Our Recommendation

We’ll recommend Humanagement for businesses with as few as five employees. Humanagement is scalable and will grow with your company. If you currently don’t have an HR department or personnel, Humanagement can fill that gap with easy employee database management, attendance and time-off tracking with easy stats, and KPI management.

We’ll recommend Zenefits for businesses that want to start offering employee benefits, midsize businesses that want multilevel goal-setting and performance management tools, and companies that want transparent and standardized pricing rather than customized packages.
