Have used the software for several years and implemented job desc., perf. mgmt. & succ. plnng.

The on-line software is easy to use takes a lot of the pain out of the performance review process after the initial set-up and training is done throughout the organization on how to use the system. The tie in between the job description and the performance management system is excellent and forces the reviewer to focus on the essential functions of the job and rate performance on those factors. The competencies to do the job are also reviewed and if there is a gap between the competency necessary versus what is exhibited this can be used as a development opportunity. If used properly HR Toolbench makes performance management an ongoing process as opposed to a once a year ordeal.

Best Talent Management Software on the market

Having worked in Human Resources for 25 years, I have had the opportunity to use and/or evaluate a great number of "talent management" systems. Unfortunately, the vast majority of systems are one-dimensional; focusing on recruiting, job descriptions, performance reviews, IDP's and/or succession plans. Rarely does an individual system capture multiple areas well and I have not found any that do it as well as HRToolbench. Most "talent management" systems are designed and marketed by software companies looking to get into this growing space. These systems are often flashy, look great, and their sales teams do a nice job showcasing the product and how to navigate within their system. However, a quick look under the hood and you quickly see that these systems were designed by "techies" as plug-and-play systems that anyone can use. HRToolbench is different. It was written by HR professionals for HR professionals. The system is module-based (e.g., recruiting, job descriptions, performance, compensation and succession planning) making a phased implementation simple and easy to understand. Furthermore, the way in which information is shared between modules (i.e., job descriptions to performance forms, performance forms to compensation analytics, etc.) as well as how information is shared between users, make this one of the most powerful tools on the market. It took me approximately 6 months to get all of our job descriptions approximately 100 in total) built and a year to get a complete performance cycle under our belt. But now that we have solid data in the system, the analytics and reports that I am able to run are simply amazing. Lastly, I cannot say enough good things about the level of customer support demonstrated by the team. Their responsiveness and their willingness to assist is top notch.

Pros

Comprehensive & robust, great customer service, powerful analytics and great overall value.

Bob Levy has been outstanding in offering support and guidance on the operation of this software.

We have found the compensation module the most useful. The point factor system for classification is easy to use and understand. The Job Description functions are sometimes cumbersome, and require manual input, when it would be great to clone a detail job desc to a func job desc. It would also be helpful to have a way to update salaries from a spreadsheet instead of having to go into each individual record.

HRToolbench does in fact provide the options of (1) manual employee data management, or (2) automated electronic file transfer. During the client's original configuration the then HR Director opted to implement the manual process. The Reviewer was unaware of the automated data transfer option.

We use the Performance Management System of HRToolbench.

Pros: We really like the job description function in HR Toolbench. In a regulated environment, it is really useful to be able to access an employee's job description upon request. The job description is the foundation of the entire performance management system. Cons: We have employees and managers (usually the tech oriented employees) who really like using a cloud based electronic performance management system. We also have managers and supervisors who do not the performance management component saying it is too cumbersome to work with and prefer the paper based performance reviews. I think the more we use the system, they will get used to it. One item I am not happy with on the performance review side is the inability to change the review once someone has begun entering information into the review. We have promotions that happen throughout the year (like most companies), so if the manager has started working on an employee's review and then this employee is promoted to a new position, the performance review is still pointing to the old job description. And, if the manager began working on the promoted employee's review when he/she was in the old position, we can't change it internally so that the new job description and new review are in alignment. We usually have to contact Bob to do this for us. This is an inconvenience for us and for Bob (who also needs to contact the programmer on his end). Overall, HRToolbench is a good system for us!!! And, a big piece of this is the awesome customer service. Whenever I have an issue, Bob is so responsive. Thank you Bob Levy!!

HRToolbench personalizes performance forms for every employee based on information pulled from an employee¿s current job description. When an employee is assigned to a new job midway through a review period, the employee's supervisor can create a new performance form quickly and easily and the system personalizes the form by pulling content from the employee¿s new job. The process is designed to enable the existing performance form to be completed reflecting the employee¿s performance prior to the job change, and at the same time a new performance form is created aligned with the employee¿s new job. The Reviewer was not fully aware of the system¿s capabilities.

A Very Good and Cost-Effective Solution

Pros

HRTooblench is thoughtfully designed with an understanding of - and appropriate focus on - the structural tools we need to develop and manage high-performance talent. It is obviously built by people with a background in HR knowledge and expertise.

Cons

It would be nice to have more flexibility in allowing users to create or design their own reports or query underlying data with something like SQL.
