Workplace_news.jpg
Modern HR platform and people management disruptor HiBob today announces a partnership with workforce management and shift scheduling platform Deputy. The integration of the two HR software platforms is designed to help companies and their employees save time by eliminating duplicative manual data entry for HR managers and team leaders. Both tools aim to streamline employee administration and provide an easier, more collaborative world at work. 

The product integration synchronizes data from Bob to Deputy, allowing customers to manage their shift employees in Deputy without having to manually input the data. The customer can create, activate, update, and deactivate a shift employee using this integration. The integration eliminates administrative headaches, leaving room for HR and company leaders to allocate more time towards driving an overall positive employee experience. With the continuing challenge of attracting and retaining top talent, this partnership is a strategic complement for Bob customers with shift workers as it increases employee productivity and engagement through quick and easy schedule sharing and streamlined communication.

"With our Deputy partnership, we are pleased to give our customers an enhanced solution for tracking time and attendance for shift work, lifting the administrative burden off of HR professionals. They are relieved of duplicative data entry and can focus their valuable time on retention and hiring, We believe that modern companies are offering more work flexibility than ever before in regard to when you work, how long you work, and much more – making the Deputy partnership a synergetic solution for increased flexibility. Together, we look forward to giving companies and their people a better overall work experience."

- Ronni Zehavi, CEO of HiBob.

Both serving modern, mid-sized, multinational companies, HiBob and Deputy share commitments to increase employee engagement and productivity.  Because of the two companies' dedication to being easy to use, efficient, and streamlined, HiBob and Deputy had many shared clients before the partnership began. The integration allows shared clients to easily sync employee information across the two platforms, while captivating new clients with the appeal of creating seamless HR processes and better employee experience.

"HR has so many challenges to continue to drive value in difficult circumstances - a skills and workforce crisis with a (rightly) ever more demanding employee base.  And who want useful and highly integrated business tools that deliver personalized, relevant information at the right moment. Deputy and HiBob represent this new world of design led apps that employees enjoy."

- David Kelly, General Manager EMEA at Deputy
