Keep track of all your employee details, employment contracts and emergency contact details in one place. You can easily add and edit employees and process dismissals.

Each company gets preloaded with the Department of Labour’s leave policies, but you can also create your own and have employees’ leave balances calculated dynamically.

We're doing something special

Making payroll less painful is where it starts, but it’s only the beginning. We believe that employees should have more control and access to their finances – and it starts with their paycheque. 

We’re building the tools we want to have for ourselves: HR admin that’s user-friendly, payroll that’s compliant – but fast – and access to integrated benefits that are typically only available to large corporates.

Running payroll is so quick and easy. I only spend 5 minutes each month processing payslips. It’s definitely one of the apps every business needs. I definitely recommend it!

hellohr is great! Very clean design and super straightforward to use. So much so that some clients could even run their own payroll without compromising our ability to file taxes.
