It has never been easier to create your contracts of employment.

With Bright Contracts, creating thorough, tailored, professional contracts of employment is quick and easy. What was once a very expensive and time-consuming process (often involving a third-party service provider) can now be done on your PC.

  • Set up as many employees and contracts as required – there are no limits to how many can be added. You can import employees from a CSV file or sync with BrightPay.
  • Tailor your contracts by selecting or entering the employment details for each employee. All types of worker are accommodated. On-screen help gives a clear and concise explanation for any details you may not understand and for what the various choices mean.
  • Add your own text content to any contract. Browse our library of sample additional contract content to cover every eventuality.
  • Customise the contract styles, fonts, page size and margins. Optionally include your company logo.
  • Preview contracts as you build them. Print contracts or export to PDF when ready.
  • Add headers and footers with smart-text.
  • Record the contract date of signature.
  • Minimise effort by copying the settings from other existing contracts.

Your Employee Handbook. Your way.

Bright Contracts starts with a ready-made handbook that fully conforms to the latest employment law guidelines. Additional sections  that may apply to your business are a click away. You can be up and running in minutes.

  • An immediately intuitive and clear user interface makes working with your handbook quick and simple.
  • Start with the ready-made handbook template and add any additional sections that may apply. Edit, delete or re-organise the built-in content, and easily add your own content.
  • Optionally include a cover page with your employer logo.
  • Customise handbook fonts, colours, numbering, page sizes and print margins.
  • Include flexible headers and/or footers with smart-text.
  • Preview your handbook on-screen at any time while you build it (whole handbook or single section). Print or export to PDF when ready.
  • Print a handbook signature page tailored to your workflow.
  • Add your own private notes to help keep track of your decision making.

It‘s like having your own personal employment law expert.

You do not need to have any employment law or HR experience to use Bright Contracts – it's designed for everybody. Our goal is to help you fulfil your employer obligations quickly and easily, giving you more time to run your business.

  • The handbook and contract content for Bright Contracts has been created by a team of experienced HR and Employment Law specialists, all holding Chartered CIPD status and with many years of experience in the fields of HR and industrial relations.
  • On-screen help is included throughout Bright Contracts to explain any choices you may not understand and walk you through the options.
  • When employment law changes, you don't need to worry. We'll send out updates to the content for employment contracts and handbooks, which you can preview or accept with a single click.
  • Handbook content updates are non-invasive. If you have customised the built-in handbook, your hard work will not be modified. Instead, you will be notified of what's new with the option to preview the new content suggestions.
  • Contract content updates will be applied to new contracts only. Your existing agreements with employees will stay as they are word-for-word, just like they should.

Helping you stay in control.

  • The Bright Contracts employer summary gives you an overview of the state of your employees, letting you know if there are any upcoming or outstanding tasks to take care of.
  • Bright Contracts keeps a copy of each handbook version that you give to your employees. Previous versions can be viewed or re-printed.
  • Priority warnings are flagged for employees who:
    • Do not have a handbook
    • Do not have a contract
    • Have an expired contract
  • Other warnings are flagged for employees who:
    • Do not have the latest version of the handbook
    • Have a soon to expire contract
  • Optionally password-protect your employer data and/or any exported PDF documents.
  • Take snapshots of your data and roll-back at any time.

The Benefits of having Employee Referral Schemes

One of the many challenges faced in the world of HR is recruitment. Whether it’s trying to fill multiple roles or trying to find the right candidate for one an employee referral scheme may be a solution.

In this post, we will share some benefits of introducing an employee referral scheme to your organisation.

Employee referrals are faster hires

One of the most challenging aspects of hiring is that it takes a long time to find a quality candidate. Not only do you have to search through CVs, but you have to schedule screenings and in-person interviews. Not to mention that candidates can drop out of the process bringing you back to square one.

Less costly hires

Using referral methods to gain employees will lead to not using recruiting agencies which come at a high cost.

Employee referrals onboard more quickly

New hires may feel intimidated and withhold from asking questions or getting clarification about things they’re confused about, which can slow down the onboarding process. However, having a friend in the same company can make it easier to open up and get integrated quicker into the organisation.

Improves Employee Engagement

When a company asks employees to help them find their next new hire it makes them feel more empowered. At the same time, it’s a great feeling for them when they can help their friends with their next career move.

Boost Employer Branding

When employees spread the word about job openings it brings a lot of traffic to the company. This also improves brand visibility.

 Many companies use employee referral schemes with employees receiving rewards such as cash bonuses or experiential rewards. Building employee referral programs can generate buzz and excitement around the workplace.
