Requesting and approving vacation requests and sick days. Tracking employee documents. Sharing notes and resources in one centralized place for all employees. By automating the busy work of running a business, we are empowering bosses to focus on what really matters. In addition, our social features, for example, providing a venue for employees to voice their ideas or give and receive kudos, provide a vehicle for increasing morale.
How does it work?
Once a company registers with TribeHR, they are given a URL that leads employees to the system, which they can then log into with their own user ID and password. From there, employees can perform a multitude of tasks that normally clutter inboxes or soak up administrators’ time. (Or, if you’re the administrator, your time.)
Through this feature, employees can select the specific days they would like off, and they are given a space to state their reason. Since TribeHR tracks how many vacation (or sick/personal) days the employee has earned, you are better enabled to determine whether to grant the request. In addition, the manager can see who else is requesting days off so that they can immediately see where they will be shorthanded. TribeHR also categorizes the types of off-time the employees take.
Instead of all gathering at 6 a.m. and reciting a company cheer, what if you had an interface where you could build morale and establish goals without making your employees barf? Through TribeHR, employers can set and track goals, host feedback, and store employee performance reviews, complete with notes, comments and skills assessments. In fact, an employer could actually rank employees by their skill set.
Other Cool Stuff
Rather than a convoluted server with folders and files, employees and managers can share notes of varying privacy through the application. A public feed allows employers to post employee kudos, so that everyone can see that Jane Doe exceeded sales goals for the month a week in advance. As earlier mentioned, one could use TribeHR as a central staging point for necessary employee documents and resources, and there is an area to post in-house job openings.
I don't recommend TribeHR, unless it would change.
The security most be good, it's better TribeHR use worksheet. I don't really have good opinion on TribeHR.
It's not customizing, it has often bugs, the customer service is bag. I asked to add some features and they told me, we put your request on our request list and it may be improve next update. But it had no update since 5 years!
It is a very inexpensive and basic program. It's a step up from email resume collection, but that's about it. It is ok for the short term and if the company is very small, but a larger or growing company would be better off going with a software that offers more features.
Before switching to TribeHR, applicants had been applying to job postings through email, so TribeHR was a step up from that as candidates could be sorted into the position they are applying for.
No useful tools such as resume parsing, keyword search, filtering, ability to have candidates answer some basic prescreening questions during the application process. It can be very tedious having to wade through all of the resumes looking for something specific (i.e. a candidate who is local to the job location). What is also difficult is sharing resumes with hiring managers as the hiring manager would need to have an TribeHR account in order to view them. Also, if you closed a job posting it would be more difficult to share past applicants with hiring managers as you could not send them as a group, only one at a time.
TribeHR has done a great job of incorporating what HR, managers and employees need to do their jobs effectively. It is quick, smart and simple. It has everything you need as a manager without having to ask HR for help in getting the info. It really puts the information in the employee's and manager's hands eliminating administrative support often required by HR. It is also easy to navigate making for a great user experience.
TribeHR has a boat-load of capabilities and features that are rarely found in one system. It is the first system that I've seen that attempts to incorporate every aspect of Human Resources it can. Doesn't have a feature you're looking for? The TribeHR support team is fabulous for responding to anything from quick bug fixes and little modifications to larger releases and features.
One System, lots of tools and features. Great support team. Still incorporating customer feedback and feature requests. Easy to use making the launch and training a cinch!
A few bugs here and there but the support team is always great in responding. Some features are still being developed so they may lack the structure or capabilities you are used to seeing from larger exclusive tools.
Everything is stored electronically. I can access HR resources from anywhere.
It's a simple portal I can sign on and review my PTO balance or other benefits.
My work uses it for electronic annual reviews so it's nice to have a history of them year after year immediately accessible.
The Resources thing is kind of a joke. It's basically setup as a network drive on a portal... maybe that's simply what our admin did though ;(
Employee reviews are confusing. It's broken down into multiple categories by Tribe somehow so there are parts we have to know to skip (because we don't use them, etc). I'd rather they just go back to paper and the scan them and upload pdfs.
The product provided us with a great portal to manage all of our company's events, as well as an easy-to-use interface (very important) to manage our hiring process. It was really easy to integrate on our company website. We really enjoyed the design and employee profiles as well.
The TribeHR Account Managers were very helpful and offered to train us on the product's features. It was rather self-explanatory, so there was no need, but we appreciated it anyway!
The Goal Review process wasn't fully functional at the time and did not meet all our needs. There were some kinks with the hiring feature as well.
Starting at $5 per employee per month

TribeHR is a social HR (human resources) platform whose unified HR suite allows HR professionals to concentrate on the more value-adding aspects of their jobs and less on repetitive administrative functions such as time-off tracking, updating of employee records, and others. It aims to make HR management more engaging for employees, managers and HR professionals through wizards, intuitive workflows, profiles and social recognition.
TribeHR reduces menial tasks for HR officers and empowers individual employees by allowing them to maintain an updated record on their own. It fosters an enjoyable work environment through its kudos tools that recognize jobs well done, and bring assistance, as well as fun things, to people’s attention. Created for small businesses to large enterprises, some of TribeHR’s main features are employee profile with self-serve capabilities, kudos that can be tied to performance reviews, applicant tracking, performance management and time-off tracking.
TribeHR’s core HRIS (human resource information management) features consist of a searchable company directory, employee self-service, personalized employee profiles, dynamic organizational chart, employee history timeline, employee and resource document storage, compensation tracking, corporate calendar, employee time-off tracking, HRIS reports and multi-location and currency support tracking. On the talent management side, functionalities it supports include 360 feedback, peer and public recognition, skills tracking, goal management, reviews, and alignment of employee goals with the company’s values and culture.
For recruiting, it’s equipped with an applicant tracking system, social network integration, resume collection, job board, hiring teams and review notes. TribeHR also has an iOS app, which offers employee self-service, time-off management, employee directory and kudos – a feature available to all customers regardless of the package they’re subscribed to.
TribeHR has three user types: employees, managers and administrators. Employees are the most basic users and are provided with their own login credentials so they can update their own records through TribeHR’s employee self-serve system. Employees can only access their own data, including data other users share with them. Managers can access their own data plus those of employees who directly report to them. Administrators, on the other hand, can see everything, in addition to configuring the company’s domain settings and adding company holidays.
If you’re an employee and you need to update your data (e.g., you just moved to a new address), once logged in to TribeHR, point to your name at the top of the page and click My Employee File. When you click on the Edit Profile link, you’re ready to update your account details, employee details, job details, even your profile picture. An employee profile includes basic data, complete history, related documents and vacation tracking information, recent kudos, active goals, employee skills, and notes.
Various studies show that employees are motivated by praise, and not so much by money, which goes to show that frequent employee recognition is a surefire way to motivate and keep employees engaged. TribeHR’s peer and public recognition feature helps cultivate a high-performance culture and reinforce positive behavior in the workplace. To encourage peer recognition, the green Kudos button is visibly displayed on the right hand side of pretty much every TribeHR page, which makes it easy for employees to publicly recognize their colleagues and for managers to send their team members congratulatory messages.
All commendations are stored in the employee’s record and prominently shown on the dashboard. Managers can even automatically tie them to employee performance reviews. Plus, employees have the option to post recently received recognitions to their Facebook pages.
TribeHR’s applicant tracking feature is designed to help HR administrators organize their hiring process. It starts with a customizable job board to match your company’s branding and website. Applications can be accepted via email, or through the applicants’ LinkedIn and Facebook profiles. TribeHR creates a file for each applicant, which are then kept in a single location for easy access and collaboration.
Whether public or internal, for each posted position, the hiring team is selected and assigned. And for every application received, the hiring team is automatically notified based on pre-defined preferences. Depending on your hiring protocols, applicants can first be screened by reviewers before they move on to the hiring team. All interviewer notes, ratings and comments are kept in one place. Once hired, an applicant’s data, including resumes and cover letters, are automatically transferred to the TribeHR employee file.
TribeHR provides three tools to track and manage employee performance: goals, kudos and skills. The Goals tool allows managers and employees to track goals and objectives on an individual and team level. To add a goal, visit the employee profile and click the Add a New Goal button. The goal should have a title, description, start and due dates. Public goals appear in the company calendar, and employees can opt to keep their goals private or share them with teammates. Goal participants receive the goal on their employee files and see them on their overview pages when logged in. Once the goal is complete, they receive a news item on their overview page.
Kudos can automatically be tied to period-end performance reviews, and once received, a news item will be published in the company’s overview page for everyone to see. The Skills tool is used by managers to identify certain skills and competencies in individual employees, which are then tracked across the company. The generated matrix report is used to pinpoint areas for employee development. TribeHR gives managers the option to automatically include skills in their review templates. TribeHR also tracks 360 feedback, a system where employees receive anonymous feedback from their colleagues, and ongoing notes, like one-on-one or disciplinary notes.
Time-off tracking is a time-consuming HR process that’s better left automated. If done manually, what normally happens is an employee sends a time-off request. The manager then checks with the HR department the number of leave days the employee has already accrued. Next, he checks the service level requirement for the leave dates being applied. If work distribution wouldn’t be affected, the manager then approves the leave request and posts notes in the company calendar – an exercise that can become tedious over time, particularly if the manager handles a large team of employees.
TribeHR comes pre-built with common leave policies that you can implement right out of the box or customize according to your HR protocols. Used and available time-offs are then automatically tracked based on the specified accrual parameters and carryover policies. Employee requests and manager responses are logged. To better manage workload and service level requirements, TribeHR’s time-off tracking system integrates with the company calendar. Accruals and usage tracking make running payroll reports easier.
TribeHR supports software integration and works with apps like [HipChat] (http://www.getapp.com/hipchat-application), Facebook, LinkedIn, NetSuite, Paychex (US only), ADP (US only), [Salesforce] (http://www.getapp.com/salesforce-application) and Google Apps.
Starting at a monthly $5 per employee, TribeHR offers three packages: Starter, Group and Team. Starter is a basic social HRIS packed with the essentials, plus a platform for kudos and public recognition to boost employee engagement. Aside from a richer employee development and performance management environment, the Group package includes recruiting tools, an applicant tracking system, skills tracking, and team and individual goals monitoring.
On the upper end of the spectrum is Team that offers enhanced reporting, comprehensive talent management, goals alignment, and LinkedIn and Facebook integrations for social recruitment. Packages can also be customized according to a company’s specific HR requirements.
