BambooHR is cloud-based HR software that can be used for employee performance management. It’s not traditional employee monitoring software, but rather a comprehensive HR solution with various features to help small businesses hire and onboard employees, manage employee performance, track employee hours, administer employee benefits and run payroll. BambooHR has two paid plans (Essentials and Advantage), which both offer a seven-day free trial and no cancellation fees, that are charged on a per-employee basis with month-to-month agreements. There are add-on capabilities for payroll (with payroll permissions), time tracking (with group settings), performance management, and employee benefits administration. We like that the platform simplifies each of these processes, such as permitting users to add URLs to benefit plans, and accessing e-signatures and automated email notifications during benefits enrollment.
BambooHR’s software is intuitive and easy to use across desktop and mobile devices. Employees can access self-service capabilities with the mobile app, such as managing their time off, selecting and managing their employee benefits, completing on-the-go performance assessments, viewing company calendars, and accessing employee directories and organization charts with full reporting lines. Managers can access a variety of mobile functions as well, such as performance assessments, training management and approvals. For added security when using the platform, BambooHR offers two-step login authentication as well. If you have questions or issues with the software, you can easily connect with a support representative by phone, email or web chat.
