I love the easy usage, and that the layout of the client is easy to navigate in. Also, they have great rewards on offer.

Cons

Some issues with picking what type of leave I put in, but that might have been fixed.

Game Changer for Small & Medium Businesses

I saved so much money not needing to do up employment contracts, and all the time I save as a small business owner is invaluable!

Pros

In small & medium businesses the likelihood of affording a full time HR Manager is slim to none! But with Employement Hero one is barely needed! I love the employee engagement surveys, the reminders when someone reaches probation end, the simple onboarding.... no paper forms, no tax dec forms!! Not to mention the awesome benefits and discounts my team and I receive!

Cons

It’s really only the limitation on a seamless approach to choosing a superfund that lets it down a little, but against all other things that it saves you time on, no big deal!

Employment Hero manages your HR Admin right out of the box

Employment Hero has been exactly what we were after, and there are still so many more feature we have not had time ti implement as yet. EH is exactly what businesses need.

Pros

Easy setup
Induction management
New Employee Setup

Cons

No ability to upload minor changes to docs without releasing a whole new version to all
Would love to see an equipment signout section

Excellent Program

Timesheets are all cloud based and streamlined, no more paper. The review section is going to be great for us once implemented Having all of our policies in 1 place and accessible by all from anywhere.

Pros

It is user friendly and makes gives me more time top focus on other objectives. Our workforce is spread out across Victoria so it makes it easier to keep in contact with everyone.

Cons

It would be great if we could have our staff be able to submit claims and reimbursements when submitting their timesheets.
Also the app needs a little more work. ie: Can't amend a timesheet on the app and would be great if we could send a note out to everyone or specific staff using only the app.

EH platform made HR record keeping easy

Pros

Document control of company policies, record keeping of HR documents, leave management etc. Tasks traditionally took many hours are now done paperless and there'll be no argument that the employees have not received documents.

Cons

Understanding 'variables' in the contract template was a little hard because I couldn't find answers by going through 'Help' or manager's manual. I was preparing a contract for one of managers and it kept revering to my position/my name instead of the manager's. Once I figured out why it was doing that, it was all fine but perhaps this needs to be added to user's manual. One thing I'd like to have in EH platform is a new employee to acknowledge that he/she received an induction. I know I can assign induction tasks to my team members but from what I can see, there's no area for the new employee to acknowledge that he/she received the induction. So I'm still getting a paper checklist signed by the new employee and uploading the record.

Easy to Use HR platform

I am happy with the support and their response. Though I always receive a preliminary email saying my request will be escalated to a senior customer support agent. I would prefer receiving my answer straight away. But it is an easy to use and dynamic platform. Love the add ons with the shopping, wellness program and money advice.

Pros

Easy to use, intuitive for all new employees to search for information and lodge requests

Cons

Some features like the reviews could be more organised. When you create some reviews they are neither organised by name nor chronologically. That would be my main and only pain point

The intergration between Employment Hero and Myob can sometimes be problematic.

Employment Hero App

Employment process and document matters are managed online, tasks are allocated and reminders are built in. Its all at your fingertips, easy to use and it’s a real time saver.

Pros

I can deal with leave and other team requests from mobile, with ease, at any time.

Cons

There isn’t anything I don’t like anymore. Recent software upgrades/updates to the mobile app added a function that I could only access from the full site.

A Brilliant Platform

My overall experience with Employment Hero has been fantastic. Previously HR used to be a nightmare, especially in regards to leave. Employment Hero has simplified everything for us and as a manager and a user I am very impressed.

Pros

The software is easy to use and has made my life as a manager much easier, especially in regards to the HR elements.

Whilst it took some time to initially create a profile, I have never looked back!!!!!!!

Cons

Nothing to note as I am happy with everything so far.

Group HR Manager

We feel EH is aligned with our Group core values and assists to develop a strong workplace culture. Its ease of access provides us the ability to communicate with all of our employees at anytime. It really makes Payroll and On-boarding easy.

Pros

We like the On-boarding experience EH provides new employees joining our group. The Employee Self Service enables them 24hr access that notifies manages and payroll of any request and/or changes.

Cons

We are the 4th largest privately owned Automotive Group in Australia and would like to see EH integrate with our DMS and this option isn't currently available.

Great, easy to use

Fantastic platform that has made our lives easier, highly recommended

Pros

Very intuitive and has almost everything in one.
Great platform that I have recommended to others.

Cons

Payroll and time and attendance as a seperate module (while good, adds cost). Would like to see a more involved LMS module as well.

EH HR keeps me organised

Since moving to EH we have improved our on-boarding process, and staff inductions are now more comprehensive and more efficient. The timesheets and Clock me In features allow employees to easily and quickly record their hours in just a couple of clicks, saving time for them, their manager and for payroll.

Pros

Employees are readily and easily accessing their files and up to date HR information directly.

Cons

Some features could be further improved, such as being able to maintain and update documents directly on EH.

Customer review

As a system , I am very happy. The HR platform allows me to keep my policies and procedures in one place, is transparent to all staff and I am comforted to know that it is legally complaint. The payroll system is fantastic. The pay slips are comprehensive, illuminating ambiguity and keeping staff satisfaction high. I have no problem recommending the system to any SME owner who has a desire to govern their business properly.

Pros

Stable platform, it works and is simple for staff to comply with

Cons

The platform represents a new paradigm of online HR processes. Understanding how the system works takes a lot of time and constant revision. Obviously people learn by different styles and methods, but I felt that having a person to talk through important issues like payroll and performance reviews is important. The strategy to have all phone calls a pay only service is myopic. It may be more profitable for EH but it undervalues to importance of the client.
