TribeHR is designed to assist companies with their human resources needs. The application allows the user to automate many human resources related tasks. The user can review records and highlight vital details. TribeHR also includes reminder tools so users are aware of important dates and deadlines. Detailed reports can be generated as well. The user can manage employee vacation time by tracking days earned and days taken. TribeHR also provides tools that allow the user to select, track and approve vacation days and track multiple types of employee leave. Development tools give managers and business owners a place to centralize information and review private and shared goals, performance data and employee skills. Additional features include employee note taking for managers, privacy controls, public kudos posted to the company feed and job posting tools.
TribeHR was designed around the goal of creating a tool that would make human resources more manageable for small businesses. The application was founded by Jesse Rodgers, Joseph Fung and Stephen Heron in Waterloo, Canada. TribeHR was developed in 2009 and launched in public beta in March of 2010.
TribeHR is the full package in one convenient application. Users can manage many of the most important tasks assigned to human resources departments. This makes it a very appealing option for small businesses, which may not have the resources to hire multiple people to handle these tasks. TribeHR can help users oversee vacation time, job openings, employee development and organizational tasks that can save company’s time and money.
TribeHR has a very welcoming appearance that uses dark brown and vibrant green. The white background keeps the interface neat and clean along with bold headers and subtle design elements such as narrow underline bars. User can also upload images to go with employee records. All information is presented in neat, organized columns and rows.
A new user can create a TribeHR account by clicking the green and white “Get Started in Seconds” bar found along the left hand side of the homepage (inside the dark brown box).
