Applaud was founded on the belief that employee experience is everything.

The formation — back in 2008 by HCM software development experts— was focussed on a single principle: creating HCM solutions centered wholly around the employee’s need and not through the lens of HR.

Creating engaging, compelling and memorable employee experiences has always been core to our journey, from our very first Absence Calendar plug-in built for now legacy Oracle E-Business Suite, through to our latest employee experience platform.
