Smart HR software company, BrightHR has reached a milestone in Australia.
Since launching, the scale-up technology platform has helped more than 20,000 local Australian businesses navigate HR-related challenges and growth.
BrightHR CEO David Price said they are not focused on increasing that figure.
“I see us helping 30,000 customers and more in the next few years,” he said.
“Not only is it an asset to our customer loyalty here in Australia, it also demonstrates the global demand for smart, reliable HR software. To date, managers and employees using BrightHR have logged 128,000 vacation days and clocked in 3.1 million times to work.”
Price launched BrightHR 10 years ago after observing how small business owners spend hours every day on HR tasks.
Operations chief Jessica Van Der Walt said challenges around recruiting and retaining employees don’t give entrepreneurs time to think freely.
“BrightExchangea world first for an HR company, was launched for this reason,” she said.
It allows users to create unlimited ads for 140,000 potential local users for free. Customers can advertise their products and services on the marketplace and share exclusive benefits and discounts with other business owners.
Walt said they’ve developed a suite of tools that help managers navigate the entire employee lifecycle.
“After seeing the many difficulties, companies were hiring last year in a tight hiring market; the company launched their Turbo Talent Navigatoran all-in-one platform designed to help SMEs bring in top talent,” she said.
Training also plays a vital role in ensuring that staff are fully equipped to handle an ever-changing world and evolving work needs.
“Our brand new online micro-learning platform, BrightLearn, is designed to educate employers and employees on a wide range of HR topics anytime, anywhere. And as a company that advocates for small businesses, we’re offering this feature to Bright customers at no additional cost,” said Walt.
Dan Ussher, CEO and founder of Veresco GRC said BrightHR was “a no-brainer” for him.
“In Australia we have a very complicated relationship with HR. And as a CEO of a company, I struggled to keep records and understand local requirements,” he said.
“The 24/7 access I get to HR specialists protects me and helps me manage.”
