Zoho People Launches – HR Management
Zoho is launching a new application in their business suite of apps today called Zoho People. Zoho People is a HRM – Human Resources Management – app that includes five modules: organization, recruitment, forms, checklist, and self-service. Zoho People will be integrated into the suite of business apps that Zoho provides.
The organization module helps to keep org charts up-to-date, the recruitment module handles the steps from searching an internal resume database through the hiring process.
This module is used to define the structure of your organization including departments, designations/titles along with Org Chart. There is a forms wizard which lets the HR admins create forms for general employee management. The self-service module allows a top-down management of the other modules so that managers and distributed employees can manage the HR process.
I like this for small-to-medium sized businesses. What I’d like to see is management of the public HR site for the company. Add a job board for the company along with resume/application forms. While most large companies will have a system in place already, for a small business HR management sometimes is mismanaged. Zoho is targeting this product towards small companies that are just large enough to have a full-time HR person. Up to ten users is free, and there are pricing plans for more users past the ten.
