Myhrtoolkit was born 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 was built from the bottom up, working more or less entirely on feedback from customers and creating our software in a manner enriched by employment law.
Today, the vision of the brand reflects what it did in 2005 and its the success of our customers who bring our story to life. They inspire us every day to keep creating the best and most innovative HR software possible.
Still based in Sheffield and with a workforce of 18, we support over 1000 SMEs nationwide and over 55,000 employees subscribe to our service.
Jon Curtis was instrumental in setting up myhrtoolkit as a tool initially offered to Ironmonger Curtis clients. As the application’s functionality was seen to of benefit to more than just a select number of companies, it was opened up to the the market place.
Jon’s background is in Employment Law, having been a partner in Ironmonger Curtis for 11 years. This has meant that myhrtoolkit has always been based on a solid understanding of UK employment regulations.
Bob Teasdale joined the firm in 2012, and has overseen the expansion and strengthening of myhrtoolkit through a period of strong and sustained growth.
Bob hasn’t always been involved in the HR industry, having previously worked as a Recruitment Business Manager and held less perilous roles as a policeman and lifeguard.
Kit Barker has had a long association with myhrtoolkit, becoming Technical Director in 2014. Kit’s background is in developing successful Software as a Service platforms, with a strong focus on infrastructure and application security.
As well as his own hands-on programming with native PHP and frameworks such as Laravel, Lumen and Zend, he leads the development team in innovation and extending the myhrtoolkit application.
