With hundreds of human resources (HR) systems to choose from, it can be a daunting task to find one that’s right for you and your business—especially in a software market that ranges so wildly in functionality.
Reviewing the systems others use most can be a great place to start your search. To that end, we’ve ranked HR software products by overall popularity. This will allow buyers to see which are the most popular HR software solutions across a range of business models and sizes.
Here are our results, with a focus on the most popular HR software products that offer either core HR or recruiting functionality:
To arrive at the rankings above, we analyzed vendors according to the following metrics:
Adoption rate: This factor reflects the number of people using the product on at least a weekly basis. We conducted an original survey of software users to gather this data. We weighted user adoption level the most in calculating overall scores for products.
Online searches for brand: This factor reflects the number of times the product name and related phrases are searched in Google per month. We weighted this factor more than social followers, but less than user adoption.
Social followers: This factor reflects the number of people who’ve “liked” or “followed” the accounts of the vendor on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook. We weighted this factor significantly less than the other two factors.
Below are charts showing the individual rankings for user adoption, search traffic and social media followers. By combining all these sources of information into a single score, we reveal two things:
- Which vendors have garnered the most users
- How much customer loyalty and overall consumer interest these vendors have inspired
