What is most valuable?

* We can easily store all the information about an employee in one place * It is easy to change and update it. * I briefly used a different system, and it was impossibly difficult to change a simple piece of information such as who someone... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We have become much more thorough about keeping documents and paperwork properly, and ensuring we have the correct documents for everyone. It has also allowed us to report on things easily, e.g., sickness records and keeping a track of holiday.

What needs improvement?

* The time off area is still rather clunky. It is not as intuitive as other sections. * People generally need to be shown how to use it. I don’t have the flexibility to handle sickness in different ways, and the number it shows for annual... more»

What is most valuable?

I really value the onboarding and offboarding checklists. This once was a painful paper process that relied on memory or making many calendar reminders for each new starter. Now, it’s all automated and automatically assigned to the right... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It automates a lot of manual processes that we had and also automates communication between HR and people managers. We are able to communicate new starters and leavers to payroll with all their information automatically and to remind managers... more»

What needs improvement?

It’s a great product, but it’s not perfect. There are some areas of reporting that could be improved, as well as features and functions of the ATS/recruitment, as this is a newer function in general. But BambooHR are really happy to hear your... more»

Feb 16 2017

What is most valuable?

Customizability: We can create custom tables, drop down lists, and store any information we want that is in text or number format and export it to Excel. This is extremely useful to an organization that is in high growth mode, as anything we... more»

It has given our operations team immense value. The departments most impacted are HR, finance, and IT. All of the employee information is centralized in one space and can be accessed whenever we want it. Team members can create custom reports... more»

What needs improvement?

There is no human capital/workforce planning capabilities at this time. You can keep all of your current employee information, as well as all of your terminated employees. However, where we really need the product to improve is on planning.... more»

Office Manager at a manufacturing company with 51-200 employees
Feb 27 2017

What is most valuable?

Email alerts have been incredibly helpful within the HR organization. We've been able to keep track of our employees’ assets (laptops and other items) using Asset Registration. I also appreciate how professional and organized it is to have a... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Our company has many employees who have temporary contracts and/or work permits. It's made my life much easier having BambooHR email alerts set up to ensure I schedule renewals before the necessary deadlines. We also use email alerts so that... more»

What needs improvement?

As an international company, there are several administrators in different countries making changes to the system and there is no way of knowing who has made a change, which can be frustrating. It would be nice if administrators could access... more»

What is most valuable?

* ATS: Much better than our previous manual system where all candidates applied via email. * Reports: We can pull reports for nearly everything in BambooHR, employee lists, contract dates, etc. * Customization: BambooHR can create custom tabs... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We used to use spreadsheets for everything from tracking contract end dates to time off. This has made everyone's lives easier.

What needs improvement?

* Performance Management: Only 1 reviewer per employee. The performance module only allows 1 reviewer (manager) to review each employee. We typically need to gather feedback from multiple people, so we have to create Google forms to gather... more»

What is BambooHR?

Our applicant tracking system is a surprisingly simple way to reach more qualified candidates and track, share, and evaluate their applicant information. Plus, our ATS module works hand in hand with our HR software, so you can enter data once and you're done.

Collaborators can leave comments, rate candidates, and change applicant statuses—all within the ATS. Permissions let you control what collaborators can view, keeping sensitive information (like desired salary) private. The only hard part will be agreeing on a candidate.

  • Intuitive Interface

    Tech savvy or not, the applicant tracking system is easy to use. Your team will have no problem quickly filtering candidates, rating the best ones with a five-star rating system, and pushing job postings to free job boards and social media outlets.

  •  
  • No Duplicate Entry

    Get new hires’ basic data into your HR software with ease. Simply change a candidate’s status to “hired,” and their information will transfer from the applicant management software into the HR system. It takes less time to process a new employee than it does to say, “you’re hired.”
