Requesting and approving vacation requests and sick days. Tracking employee documents. Sharing notes and resources in one centralized place for all employees. By automating the busy work of running a business, we are empowering bosses to focus on what really matters. In addition, our social features, for example, providing a venue for employees to voice their ideas or give and receive kudos, provide a vehicle for increasing morale.

How does it work?

Once a company registers with TribeHR, they are given a URL that leads employees to the system, which they can then log into with their own user ID and password. From there, employees can perform a multitude of tasks that normally clutter inboxes or soak up administrators’ time. (Or, if you’re the administrator, your time.)

Vacation Tracking

Through this feature, employees can select the specific days they would like off, and they are given a space to state their reason. Since TribeHR tracks how many vacation (or sick/personal) days the employee has earned, you are better enabled to determine whether to grant the request. In addition, the manager can see who else is requesting days off so that they can immediately see where they will be shorthanded. TribeHR also categorizes the types of off-time the employees take.

Employee Development

Instead of all gathering at 6 a.m. and reciting a company cheer, what if you had an interface where you could build morale and establish goals without making your employees barf? Through TribeHR, employers can set and track goals, host feedback, and store employee performance reviews, complete with notes, comments and skills assessments. In fact, an employer could actually rank employees by their skill set.

Other Cool Stuff

Rather than a convoluted server with folders and files, employees and managers can share notes of varying privacy through the application. A public feed allows employers to post employee kudos, so that everyone can see that Jane Doe exceeded sales goals for the month a week in advance. As earlier mentioned, one could use TribeHR as a central staging point for necessary employee documents and resources, and there is an area to post in-house job openings.

 Middle of the road program. Lots of features that are fine, nothing to blow you away.

All the features are acceptable here. Reviews, time off requests, company resources. Some features like goals and kudos could use more work though.

GetApp Analysis

TribeHR is a social HR (human resources) platform whose unified HR suite allows HR professionals to concentrate on the more value-adding aspects of their jobs and less on repetitive administrative functions such as time-off tracking, updating of employee records, and others. It aims to make HR management more engaging for employees, managers and HR professionals through wizards, intuitive workflows, profiles and social recognition.

TribeHR reduces menial tasks for HR officers and empowers individual employees by allowing them to maintain an updated record on their own. It fosters an enjoyable work environment through its kudos tools that recognize jobs well done, and bring assistance, as well as fun things, to people’s attention. Created for small businesses to large enterprises, some of TribeHR’s main features are employee profile with self-serve capabilities, kudos that can be tied to performance reviews, applicant tracking, performance management and time-off tracking.

What is TribeHR?

TribeHR’s core HRIS (human resource information management) features consist of a searchable company directory, employee self-service, personalized employee profiles, dynamic organizational chart, employee history timeline, employee and resource document storage, compensation tracking, corporate calendar, employee time-off tracking, HRIS reports and multi-location and currency support tracking. On the talent management side, functionalities it supports include 360 feedback, peer and public recognition, skills tracking, goal management, reviews, and alignment of employee goals with the company’s values and culture.

For recruiting, it’s equipped with an applicant tracking system, social network integration, resume collection, job board, hiring teams and review notes. TribeHR also has an iOS app, which offers employee self-service, time-off management, employee directory and kudos – a feature available to all customers regardless of the package they’re subscribed to.

Main Features

Employee Profile

TribeHR has three user types: employees, managers and administrators. Employees are the most basic users and are provided with their own login credentials so they can update their own records through TribeHR’s employee self-serve system. Employees can only access their own data, including data other users share with them. Managers can access their own data plus those of employees who directly report to them. Administrators, on the other hand, can see everything, in addition to configuring the company’s domain settings and adding company holidays.

If you’re an employee and you need to update your data (e.g., you just moved to a new address), once logged in to TribeHR, point to your name at the top of the page and click My Employee File. When you click on the Edit Profile link, you’re ready to update your account details, employee details, job details, even your profile picture. An employee profile includes basic data, complete history, related documents and vacation tracking information, recent kudos, active goals, employee skills, and notes.

Kudos

Various studies show that employees are motivated by praise, and not so much by money, which goes to show that frequent employee recognition is a surefire way to motivate and keep employees engaged. TribeHR’s peer and public recognition feature helps cultivate a high-performance culture and reinforce positive behavior in the workplace. To encourage peer recognition, the green Kudos button is visibly displayed on the right hand side of pretty much every TribeHR page, which makes it easy for employees to publicly recognize their colleagues and for managers to send their team members congratulatory messages.

All commendations are stored in the employee’s record and prominently shown on the dashboard. Managers can even automatically tie them to employee performance reviews. Plus, employees have the option to post recently received recognitions to their Facebook pages.

Applicant Tracking

TribeHR’s applicant tracking feature is designed to help HR administrators organize their hiring process. It starts with a customizable job board to match your company’s branding and website. Applications can be accepted via email, or through the applicants’ LinkedIn and Facebook profiles. TribeHR creates a file for each applicant, which are then kept in a single location for easy access and collaboration.

Whether public or internal, for each posted position, the hiring team is selected and assigned. And for every application received, the hiring team is automatically notified based on pre-defined preferences. Depending on your hiring protocols, applicants can first be screened by reviewers before they move on to the hiring team. All interviewer notes, ratings and comments are kept in one place. Once hired, an applicant’s data, including resumes and cover letters, are automatically transferred to the TribeHR employee file.

Performance Management

TribeHR provides three tools to track and manage employee performance: goals, kudos and skills. The Goals tool allows managers and employees to track goals and objectives on an individual and team level. To add a goal, visit the employee profile and click the Add a New Goal button. The goal should have a title, description, start and due dates. Public goals appear in the company calendar, and employees can opt to keep their goals private or share them with teammates. Goal participants receive the goal on their employee files and see them on their overview pages when logged in. Once the goal is complete, they receive a news item on their overview page.

Kudos can automatically be tied to period-end performance reviews, and once received, a news item will be published in the company’s overview page for everyone to see. The Skills tool is used by managers to identify certain skills and competencies in individual employees, which are then tracked across the company. The generated matrix report is used to pinpoint areas for employee development. TribeHR gives managers the option to automatically include skills in their review templates. TribeHR also tracks 360 feedback, a system where employees receive anonymous feedback from their colleagues, and ongoing notes, like one-on-one or disciplinary notes.

Time-Off Tracking

Time-off tracking is a time-consuming HR process that’s better left automated. If done manually, what normally happens is an employee sends a time-off request. The manager then checks with the HR department the number of leave days the employee has already accrued. Next, he checks the service level requirement for the leave dates being applied. If work distribution wouldn’t be affected, the manager then approves the leave request and posts notes in the company calendar – an exercise that can become tedious over time, particularly if the manager handles a large team of employees.

TribeHR comes pre-built with common leave policies that you can implement right out of the box or customize according to your HR protocols. Used and available time-offs are then automatically tracked based on the specified accrual parameters and carryover policies. Employee requests and manager responses are logged. To better manage workload and service level requirements, TribeHR’s time-off tracking system integrates with the company calendar. Accruals and usage tracking make running payroll reports easier.

Integrations

TribeHR supports software integration and works with apps like HipChat, Facebook, LinkedIn, NetSuite, Paychex (US only), ADP (US only), Salesforce and Google Apps.

Pricing

Starting at a monthly $5 per employee, TribeHR offers three packages: Starter, Group and Team. Starter is a basic social HRIS packed with the essentials, plus a platform for kudos and public recognition to boost employee engagement. Aside from a richer employee development and performance management environment, the Group package includes recruiting tools, an applicant tracking system, skills tracking, and team and individual goals monitoring.

On the upper end of the spectrum is Team that offers enhanced reporting, comprehensive talent management, goals alignment, and LinkedIn and Facebook integrations for social recruitment. Packages can also be customized according to a company’s specific HR requirements.

Bottom Line

  • Unified social HR suite that lets HR administrators focus on the more value-adding aspects of their roles
  • Comes with a powerful applicant tracking tool that streamlines the hiring process
  • Easy to use, thanks to HR features (e.g., talent management, applicant tracking and core HRIS functions) that are seamlessly linked together
  • Intuitive interface with clear paths and workflows
  • Empowers employees through a self-serve system and kudos tools that allow them to recognize peers

TribeHR is not the business!

06/10/2016

When I started at my position at Taulia, our company was already using TribeHR and I never really understood why we chose TribeHR to work with in the first place. For the amount we were paying we were definitely not getting the value we could out of the product. We used it for Time off, performance reviews, and kudos. The system looks very intuitive - with large green buttons and easy interface but it was not a tool to actually gain any value from. For example none of our employees used TribeHR or logged into Tribhr unless they had to - no one ever used it to look up other employees or as a directory. Another area TribeHR fell short is the reporting - they had some report templates, but this was not enough to export the information you needed. Time off requests would export the days they were requested rather than the days that they are actually taken off, so it became double the work to sort through and modify the file before inputting time off requests for payroll. This was a huge waste of time. Performance review process through TribeHR was very clunky and not scalable. The only positive that we miss from TribeHR is the kudos feature. All of our employees actually loved this feature alot and used it very regularly. This is something we have not found in other HRIS tools that we have researched. We ultimately switched HRIS systems from Tribehr because we were "Too big" for Tribehr. Anything over 100 employees was too high for TribeHR.

Slow, not well thought out.

22/01/2016

Pros

Lots of interesting features but unfortunately poorly deployed. As an example you have the ability to track and manage the vacation schedule for your team, but are unable to access a view that shows you the vacation schedule for anyone outside of your team. Not very useful if you work in a company where vacations in sister departments affect your workflow in any way. Good thing that never happens.

Cons

I love the way the system will log you off in the background, and only notify you once you hit the 'save' button, this process will in turn lock you out of the form you just spent the last hr commenting in. This way not only do you not have your data saved, but the process also ensures that you will not be able to copy and paste to any other application in case you might want to save all of that time you just spent.

Be prepared to spend a lot of time waiting for this system to do 'anything'. Watching the progress bar in the browsers tab will be a key skill for your employees to be trained on.

So all in all I find it easy to use with just one thing I felt was missing. When I archive a CV I would like to see the option to archive to reuse later or archive in the sense of delete for ever and bye bye.

A Fairly Good Product

Pros

Time tracking, resources, PTO booking and nice little things like sending accolades ("Kudos") to co-workers is really easy and centralized.

Cons

Our company doesn't take advantage of everything the product has to offer, so I don't know how well I can speak to this, but goal tracking for individuals and teams doesn't seem very robust.

Great customizable HR product for small businesses

22/08/2014

Pros

The product provided us with a great portal to manage all of our company's events, as well as an easy-to-use interface (very important) to manage our hiring process. It was really easy to integrate on our company website. We really enjoyed the design and employee profiles as well. The TribeHR Account Managers were very helpful and offered to train us on the product's features. It was rather self-explanatory, so there was no need, but we appreciated it anyway!

Cons

The Goal Review process wasn't fully functional at the time and did not meet all our needs. There were some kinks with the hiring feature as well.
