BrightHR invests £1 million into Back to Work Navigator tool

The new tool from BrightHR will provide a central hub to employers that they can use to manage furlough statuses, and stagger employee shift times.

Additionally, users can send alerts via the app telling employees when the business is ready to reopen, and make use of the tool’s guidance on health and safety in the form of guides, factsheets, checklists and other resources.

“With the UK government announcing its plans to ease the lockdown earlier this week, businesses need to start preparing now to reopen,” said Alan Price, CEO of BrightHR. “It’s important to note that this does not mean that everything suddenly returns to normal. There are health and safety guidelines to think about, rotas and staggered shift times to plan out, and furloughed paperwork to complete, and that’s where the BrightHR Back to Work Navigator can help.

“BrightHR is committed to supporting new and existing clients through this challenging time, and our significant investment of £1 million in the Back to Work Navigator tool and national advertising campaign shows this.

“Our new piece of software compliments BrightHR’s already established suite of tools, such as the Furlough Navigator and Shift and Rota Planner, and it will transform the way business owners manage their staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Alongside the new tool’s release, BrightHR, in collaboration with channel agency We Are Boutique, have put in place a national advertising campaign, which is set to appear on Sky TV, as well as Sky’s AdSmart.

Simon Bollon, managing director of We Are Boutique, said: “It’s been great to work with such a dynamic business that has the interests of small businesses at its heart.

“We responded to BrightHR’s brief with a multi-channel campaign that went live within weeks. It’s targeted specifically to raise awareness of the help and advice that’s available to business owners during these challenging times.”
