Product Details

What is BrightHR?

BrightHR provides HR software and support services for small and medium-sized enterprises.

The software allows users to manage staff holidays, TOIL, sickness and lateness, in real-time. Plus, BrightHR can be used to plan and share staff rotas so that employees can see when they are working.

Customers also have unlimited storage space for employee documents. Users can access them wherever they are, and set permission levels so that junior staff don’t get their hands on top-secret information. Additionally...

BrightHR customers get access to Blip—a clocking system that allows users to see who’s in and who’s currently on a break—and PoP, an expense tracker app to manage staff expenses with ease and approve them on the go.

As well as software and apps, BrightHR offers support services to help businesses with employment law, health & safety, and employee wellbeing.

We adopted BrightHR to assist in managing HR issues (via Croner) and ensure our staff followed correct procedures and processes. We wanted the structured support the platform offers to guide us and provide a simple, attractive, easy-to-use platform for all staff so that they would engage and benefit. Onboarding from Samuel was brilliant - he was helpful, witty, and knowledgeable. I toyed around with the platform and added some data, so he could tailor his presentation and answer my seemingly obscure questions without batting an eyelid - very impressive.
  • Document handling
  • Employee data display
  • Probably leave administration (though we have to decide whether to adopt that)
  • Ability to handle things on team by team basis rather than individuals (BrightSafe)
  • Encourage admin by a specific admin account rather than the account of a 'user'
It seems appropriate for SMBs who are often without specific HR personnel.

Our business uses BrightHR for Time and Attendance of our employees within a very busy childcare centre. Gareth has given us fantastic training on the BrightHR system in-house. He has made us all feel extremely comfortable around the use of this package and could not have been more supportive and pleasant as a trainer as we bombarded him with all our questions. I would very much recommend Gareth to any company wishing to put the BrightHR System in place as you will be guaranteed continued support from him and his company. The software seems like it will be very easy to use going forward and will make life easier day to day for us.
  • Training.
  • User-friendly.
  • Secure.
  • Irish Location site for BrightHR would be fantastic.
On a scale of 1 to 10 I would give BrightHR a ten. Fantastic company.

We use Bright HR along with Bright Safe to store all of our risk assessments, policies and e-learning for our employees. The product has highlighted what risk assessments we are missing and also which policies need updating.
  • Organisation and communication is impeccable.
  • Communication is always friendly and helpful.
Our account manager, Elisha S., was so helpful and kind in the training that I received from her. She is extremely punctual and provided amazing service.

Our organization has only recently signed up for Bright HR. The training and support provided so far to help us become familiar with it have been very good. Our onboarding account manager has been very professional and patiently taking the time to go through the system in detail.
  • Onboarding
  • Providing information
  • Answering queries
  • Enable some additional features within employee permissions
Well suited to organizations that do not have their own HR department

We use BrightHR to retain accurate and up-to-date staff HR records. Also, we take advantage of the BrightHR helpline to address input and processing queries. For example, we have just discussed an annual leave entitlement query for a member of staff who works irregular shifts.
  • When a query has been dealt with via the helpline an email confirming the outcome is often issued which is great for reference at any time.
  • The system is easy to use and the screens are clutter free.
  • The support service offered is easy to access and the staff are friendly and helpful.
  • Direct-dial telephone numbers rather than going through the Peninsula helpline numbers.
  • Setting up annual leave profiles often needs the assistance of a Bright HR representative when staff works quirky shifts. Providing examples of how to set the system up in user guides may help to set the system upright the first time.
For a new part of our business, we have input staff details on Bright HR. There have been times when calls have been made to the helpline for guidance. It does not take long to get to know the staff you are speaking to. In relation to the query addressed with a team member today the service was excellent. Matthew has a great depth of knowledge of the system and works through the shift and annual leave calculations at the click of a finger. Thank you Mathew for your support, you are a star!

Being a small business I do not always have time to stay on top of every employment law change. Bright HR frees up a lot of my time and streamlines the HR process in the company. We love that we now have access to top HR professionals to assist us when needed from drawing up new contracts of employment right through any disciplinary process we may need to undertake in the future.
  • Staying in contact with us
  • Easy to use Sotware
  • Quick Response to questions we have
  • Bright Exchange should add functionality to list in more than one region
  • Should be able to calculate holiday hours based on hours worked
Less suited to calculating actual holidays due
Great for keeping a HR system in place

As a small organization, BrightHR was affordable and has helped us to streamline and manage our HR processes more efficiently, from personnel record filing through to managing holiday requests and managing absence. It is very easy to use; the app is great for employees to use on their phones and it makes managing employee requests quick and easy. Employees and line manager can manage their own holiday and absences without having to go through HR. And personally, I love the cheery interface and inspiring quotes every time I login :o) Thank you BrightHR!
  • BrightHR app for employees and managers
  • BrightHR newsflash for the latest HR updates
  • BrightHR notifications and reminders
  • BrightHR documents - organisation and employee
  • Batch imports of employee data
  • All teams access to a holiday calendar across teams
I like the fact that there is a lot of ongoing development. The team is quick to respond to all support and development requests and I like that new features are being added all the time, which help me to do my day-to-day job.

Bright HR will give everyone access to their employment documents and track holiday leave, sick leave and any other type of leave.

It is also great for creating rotas. It will bring a level of professionalism to empowering and managing employee needs. The set up is very easy. The support is excellent and like any system, it can probably do more than you realize!
  • support
  • easy to use
  • none that I can think of
Suited to both large and small organisations. Takes some level of knowledge of HR issues in order to manage it.

BrightHR is used to track employee absences, monitor holidays, and hold all our HR information about each employee. We also use the folders to share HR policies and send out reminders for managers to track and update documents, etc. It allows us to go paperless and have centrally held information where we can access it whenever and wherever in the world we are. It also allows for viability as to who is in the office or working from home, etc.
  • Holiday management
  • HR storage
  • Absence reporting
  • Track vacation
  • Permissions-need to be revised.
  • The bottom landing page is hard to navigate.
  • Granting access to employees has too many saves involved.
BrightHR is great at showing who is on holiday, who is in the office or working from home; which team and who reports to who. It is great at setting up new employees and it is very intuitive with setting the new employees up.

You can add all HR documents to individual employee folders and you can give permission to those employees to view documents or you can turn that off. You can set reminders for reviews and PDRs as well as you receive reminders from Bright HR letting you know if the information is missing; for if someone needs holiday/TOIL approval.

I find the fact that documents cannot be viewed in the application frustrating as sometimes I do not want to download the document to my laptop.
