GoCo: Best for onboarding
GoCo is an all-in-one HRIS that follows a modular pricing model. All users start with access to its onboarding, employee self-service, and document management modules. However, similar to TriNet Zenefits and BambooHR, they must pay extra for embedded payroll, benefits administration, HR workflows, time tracking, and HR advisory support.
Despite this, GoCo’s onboarding features come standard — unlike BambooHR Essentials — and are particularly advanced. Companies can send onboarding paperwork to new employees to complete before their first day so that managers can focus more on training than administrative work their first week.
GoCo’s onboarding module also includes customizable offer letters, I-9 and W-4 compliance checks, and task lists. For more granular control, companies can add GoCo’s workflow automation to craft preboarding workflows for new hires based on roles, departments, or needed equipment. This allows for collaboration from multiple stakeholders, such as the IT department or executive management.
Employees can even self-enroll in benefits during onboarding if companies add on GoCo’s benefits module. And, unlike other HRIS on this list, GoCo offers workflows to accommodate I-9 Section 2 verification, even for out-of-state remote employees, in accordance with USCIS regulations. Thus, GoCo is suited for employers with distributed teams, reducing onboarding compliance risks.
