BrightHR Overview

BrightHR is an easy-to-use HR software for small businesses that’s available on desktop and mobile.

With the BrightHR app, you can easily approve staff holidays, record sickness, and track lateness on the go. While your staff can request time off, check their remaining holiday allowance, and get real-time rota updates on their mobiles.

BrightHR also comes with unlimited storage space for all your employee documents. You can access them wherever you are, and even set permission levels so that junior staff don’t get their hands on top-secret information. But there’s more…

As a BrightHR user, you get exclusive access to Blip. It’s a free clocking in and out app that lets you track your team’s work hours on the go.

Plus, manage staff expenses with ease and approve them on the go with PoP (proof of purchase), our new app which is free for BrightHR customers. And as we’re always coming up with new ideas to make HR management easier for our customers, you could get your hands on more innovative apps in the future.

As well as award-winning software and apps BrightHR also offers expert advice helplines to answer all of those tricky questions about employment law and health & safety. Plus get access to a library of documentation templates to help you to ensure that you are compliant in your HR and H&S management.

It has helped streamline or holiday system as it has often been troublesome trying to organise them around each other when you've to keep a minimum number of staff

Pros

It keeps all of the information in an easy to use space and helps reduce the amount of paper needed for records. The leave request system is great and being able to notify staff when you've uploaded documents removes the hassle of ensuring everyone receives the information.

Cons

The rota system is a little clunky. It would be great if you could copy a previous published rota or have some way to save the shift times so as you don't have to enter the start and finish time for each staff member on every day. You should also be able to change staff between fixed and variable shifts.

I've asked twice for help with Bank Holiday and leave carry over concerns and response was slow in the first case and no reply to date for the second ?
Software is easy to learn as both an administrator and user, support issues leave room for improvement.

Pros

Ease of booking holidays and other absences.

Cons

Will not automatically add in Bank Holidays or carry over unused leave to next year.

No requirement for physical calendar which is prone to errors, staff can access planner anytime and anywhere, approvals for annual leave are straight forward and managed more effectively

Pros

Very easy to use, straight forward setup, very quick to answer queries, customer support has been excellent so far - definitely the way forward to outsource HR for small businesses!

Cons

Some areas needed a bit more explanation and guidance on how best to use
