HR analytics especially designed for small charities

Breathe, HR software provider for SMEs, has announced its partnership with the Tech Trust, an NFP which helps more than 36,000 UK charities access discounted technology.

Breathe’s software is now offered to all UK registered charities with 50 per cent discount off the standard monthly subscription cost and is already used by more than 1,000 charities to manage employee and volunteer related information and documents.

The partnership follows findings by the Tech Trust that 95 per cent of charities are missing out on the HR efficiency gains that can be achieved by using software, like Breathe, despite the fact that many are already benefiting from accounting and CRM systems.

The report – “The Charity Digital Spectrum: how all charities can go further with digital” – highlights that HR software can reduce time spent on manual admin by up to 80 per cent.

Jonathan Chevalier, CEO, Tech Trust adds,

We’re pleased to welcome Breathe as a partner and look forward to working with them to help charities become more efficient. As many small organisations already benefit from using finance software, like Xero or Quickbooks, there are now HR systems available to help too. Tools – like Breathe – which have been designed for small charities with limited budgets specifically in mind.

Jonathan Richards, CEO, Breathe adds,

We have been committed to supporting charities since day one and partnering with the Tech Trust accelerates our mission to banish HR-related admin, allowing charities to focus on the more important stuff – its people.

Not only are charities pushed for time, but they face a more recent challenge of continuing to be GDPR compliant. Indeed, since May this year organisations now only have one month to handle Subject Access Requests – whereby volunteers or employees request the organisation deletes all information held on them from the system. You can imagine for an organisation where disparate systems or spreadsheets are used to store HR information, this would be a nightmare to handle. Charities should centralise HR data storage in a single, highly secure system to mitigate against the risk of data breaches.
