Reporting and analytics features to help businesses gain insight into employee data

Employment Hero is a cloud-based HR and payroll software known for providing basic reporting and analytics features to help businesses gain insights into their HR and employee data. The software's people analytics platform collects and analyses data on employee demographics, performance, training, and more to generate reports and dashboards, aiding in decision-making related to employee engagement, retention, and productivity.

The platform offers various features beyond data analytics, such as onboarding and employee data management, attendance and leave management, payroll and benefits administration, performance management and feedback, employee self-service and communication, and integrations with other tools.

The pricing for the HR module includes four tiers: Hiring Essentials (free), HR Standard ($8 per employee per month), HR Premium ($11 per employee per month), and HR Platinum ($15 per employee per month). The Payroll module comes in two options: Payroll Standard ($5 per employee per month) and Payroll Premium ($7 per employee per month). Notably, people analytics is part of the reporting mechanism, and additional software is needed for in-depth analytics.
