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 An employee is flagged amber if he or she has an out of date handbook or soon to expire contract.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.

4 Tips to Banish your Employee's January Blues

The third Monday in January has officially been reported as the most depressing day of the year, Blue Monday. Research also shows that the month of January has the highest rate of sick leave.

After the hype and excitement of December, January brings lighter bank balances, tighter waistbands, and overall melancholy that the fun and festivities are over for another her. So it’s not surprising that your employees will catch the “January Blues”, feeling tired, unmotivated, lacking energy and focus. However, the New Year is also a time for fresh starts, a time to plan and to set targets for the months ahead.

Here are our top tips on how to stamp out the January Blues in your workplace:

Generate enthusiasm

To help generate enthusiasm, you need something for staff to look forward to that will be energetic and fun. Why not introduce a team building event or social event? Something that will refocus the team, it’s upbeat and entertaining. Even a team lunch on a Friday afternoon will lighten the mood and enthuse staff to apply themselves.

Set targets

 Goal setting in January is a good idea. It allows you to set out plans for the year ahead and let your employees know what the key objectives for the business are – and how they will play a crucial role in achieving that. Along with setting Company goals, set individual goals, and team goals.


A key factor in driving motivation amongst employees, is the feeling of being recognised for their work and achievements. Acknowledging employees for a job they have done well, will make them feel valued and encourages them to continue doing what they do effectively.

The impact of simply saying thank you, can go a long way. These two words, can have an overwhelming effect on employee engagement and productivity.

Workplace wellbeing

One of the most popular New Year resolutions people pledge, it to lose weight. The chances are several of your team will be looking to achieve this, as they are feeling sluggish from all the Christmas over-indulgence.

As we know, it’s important as an employer to invest in workplace wellbeing and fruit is a fantastic superfood that can help concentration and productivity levels. So why not show your support to staff and their resolution, by providing complimentary fruit platters for employees to enjoy.

The New Year is an opportunity to start fresh and achieve success. You need a fully focused workforce to accomplish this. Follow these top tips to help refocus employees and make 2017 a prosperous year.
