StarGarden provide hire-to-fire HCM software for medium to large sized organizations working across the education, cross-border, government and unionized industry sectors.
The StarGarden HCM is a fully-featured system which offers a comprehensive range of core HR functionalities, including applicant tracking, benefits management, onboarding and performance management. Both employee and manager self-service is available, allowing users to undertake basic HR tasks themselves.
StarGarden is customizable, allowing users to modify dashboards and reporting functions to best suit their needs. Customers can purchase the software in packages - their ‘Essential HR’ functionalities can be extended with the ‘Extended HR’, ‘Payroll’ and ‘Workflow’ packages. The software is aimed at companies who want to automate and streamline the complex benefits calculations needed for unionized organizations, so StarGarden provides extensive benefits and payroll management features.
StarGarden can be delivered either on-premise or as a cloud HRMS, with mobile functionality also available. Pricing is based on a one-off licensing fee which varies by number of employees in the client’s organization. ‘Train the trainer’ training is included in the implementation, and 24 hour customer service support is available.
Founded in 1984 as Pathfinder, StarGarden is now a worldwide company headquartered in Vancouver, BC. Current clients include Wyoming’s Powell Valley Healthcare, Vancouver Island University, and the City of St. John’s, Newfoundland.
