Product Overview

BirdDogHR offers a variety of cloud-based solutions that cover any part of the employee life cycle. For an in-depth look at its Recruitment and ATS solution, check out our BirdDogHR ATS Review.

As a talent management provider, BirdDogHR is designed to effectively organize potential and hired employees, track their success and foster employee engagement across a company.

Through a variety of software modules, BirdDogHR automates and streamlines all steps of the employee life cycle, from applicant tracking and recruitment to learning activities and succession planning.

In addition to the features offered, BirdDogHR keeps its clients’ needs and goals first and foremost by providing services to help with talent outsourcing, brand awareness, and drug and background screening.


BirdDogHR offers many features to help organize, manage and empower the greatest asset to any company – its people.

The features included are:

  • Recruitment and ATS – The cloud-based applicant tracking system (ATS) helps organizations achieve better brand awareness, reach a larger talent pool and stay compliant during the recruitment process. It has a centralized hub to store all candidate information, making it easy to go back and review past applicants and their qualifications when a new position is posted.
  • Onboarding – BirdDogHR’s software makes onboarding paperless, which reduces the time and headaches it takes to bring a new hire up to speed. By taking away the manual methods of filling out paperwork, there’s less of a chance for input error or missed signatures, allowing managers and new hires to focus more on training.
  • Performance Management – This module allows business leaders to keep a critical eye on their employees performance on both a companywide and individual level. Managers can customize how they evaluate and encourage employee success, as well as use the corporate strategy to help talent align their goals accordingly.
  • Learning Management – Reducing the skill gaps in an organization’s talent, the cloud-based learning management system allows companies to easily share business knowledge with current employees. This helps improve the skills of existing talent instead of hiring new employees to fill the gaps, saving both time and money.
  • Collaboration – BirdDogHR has an online repository where users can share documents and information across the company. An open forum empowers employees to work together and speak up with feedback, improving employee engagement and experience.
  • Succession – This cloud-based module reviews an employee’s readiness to successfully move forward within an organization using tools like scorecards and 9-Box Talent Matrices. This leverages the information in an employee’s goals and performance reviews to help show where the talent gaps are and how best to close them.
