As the IT Glue™ team continues to rapidly grow, we have been on the hunt for an awesome solution to assist us in our human resources (HR) management process. BambooHR™ provides an amazing tool that allows for us to seamlessly manage recruitment, onboarding on new staff, leave, benefits, payroll, and employee details all in one handy and simple tool.

User friendly, people friendly 

BambooHR allows managers and staff to easily track important information. This is great, especially in any growing business where it gets increasingly difficult to manage the movement and specific details for all your staff. In BambooHR, all of the information is well laid out, secure, and easy to access. This helps cut down the time spent by managers and HR on tasks such as leave requests, staff benefits, recruitment, and onboarding of new staff.

Here’s what you can do in BambooHR:

  • Track time off, training and benefits
  • Create customize fields, tables and tabs
  • Create user groups
  • Integrate with other services like applicant tracking and payroll

With BambooHR, everything is digital and accessible for your staff at any given point in time.

BambooHR does it right from the start

From the start, the implementation of BambooHR has been simple. They make sure that they are available to provide a great experience with the software at all times. The customer support team goes out of their way to help us 24/7 — by phone or by email.

“The support at BambooHR is outstanding! The personal contact with the BambooHR team has been extraordinary, right from the start. Feeling valued after purchasing is a huge thing in the SaaS industry and BambooHR did a fantastic job of this. Our implementation specialist went over and above to make sure the system was customized exactly how we liked it, for optimal utilization by the #GlueCrew. The transition to BambooHR (from our complicated spreadsheet system) was extremely simple.”

Allison Hicks, HR Manager at IT Glue

Here at IT Glue, we have also found that the addition of the Applicant Tracking System (ATS) and new hire packets has made it easy to establish a hiring process that is transparent for everyone who is involved. Email alerts keep the HR team and hiring manager updated on any incoming resumes and these can then be quickly assessed and graded within BambooHR to streamline the recruitment process. There is no going back and forth between HR and the hiring manager as to the status of applications — all of the work is done in BambooHR!

Once someone is hired, the process of ensuring that they are set up with the right tools and applications is all done in BambooHR. There are no surprises on day one for the IT department about incoming new hires, since BambooHR keeps everyone informed and ready. Also, as new employees come to the end of their probation period, managers get notified about the need for review and that relevant benefits kick in.

The leave process also becomes easy to manage as your team members can easily submit requests for time off. The management team also loves the feature which allows them to have a quick overview of who is off at any give time. With the BambooHR software, life at IT Glue has become more transparent for everyone!
