enableHR was born in 2006, when co-founder Campbell “Cam” Fisher was working at a specialist law firm stuffed full of expensive lawyers (he was one of them). He knew that running a business while complying with complicated workplace regulation wasn’t easy, especially for small and medium-sized businesses. While big clients with really big problems were happy to pay for expensive lawyers to solve those kinds of problems, smaller companies just couldn’t afford the same kind of support. He became frustrated at the firm’s inability to support these smaller clients and came up with the idea of using technology as a way to solve the very similar challenges faced by all businesses, but solve them in a fundamentally different way.
So you could say enableHR was born out of frustration, and founded on a commitment to make managing HR and legal compliance simple, accessible and affordable.
We’ve come a long way since then. The law firm is still there, as are the expensive lawyers (Cam’s still one of them), and they still look after big clients with really big problems. But now they share offices with a lively bunch of creatives, designers, software developers, product managers and programmers, and get to pour 30 years of top-tier legal experience into making everything inside enableHR legally bulletproof.
We know that a precondition of creating a great employee experience and being an employer of choice is to get the fundamentals of compliance right. Get it right, automate as much of it as you can, and you get a happier, more productive workplace.
Of course, none of this would be possible without the right people…
