Creating HR technology that employees can’t live without

Applaud is built on the belief that employees should have the same exceptional technology experiences inside the world of work, as they expect outside the world of work, as consumers.

Decades of HR software experience

Applaud was founded in 2008 by Ivan Harding and Duncan Casemore, driven by a mission to create HR technology that focused completely on the employee. Both Ivan and Duncan began their decades of HR software experience as part of Oracle’s HR development team, giving them an in-depth, unique understanding of integrating enterprise HR technology.

We are consumers

We are consumers, just like everyone else. To bring the worlds of consumer and employee technology closer together, we are purposefully pioneering, opening up the latest innovations and consumer tech trends like AI and chatbots to organizations. The way we work is output orientated and we strive to prove ourselves every day.

Our people put your people first

We have teams across the globe passionately committed to creating consumer-grade HR technology. We’re all gadget-obsessed, but people always come first, technology second, because it’s consumer expectations that set our technology standards.
