BreatheHR Summit 2019

The Breathe HR Partners Summit 2019 took place in London earlier this month. One of Agile HR’s employees was lucky enough to attend and here is an update of what took place during the course of the day –

Jonathan Richards Founder and CEO of BreatheHR spoke about the reasons why he founded the company. When looking at and discussing existing HR Software he said to himself, “There has to be a better way” and that is why BreatheHR was born. They have had a 63% growth in the last year so you can see that many SME’s are taking advantage of this fantastic software.

What BreatheHR Offer

Agile HR first became partners with BreatheHR just over a year ago.

The Day

This was the first time we have attended a BreatheHR summit, which are held annually. The day’s agenda consisted of a selection of speakers from internal Breathe staff and external quest speakers. This included Perry Timms and Daniel Barnett.

Perry Timms from PTHR spoke about design thinking and ‘Agile’ in HR. He also mentioned taking HR into the future. We of course couldn’t agree more J

Daniel Barnett, an employment lawyer barrister, was the key-note speaker. He spoke about the ‘Top 7 tips for HR Consultants’, which included how to handle absence during disciplinary.

One of the highlights was the partner panel Q&A, it consisted of current partners discussing how they use Breathe, their top tips and how the software has benefited their clients.

We also enjoyed a talk from Carlene Jackson, CEO of Cloud 9 Insight. She spoke about how apprenticeships have worked in her workplace. This is something that Agile HR are keen advocates of in businesses and have seen first-hand how well they can work. Carlene even invited one of her apprentices onto the floor who made a very inspiring speech about how it was the right path for her.

Other Highlights

Clair got to meet some fellow HR Breathe Partners and shared some ideas and tips one of the other real benefits of attending.
