The last two years have been a huge challenge for businesses across the globe.
When the Job Retention Scheme (JRS) was announced, business owners had to suddenly adapt to new rules, regulations, and processes. We 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.
From helping businesses manage furlough to giving employers the tools and advice they needed to make their workplaces COVID-secure, navigating businesses (including our own!) through the pandemic has been challenging but extremely rewarding.
And we haven’t slowed down. This year we launched VaccTrak, our online vaccine tracker, reached over fifteen million global clock-ins with Blip, and created Bright Lightning–the UK’s first HR AI-powered platform.
And as 2021 comes to an end, it’s been fantastic to see our hard work being recognised…
Personnel Today Awards
Hosted at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel, the Personnel Today Awards celebrate the best in HR, and the glitzy award dinner didn’t stop short!
The cherry on top of the night? BrightHR walked away with HR Technology Provider of the Year with a shiny award to bring back to BrightHQ!
Here’s a word from Personnel Today: “BrightHR impressed our judges with their fast and comprehensive response to the employment challenges posed by the pandemic, launching a range of products to help clients with furlough, going back to work, and tracking employees’ vaccination status.”
