Who are HiBob and HowNow?

HiBob is the HRIS that helps you organise all your employee data, HowNow is the learning experience platform that puts it to work!

We’ll help you deliver the right resources to the right people in the right moments, all through one simple integration between your HR data and employee development.

Why should I use HiBob and HowNow together?

What do all of these activities have in common?

  • When someone new joins the company, there are resources you need to send them.
  • If someone switches teams, training and content will have to be completed.
  • Mandatory training needs to be completed at an employee milestone, and you have to work out who, when and how it’ll be done.

The answer is time – they normally take up too much of it.

Integrating HowNow and HiBob automatically syncs your employee data, meaning you can automate those time-consuming tasks AND connect people to relevant learning.

Automate the
onboarding process.

New employees are automatically added and their data is transferred from HiBob to HowNow, meaning you can automatically invite them to your learning space. Set rules for sending content based on start date, ensuring content that’s relevant to every employee is sent to every employee.

Assign relevant
learning content
to employee groups.

Automatically create learning groups based on departments and job roles, allowing you to deliver the right content to the right people.

Deliver content
based on custom rules.

Create specific learning rules based on multiple data points in HiBob. Imagine you need to send a course to every marketing employee that’s joined since September, we’ll help you build that custom rule.
