CiviHR is built on top of CiviCRM, and as such the launch version (released in Sept 2016) borrowed a degree of the CRM’s workflow and interface. However, as part of further developing and improving on the initial CiviHR product we’ve made lots of little changes to the look and feel that will add up to make a big impact on our user’s experience. 

 

User experience design is important in any modern software application. It covers everything from the way that users are able to navigate through the application itself, to the design and layout that they see on their...

Recording details of staff contracts and then keeping them updated for any changes to job titles, pay, hours, and other job history essentials is vital not only for legal reasons but also for the proper functioning of your organisation. With participation from our pilot clients, we have developed a new and improved version of our Job Contracts module that should make this process a lot easier.

Often with paper records or spreadsheets, job contract information ends up split across multiple documents. Working out the current terms, or reviewing past changes can result...

Our goal has always been for CiviHR to be both affordable in price and comprehensive in features. In pursuit of the latter, our attention is now turning to the planning of the Recruitment module.

We know recruitment is a time consuming, but essential part of the HR process. We want to design set of features that will make an HR manager’s life easier by automating such things as emailing candidates, scheduling interviews, and collaborating internally on the hiring process.

We would love to find out from you what you would need an applicant tracking system to do.

Every few months we organise a Focus Group and invite charities and businesses to come to our offices for a few hours and talk to us about HR. This October 26th we will be hosting a Recruitment Focus Group at the Compucorp offices in Shoreditch.

And so, we are recruiting anyone willing to spare some time to share their own recruitment...

In September, we will be releasing a new version of reports that will completely change the way you see and understand analytics. And we can’t wait to show it to you!

We met with a number of UK charities to discover what kind of reports would make a difference in their work life. And we found a long wishlist, with time, resources, and tools being the main barriers in creating powerful reports.

HR managers were endlessly exporting their data into spreadsheets and spending hours creating the same reports over and over.

So, we sat together and we put our thinking caps on, to think of a flexible and comprehensive solution for our new reports release. Then we thought, why not integrate the pivot tables directly into the application! So that's what we did.

Pivot tables are one of the most powerful and flexible approaches to data processing available. The ability to group and aggregate data on nearly any field is vital...

HR is difficult.  Especially if you’re a non-profit, seeking a system that is both affordable and comprehensive.

Many of you will have heard we are working on a project called CiviHR. This a project to make a great open source HR system for non-profits.

With seed funding from the Zing foundation, CiviHR is a fully featured HR system, based on a core of CiviCRM and Drupal, that will be freely available for non-profit organisations.

In the next few months we will be coming to our first release milestone and so, we wanted to officially unveil to you CiviHR, our new website, and blog series. We hope these will be a portal to share our work, our experiences and our HR insights.

With the input from our Launch Clients and other charities who gave us their time to be a part of this project, we were able to design a solution that accommodates all their requirements. From leave tracking to staff portal, it...
