Great for managing a large amount of peoples Annual Leave and Toil

Its an easy tool to request and manage your employee's Annual leave. The ability to add additional time off through toil is also a useful tool as its clear and transparent in terms of how much time you have left to take

Cons

There is a lot of services on the platform so sometimes you can get a bit lost when your trying to find something specific but over all its great

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.

Response from BrightHR

Sorry to hear about this issue, we're currently reviewing this internally so that we can improve what we do.
