We are Bright

Our story

Want to know how the most popular HR software for SMEs got started? Well, it’s pretty simple.

We saw that small business owners were spending hours every day on their HR tasks. And we wanted to create a system that made those same chores quicker and easier to do.

So we put our heads together and created software that was unlike any other—and that’s how BrightHR was born.

Where we’re at today

Since our launch in 2015, we’ve branched out into other areas of HR for small businesses.

Now, we offer 24/7 employment law advice, expert health & safety support, a confidential employee wellbeing service and much more.

So with us, it’s like having a ready-made HR team, health & safety manager and employment law specialist on your side – only, we won’t charge you outrageous hourly rates.

No wonder 90,000 businesses – across the UK, Ireland, Canada, New Zealand and Australia—trust us to free them of their paperwork and keep them on the right side of the law.

Our values


With our legal know-how and years of experience, we know our stuff – but we’re never stuffy. We don’t lecture or judge, we simply break down mind-boggling information so that it’s easier for you to understand.


We’re the risk-takers. We try new things, push boundaries and always dream big. Because we’re committed to creating cutting-edge tech that helps small business owners like you.


We don’t sugar-coat. We give you the advice you need to hear every time. And we don’t bombard you with tech talk or legal mumbo jumbo either. We speak like real people because that’s what we are.

Be an ALLY

We know what small businesses need because that’s how we got started. We’ve faced the same struggles and revelled in the same triumphs. That’s what makes us the perfect people to help your business grow.
