Staff Squared is a web-based onboarding, personnel tracking, absence management and performance appraisal platform geared towards small businesses. It helps manage employee absences by allowing organizations to track holiday balances, accrual, carry-over and sick leave. Rule setting, calendar integration and daily summary emails ensure that human resources (HR) are on board with who will and who won’t be in the office that day.
Employees are invited in Staff Squared to fill out their own profiles and request time off. From there, HR users sort the staff directory by office or custom group, or use the search functionality to find the staff information they need. Note-taking and document storage is also available. Organizations also define company objectives and goals for their staff in Staff Squared to measure performance. Dedicated mobile apps for iOS and Android devices are available for download so users continue to use Staff Squared away from the office.

Easy to use, great customer service and constantly adding new features.
Their mobile apps could be improved, they're quite basic right now.
Make sure you take the time to setup your account properly before you invite your team.

The most important features for us as a small business are:
- holiday planning, booking and the shared calendar
- sickness record and bradford factor score
We like that the product is focussed to suit the needs of a small/medium business and so it isn't like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut. You're only paying for what you really need. Importantly, the support service is top notch and personable - perfectly suited to the needs of SMEs
I'd like to see more dynamic reporting features or even just a wider choice of reports. I'm assured that this is coming. However, it's worth noting that if you can't access a specific type of report you want then you can contact support and they'll run the report for you.
It goes without saying that Staff Squared resolves a lot of HR admin pain so it's already worth every penny you invest in it. But, for us, it's more than just HR software....it's a system that helps us to manage our team to efficiently achieve our business objectives.

Mobile app and interactive calendar are life savers. The support is also incredible
It doesn't currently provide timesheet functionality but that's due in the next few weeks.
Check to ensure that the customer service is good both pre AND post sale!
Patricia from Simply Tarot
It makes total sense using this software for HR management since we are on computers almost constantly. Staff Squared keeps management and admin tasks focused, information easy to find and also encourages staff to keep on top of their objectives too! Haven't come across any problems as yet but since the staff are so supportive maybe that's why.
It's really decently priced too!
Would definitely recommend.

If the other companies I worked with were anything near as professional and client focused as Staff Squared my job would be a lot easier!
At the moment I have no negative feedback.
I have been using Staff Squared for 4 months now and I can honestly say that it is a very simple app to use and above all affordable. It has cut the time I spend on admin in half and made staff management so much easier
Easy to use, flexible, a lot of useful features including holiday tracking, unlimited document storage, and the calendar integration with our existing calendars is great.
None that I can think of, they're continuously adding new features...

If you are a SME like us you will find Staff Squared beneficial in looking after your staff and keeping accurate and up to date records
I had been searching for HR software for some time and came across Staff Squared. It's an intuitive self service app that has made everyday HR so much easier and freed up time in my day for other Admin duties. There are no set up fees or long term contracts just a monthly subscription, so easy to set up and use.
I don't have anything negative to say about Staff Squared. All questions are quickly answered by their support team

If you want to keep all of your staff information in one place and be able to review it whether in or out of the office, Staff Squared does just that.
We have been using Staff Squared for 2 months now and cannot believe how it has simplified managing our staff. It is reasonably priced, easy to set up and is simple to use, even for someone like me with little or no HR knowledge.
At the present time I don't have any negative feedback about Staff Squared.
