Need a free tool for HR Management & Project Management

I'm a trainee HR executive in a Game developing company. There are less than 30 employees in the firm.

We're in search of a free tool or software that can be used to Manage Human Resources & Projects. It must have Leave Tracking, Payroll etc.

It'll be a great help is you can suggest some..

Thank you

Re: tools

I find most project managers quite happy using Excel, Word and Powerpoint. The free equivalent (since you're asking for that) is LibreOffice.

HRM is much more difficult, especially the payroll part, due to the differences between rules in different countries. Generally, the software isn't free, and you need a maintenance contract to stay up to date.

And ...

For HRM and payroll I'd advise to NOT install something on your own network, but use some SaaS-package. Those are always web-based. You could consider to add a requirement that your personnel can access it from home for features called 'Employee Self Service'.

It's a logical extension from the 1970's when payroll was processed by mainframes in data-centers accepting punched cards made by data-typists from the forms you filled in. Later version had time-sharing features so the HRM-staff could do the data-entry on a terminal. It's still specialised stuff that's best done via a standard package offered by SaaS-provider.

Tools for HRM and Project management

Which are the tools for HRM and Project management bundle together? Suggest me free as well as premium tools.

Why bundled?

Most projects only involve a small part of the staff, and also can include external consultants, that aren't in the HRM system. Both are very good arguments AGAINST integration.
