BrightHR has been recognized as a WBA Winner for Software Innovation in the World Business Awards 2022. The World Business Award for Software Innovation [SWR] recognizes software products and services that provide innovative solutions for business and market needs.

BrightHR is an award-winning HR cloud software and support service for small business owners, available on desktop and mobile. BrightHR’s solutions are designed to transform people management for small businesses by providing innovative HR and health and safety software, giving employers all the tools and support they need to manage and grow their business.

At its core, BrightHR’s people management software makes it quicker and easier for employers to approve staff holidays, log sickness, track lateness, plan rotas, and store all confidential business documents in one place. Staff can use the software and associated apps to request time off, check their remaining holiday allowance, and get real-time rota updates on their mobiles. Extra support services also include 24/7 employment law advice, expert health & safety guidance, and a confidential employee wellbeing programme.

BrightHR is continually evolving and expanding its products through listening to customer feedback which has been the catalyst for many of its latest and most innovative features.

In 2020, BrightHR had to respond to a huge shift in customer demand as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. When lockdowns and restrictions came into effect, business owners had to suddenly adapt to new rules, regulations, and processes. BrightHR moved fast and created a full suite of software to support employers through every stage of the COVID-19 pandemic in-line with changing government guidance.

For example the BrightSafe module, which helps businesses manage their health and safety obligations in one place, was tailored to provide specific support for COVID-related challenges through infection control risk assessment templates, back-to-work guides, and H&S eLearning courses.

Similarly, BrightHR implemented the VaccTrak feature, an add-on to the already pre-existing BrightHR portal that can monitor the COVID-19 vaccination record of all employees. At the click of a button, employers can see a list of all their employees, mark down who has been fully vaccinated, partially vaccinated, or unvaccinated, and plan their roster accordingly. Not only does this reduce the danger of spreading the virus if an outbreak were to occur, but it also provides that piece of mind.
