Choosing the best employee management software for your business is a big decision. After all, it’s where you will track and monitor all of your business’s human resources.

Employee management software can help you with HR tasks such as payroll, benefits, hiring, onboarding and offboarding, talent acquisition, training, performance review and more.

Here are some questions to ask before choosing a tool:

What does your HR team need?

What core HR functions do you want to automate? For example, do you want to track employees’ time off or run reports on their attendance?

What other features would be nice to have? For instance, do you want your employee management system to connect to other tools such as applicant tracking systems or payroll software?

Do any existing programs need to connect with the new one? If so, make sure the platforms have integrations or application programming interfaces (APIs).
