If your human resources department still relies on manual payroll, paper employment applications, and disparate spreadsheets, then it’s time you upgraded to HR software. From sourcing, recruiting, and payroll, to performance management, employee training, and employee engagement, HR software offers a system for the entire hiring and managing process. The market’s many specialized options provide a solution for nearly every pain point an HR department experiences.

However, that’s exactly what makes finding and choosing the right HR software for your business so complex. Though there are large software suites that offer all the functions above, not all companies need (or want) a system that does it all. Your businesses may just need a single product for one specific task – like payroll, for example.

To help you navigate the market, we’ve done the research for you and neatly summarized it in the decision tree below.
