Pleo Perks Spotlight: Humaans

The rise of remote work, the evolution of the gig economy and other shifts in how jobs are shaped have made HR teams even more essential to well-functioning companies.

But Human Resources Information Systems (HRIS), intended to make the job of these teams easier, have struggled to keep up with the changes.

Most of the legacy systems have remained too complex, failing to cater for new realities and not scaling properly with the teams.

This is what Giovanni Luperti and Karolis Narkevicius set out to solve when they launched Humaans last year.

Here’s an introduction to the company, for our second Perks partner spotlight. Keep reading to find out how Pleo customers can save when they sign up to Humaans – and check out the full list of Perks here.

Humaans’ Origins

Based in London, the goal of Humaans is "to build a lightweight HRIS designed to help People Ops/Finance/IT teams operate collaboratively."

The system offers "best-in-class point solutions" those teams want for their staff, while maintaining a central layer of employee data.

"[We want] to turn laborious processes into simple and automated workflows," says Luperti. "Most systems out there promote an all-in-one type model which doesn't scale and generates data fragmentation as your company evolves and you start inevitably expanding your people tech stack.

"We're solving that – by building the iPhone of HRISs. An extremely fast and delightful product, able to benefit the entire organisation.

"Employee experience, user experience and design are now part of the equation, and we value these aspects deeply."

A closer look at the business

Right now, Humaans’ customer base mostly consists of start-ups and growing technology companies distributed across Europe. "We love working with organisations that value a high quality user experience, efficiency, and business velocity," says Luperti.

The most interesting feature of Humaans for HR teams are its employee database, absence tracking and payroll summary. It also has robust integrations and an open API that lets companies build custom integrations to speed up processes and workflows.

For employees, the value in Humaans lies in the ease with which they can book time off, record sick days and see when their colleagues are away on vacation or working from other offices.
