  • Core HR outperforms recruiting — Users are generally more satisfied with the core HR functionality of HR management suites as opposed to their recruiting and onboarding functionality. The median satisfaction score among the averages for core HR features comes in at 82.5% while that number for recruiting and onboarding features sits at 77%.
  • Not for small business — Only 14% of reviewers of HR management suites on the Grid℠ report using the software at a small business.
