Since our launch, BrightHR has been committed to supporting businesses of all sizes and across all industries to navigate their toughest challenges.

From the uncertainty of the pandemic years to hiring the right people during the current global talent shortage—our mission has remained the same. To help businesses not just survive, but actively grow their profits, simplify their people management, and build better businesses.

We’ve grown from humble beginnings—building from a team of five people and one iOS mobile app in 2015, to five apps and 100,000 customers around the world.

We’ve experienced first-hand the struggles that small business owners go through. Including keeping up with changing employment laws, having the right employee policies to avoid legal action, and juggling the multiple other roles business owners have to take on without falling short of any of them.

It’s this granular understanding that’s allowed us to develop an HR and health & safety solution that’s accessible to all businesses small, medium, or large—whether they’re a local café, a nursing home, or a well-known franchise.

Now, eight years later, we’re proud to support businesses on three continents and serve over 100,000 clients worldwide.

And we haven’t done this by sitting still; our experts are constantly evolving our adaptive software to meet your unique business challenges.

To us, that evolution has taken the form of our VaccTrak that’s recorded over 225,000+ vaccinations around the world and helped employers promptly follow health guidelines during the pandemic to better protect their people. Or Praise, our employee recognition platform introduced a few months ago when it became clear that, in the age of hybrid work, employers need a productivity and motivation-boosting tool to support their work culture.

That’s why we’re proud to reveal our very first interactive report Bright’s Blueprints: Leaders in Tech. It’s the first report of this kind from an HR software company to give you a transparent look at all the products and services we’ve invested in so far and a clear overview of what we’ve got planned for the upcoming year and beyond.

This is all part of our vision to remove the barriers of high-cost solutions that would typically only be available from a faceless corporation. Because we believe that transparency is key to being a top provider.

Taking a look back at everything we’ve achieved in the past year alone helps us set our sights on all the milestones to come and crucially, to put our customers first.

Our report sheds light on: * The 5,000+ hours our readily drafted HR and health & safety documents have saved clients in admin time.
