Staff Squared alternative

Using Bitrix24 as free Staff Squared alternative

Staff Squared is a British cloud based HR and employee management system founded in 2007. It is fairly inexpensive at $5/user/mo and comes with a great interface that promotes social interactions between employees and management. All the core HRIS features, like leave request and work report are present, but there are no advanced HR tools (you can't use Staff Squared to hold online meetings or put IT Helpdesk requests). More importantly, there is no self-hosted edition of Staff Squared, meaning you can't customize it and will have to pay for it forever, as long as you use it. If you are looking for a free Staff Squared alternative that doesn't have these limitations, Bitrix24 makes a great choice.
