#SHRM19 Interview with BambooHR


Let’s start with a riddle! What does Amanda Brunson (me) and BambooHR have in common? Give up? We love all things panda! I mean, my social media handle is @TheHRPanda after all!! I absolutely love stopping by the BambooHR booth at the 2019 SHRM Annual Conference & Exposition every year because they always have something fun going on! I’ve had my picture taken with a panda! I’ve been flipped upside down (in a photo!) And I’ve gotten panda stickers! As a first time blogger, I had to make sure that I had an opportunity to get a 2019 SHRM Annual Conference & Expo sneak peak for all of you by reaching out to Tyler King, Social Media Manager, for BambooHR; please enjoy!

If someone asked you, “who is BambooHR” what is your 30 second elevator speech response?

BambooHR is all-in-one HR software for small and medium-sized businesses and the people who work in them.

We make it easy to collect, maintain, and analyze your people data, improve the way you hire talent, onboard new employees, manage compensation, and develop your company culture.

BambooHR is designed to set you free to focus on what matters most—your people!

As a panda lover, I am always drawn to the BambooHR booth at conferences to see what photo ops or panda swag might be available. Can you share any insight on any special panda sightings at #SHRM19?

We don’t want to give too much away but let’s just say that you should swing by our booth to find out what HR Super Hero you are. (Pudgy is the model for all the different HR Super Heroes!)  

What sets BambooHR apart from other HR Software organizations in the country?

Besides our love for all things panda, what sets us apart is how much we care about our customers. We want to make sure they have a fantastic experience with our software, and we want to give them tools to help them be strategic partners in their organizations. Too many people when they think of HR, they think of Toby from the Office and everyone hates Toby. We want to make sure our customers feel appreciated every day and have actual data to help their organization make strategic decisions.

Let’s talk more about the benefits of using BambooHR such as people data & analytics, onboarding, compensation, etc.

Here are a few problems that our software solves:

Keeping track of employee records, including contact info, emergency contacts, important compliance documents and more.

Attracting and hiring talent and analyzing the hiring process to improve the overall candidate experience and hire the best talent.

Automating the onboarding process to improve new hires initial experience and improve overall efficiencies. Keeping track of time off, time worked and benefits selected.

Measuring and driving employee satisfaction and performance

Tell me about some of your best success stories with a client.

Wistia Customer Testimonial

Wistia is a video hosting platform for small and medium-sized businesses with the company mission to make business more human. In order to provide a more human experience for its own people, Wistia uses BambooHR.

The Challenge

With more than 90 employees and continued growth on the horizon, Wistia’s People Team knew the organization’s spreadsheets and filing cabinets weren’t going to cut it for much longer. The lack of organization made it so tasks like tracking down employee data, pulling reports, and coordinating onboarding were consuming most of his time each day.

The Solution

“Before using BambooHR, most of my day was administrative. I was putting out fires and thinking a lot about day-to-day problems...BambooHR made it so that I’m not spending as much time on the operational. I’m spending more time on the strategic.” Aaron Wheeler HR Manage
