About WorkBright


 

The Story

Founded in 2013 in Boulder, Colorado, the founders of WorkBright set out to change the experience of how companies onboard their workforce. Our vision is to create simple and intuitive HR technology that serves the needs of today’s rapidly hiring workforce. The need for a solution came from David’s first-hand experience of dealing with the challenges of hiring hundreds of staff each summer as part of his other business, Avid4 Adventure, which provides outdoor adventure camps for kids. As they grew to over 250 employees in several states, managing the hiring and onboarding process became a nightmare. Recognizing that not only was this pain common across industries, but that existing software solutions failed to recognize the unique needs of these employers, WorkBright was born to address the pain.

In 2014, WorkBright was one of 13 companies of over 1,000 applicants selected to participate in the Techstars accelerator program in Boulder.
