A brief overview of Breathe HR

BreatheHR is a people-management system designed to help SMEs streamline HR administration and save time. This intuitive platform consolidates all employee data in one place, allowing you to log sickness, manage holiday books, handle training management, schedule rotas, monitor performance, store personal information, and upload both personnel and company documents. By simplifying these tasks, Breathe allows you to focus on your business.

How can I customise Breathe HR to fit the specific needs of the organisation?

Breathe offers flexible permissions, allowing you to control who has access to your team’s information, ensuring sensitive data remains secure. The system enables you to customise your holiday year and allowances, configure working patterns, and tailor various picklist such as relevant training for your business.
