OrangeHRM alternative

Using Bitrix24 as free OrangeHRM alternative

OrangeHRM is an open source human resources management system, available both in cloud and on-premise. It has a free option, but can be fairly tricky to set up and comes with an outdated interface, especially when compared with social HRIS tools that appeared recently. While OrangeHRM comes with all the core HRIS tools, it's clearly created for the HR department, not employees. There are no employee engagement or social collaboration tools, or workspaces where different groups or departments can discuss ongoing issues. If you are looking for a free OrangeHRM alternative that has a better interface and engages your employees, do consider Bitrix24.
