    Have amplified employee onboarding with Sapling

    Reviewed on 2018/02/14

    Pros

    Having a platform for employees to learn about the culture and history of our organization, as well as get to know their colleagues ahead of starting, has greatly improved the onboarding process. We really enjoy the buddy feature, as it has taken our employee buddy program to a new level and increases engagement. Instead of having to use paper forms and checklists for onboarding, and sending back and forth emails, tasks are easily delegated to the appropriate people in my office and there's more transparency in the process.

    Cons

    Sapling has released a plethora of new features in the year that I've been on the platform, many from customer feedback. I'd like to see an Office 365 integration, as there currently is one with G Suite.

    Response from Sapling Technologies

    Thanks for your kind words. The team here at Sapling is dedicated to helping new hires feel right at home and get to know their colleagues even before their first day. It's great to hear that UCSF has found success using the buddy feature. Buddy programs are a great way to kick-start the process of connecting with your new hire and making them feel welcomed.

    Please keep the feedback coming and we're excited about the partnership we've created to help you do your best work!

    Onboarding and offboarding has been enhanced in both companies I've implemented Sapling. The integrations have saved not only the People/HR team time, but other teams too!

    Pros

    I've implemented Sapling twice and found it easy to use and with a good CS rep, it'll go smoothly and your questions will be answered quickly. Once everything is set up, it's super easy to use.

    Cons

    There are still some functions that aren't that great; ie. start date change, but Sapling is working on it.

    So far so good. I haven't heard any complaints and it gets the job done. I don't know what the price is, but it seems more cost-effective than others for what we use it for.

    Pros

    It has been easy to use out of the box. The time management piece is simplistic. The historical export of data from the previous provider seems to be working.

    The company page also seems inviting for new employees, it is all branded well.

    Cons

    The one thing I wish it had was a google calendar integration that allows you to add it to your own calendar and the company calendar after PTO has been approved. I feel like we had this from Zenefits, and it is a real pain to deal with.

    The UI seems a bit dated.

    A SOLUTION FOR ACCURATE HRIS DATA TRACKING

    Reviewed on 2019/07/24

    Pros

    Sapling provides a good interactive experience that eliminates duplicate efforts while attempting to accurately track important data for both the employee and management perspective.

    Cons

    In getting up and running, the directive on how to load historical data from the employee perspective was vague.

    I have been using it for a while and so far it does a good job of an HR tool, I am overall happy with it.

    Pros

    Employee profile is really detailed and I can add a lot of fields. It's easy to use with simple navigation.

    Document management is a great feature to get me onboard and keep track of my documents.

    Cons

    Doesn't really useful after I get to know more about my company and other colleagues. I only update my profile once or twice ever.

    Doesn't really good at task management, since there are other better tools for that.
