drop-down if previous employees (leavers) still carry one of those items on their name.

Great System and Very USer Friendly

2017-07-31

Pros

It also has a signature option where you can request for a document to be signed.

Cons

Also the data when you export into excel (especially sickness/absence) comes out in a custom format which when doesn't work from a payroll point of view when using for deductions.

PeopleHR has come a long way!

2015-07-21

Pros

* The interface is excellent - very easy to use, no training required for my employees. * Fresh and new - I look forward to their system updates as they're constantly adding new things.

Cons

* Holiday tracking - you can't assign employees different holiday years (not everyone in our company has the same start/end to their holiday year) which may mean we need to go elsewhere for holiday tracking as we've had to revert to an Excel document to track half of our employees; also, if an employee leaves a comment when requesting a holiday in the system, it doesn't show up in emails, which means the manager has to log into the system to see if the employee left a comment * ATS - wish there was a way to collaborate more on here (e.g.

A great multifeature product but needs some time to learn to navigate

2017-12-20

Pros

Variety of features, system works quickly and efficiently, great design Different access levels is useful to manage multi teams and locations Clear and comprehensive planner, good there is an option to auto carry over the remaining holidays Task feature handy and easy to use Very comprehensive reports/queries feature Detailed employee profiles, ability to set personalised work patterns Great service and help from the People team plus and great online training material provided

Cons

Cannot re-route timesheets authorisations to the additional reporting line (holidays only) Would be handy to approve expenses from the email or a least to have a link ''Please log in to People to see the details'' Would be quicker to have direct link from the email into the area within PeopleHR system (e.g. to people profiles when clicking on the name) News could have a ''like'' button Notification email of New News Alert could include the title of the news, so people instantly now what is it related to Expenses app: handy features would be a possibility to enter the expenses of someone else's behalf; the app to have a scanner for the receipts which would enable to populate the fields on the expense report automatically without a need to add manually Not possible to add a link through bulk actions (document attachments only) Would be very handy to create performance reviews with different questions for the employee and the manager Org Chart: cannot delete additional information and only leave a photo and job title; cannot download pdf with org chart orientation set to left, right etc.

It's a simple system to use, and the support team are always quick to respond to my queries (usually within 12 hours).

2018-04-27

Pros

Employees are able to self serve fairly easily which means it's technically less admin heavy for the HR team.

Cons

I'm not sure if they have to follow a script but sometimes their communication is a little off. Once we clarify what we mean however their help is great, just seems to be a stumbling block initially.

User friendly!

2018-01-17

For me, the best part of the software is the 'Chat' interface with customer support and the developers.

Pros

Straight forward software built with the end user in mind - the employees. From inputting the initial data to updating existing fields is simple and intuitive.

Cons

The freedom to type anything into some fields can be vexing if your are running reports and want a standard output.

People HR - a big marginal gain!

Pros

Streamlines our HR processes Monitoring and measuring made easy Tasks quick to set up Dashboard shows a great snapshot Easy to manage Great customer support from People HR Great reports which we can adapt for our company's needs

Cons

Notifications we receive by email include completed tasks - but this could be down to user not understanding how to use the system effectively.
