Our mission statement

The company was founded in 2005 when employment lawyer Jon Curtis had a vision: “To create an online work environment that promotes creativity and productivity and enables companies to grow and succeed because they’re able to focus on the things they do best.” 

We have learned that the solution has to be simple – that’s why we focus on ‘all the best bits’ of HR software, delivering those key areas with excellence. 

From day one, myhrtoolkit has been built from the bottom up, with improvements based on feedback from customers and enriched by employment law. It’s the success of our customers that brings our story to life; they inspire us every day to keep creating the best and most innovative HR software possible.
