StaffCircle, a Leicestershire, UK-based company which has developed a novel HR software platform, secured £250k in funding.
Backers included the MEIF Proof of Concept & Early Stage Fund, managed by Mercia and part of the Midlands Engine Investment Fund.
The equity investment will allow the company to create five new jobs, add further software features and launch a sales and marketing campaign.
Founded in March 2017 by Mark Seemann, an expert in communications and business workflow systems, who has previously built and sold three software businesses, StaffCircle provides a platform that allows clients to improve communication and feedback between employees in different location, providing them with access to training, tasks and contacts within the company.
The software breaches the ‘digital divide’ between office-based staff and those working at home or on site – who often miss out on official communications – by operating across multiple channels which do not rely on employees having access to the internet or email.
