Run payroll directly in Humi

While FolksHR offers integrations with payroll software, Humi already has a built-in solution that’s designed for the Canadian market and makes it easy to manage your payroll directly from your HRIS. Rest easy knowing that you can make edits on the platform and that our tax engine is built for compliance with Canadian regulations. Offer digital paystubs to your employees, automatically file CRA remittances, and know that T4s and ROEs are taken care of.

Take your recruiting efforts even further

FolksHR offers a simple ATS, but Humi has a robust recruiting module to handle all of your hiring needs. Streamline the whole recruiting process using auto-archiving job posting questions and automated emails. Close communication gaps within your hiring process by creating hiring teams with custom access levels and use anonymous responses within interview templates until the whole team has submitted their candidate feedback to reduce bias. Once you’ve found the perfect candidate, send a digital offer letter directly from the platform and collect legally-binding eSignatures.

An all-in-one Canadian software for Canadian businesses

Although FolksHR is great for Quebec-based businesses because of their company roots and location, Humi offers Canadian businesses a true all-in-one hub for all of your HR, payroll, insurance, and benefits needs. Securely store all of your sensitive employee data in Canada and never miss a beat on Canadian-specific people operation needs.

Controlled access based on user roles and permissions

Give the right people access to the right information. With roles and permissions, you can manage who sees what information so that sensitive data is shown only to those who need it. New employees will love the ability to see high-level info about your whole team at a glance so that they can put names to faces on day one.

Time Off
Spend less time on time off.

Tracking vacation or sick days doesn’t have to be a messy, disorganized, paper-based process. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was one system where employees could quickly request time off? With Humi, you can make requesting time off simple (with no approval required) or support a complex approval structure with multiple stakeholders.

Digitally onboard new hires in minutes

Have you ever felt disorganized on an employee's first day? We did. That's why we built employee onboarding tasks to streamline one of the most important stages in the employee lifecycle, while creating transparency and accountability because all the people involved in the process can see exactly what needs to be done and when.

Develop your employees with a fraction of the effort.

Most often, performance reviews are an uncomfortable process without clear expectations laid out from the start, which makes assessment of performance tricky. With Humi, all aspects of performance management are beautifully integrated, from goals, to reviews, to feedback and more.

Explore Performance
Turn employee data into actionable insights.

It's nice to put zero work in and get something great out. That's what Humi's default HR reporting provides -- beautiful charts that give you key insights into things like headcount history, additions, and terminations. Every chart can be filterable by date, department, and more. Export any chart to raw CSV data in a single click.

Explore Reporting
Find and recruit top talent.

These days, there are about a hundred ways to post jobs and track applicants. This makes working on the hiring team hard, and can even make your company look disorganized. Humi unifies all applicant tracking: create your job board, add hiring managers right from the Humi, share posts to LinkedIn and Indeed, and sleep easy knowing your recruiting is under control.

Training Tracker
Track employee training, easily.

Employee training tracking isn’t fun – it’s another spreadsheet, a bunch of calendar reminders, and missing reports. But it's still important. That's why we built Employee Training Tracker. Track and store employee training information, all while keeping employees accountable to complete the training.

Explore Training Tracker
Asset Tracker
Stay on top of your company assets.

Track company computers, keycards, phones, and more, all side by side with the rest of your HR data. With Asset Tracker, you can assign company assets to employee profiles and keep the data next to other important employee information.
