What's Inside

Bob Review

Bob, or HiBob, is a really interesting new entrant to this market (that already has customers like Monday.com and eToro). Their philosophy is to put the employee first, and you can see that in how easy the product is to use. Also, in various ways, this solution engages employees to better understand and cultivate culture. This is a great fit for forward-thinking HR departments that need tools like onboarding, time-tracking, payroll reports, time-off management, surveys, benefits, and much more.
