What is it?

Bright Contracts is a software package that has everything you need to create and manage a professional staff handbook and contracts of employment. Getting these in place has traditionally been an expensive, complicated and time-consuming process. Bright Contracts makes it quick and easy.

Why should I use it?

Without employee contracts in place, an employer is risking large settlements in the case of staff disputes, and fines in the case of regulatory inspections. Having contracts also clearly defines the contractual relationship between you and your employees. Bright Contracts is the easiest way to get sorted.

How much does it cost?

Single employer, unlimited employees €149
Multiple employers, unlimited employees €299
Phone/email support Free

Price is per user and subject to VAT. Price covers 12 months full use from date of activation.

Feature Packed Software

Bright Contracts is teeming with useful functionality, from the obvious to the obscure. Yet it delivers it all in a neat, easy to use package. You'll wonder how you ever managed without it.

Unlimited Employees

Bright Contracts does not set a limit on the number of employees you can add. And there are no confusing price brackets that depend on the number of employees you have.

Create Your Staff Handbook

Use the suggested content or customise it to your needs. Add pre-defined sections or add your own proprietary sections. Re-arrange as required.

Create Employment Contracts

Create a contract for each employee and record when they are signed. Archive old contracts. Base one contract on another for rapid creation.

Styles, Fonts, Colours

With full control over cover pages, logos, headers, footers, fonts, colours, and more, you can ensure your documents match your corporate identity, or just simply make them look how you want.

Document Previewing

Before you print a handbook or contract, you can see an accurate on-screen preview of how it will look on page. Scroll, zoom and pan controls make it simple and flexible.

Keeping Track

An employee is flagged red if he or she does not have a handbook or contract. An employee is flagged amber if he or she has an out of date handbook or soon to expire contract.

At a Glance

The summary screen gives you an overview of handbooks in use, recent handbook updates, who does and doesn't have a handbook, and who does and doesn't have a current signed contract.

Guidance and Tips

Always Up To Date

Employment law legislation changes over time. When it does, and the Bright Contracts handbook or contract template changes, you'll be made aware of the adjustment, which you can accept with a single click.

How your Company can benefit from staff induction

Many companies spend considerable time and money finding and recruiting the right staff to join their team. Disappointingly however, very few companies take the time to provide proper induction for their new staff.

Induction is about welcoming and introducing a new employee to your company.

A good induction process will boost staff retention rates and productivity levels enabling new recruits to contribute to the bottom line much quicker. 

Statistics show that individuals decide whether or not they feel at home in an organisation within the first three weeks in a company. Furthermore, new hires who go through a well planned induction program are 58% more likely to remain with a company for up to three years.

What should be included in induction?

The induction programme should be tailored to suit your organization and the role being hired for.

However, as a guide, the following should be considered:

  • Administration: contract of employment, company policies & procedures, health and safety.
  • Company overview: your products and services, your history.
  • Full office tour and introduction to colleagues and management.
  • Job training: specific role training as well as general office / IT training - this may be ongoing over a number of weeks.
  • Feedback: regular catch-ups during the probation period to assess how the employee is doing. Positive feedback will help build their confidence, constructive feedback will help them improve.
