by Kay Aloha Villamor in May 18th, 2023

HR DataHub, a London, UK-based HRtech business that helps companies to benchmark themselves against competitors, raised £1.4 million in funding.

The investment was from the MEIF Proof of Concept and Early Stage Fund, which is managed by Mercia and is part of the Midlands Engine Investment Fund, Mercia's EIS funds, the Angel Co-Fund, and private investors.

The funding will enable the business to further enhance the platform and triple the size of its team from 10 to 30 in the next 18 months.

HR Datahub's platform enables organizations to compare themselves to others in the same industry or same location on almost every aspect of their HR performance - including pay and benefits, retention and recruitment, employee engagement, and diversity and inclusion.

It is now used by 160 organizations including Siemens, Euro Garages, EDF, Network Rail, and Marks & Spencer, and aims to increase customer numbers to over 500 within the next five years. Annual recurring revenue has been doubling each year and is currently over £650,000.

Alexa Grellet, COO, said: "The world of work has never been more complex, so it is important that organisations make decisions based on accurate data. At HR Datahub our mission is to give them the analysis and the insights they need. The funding will enable us to add a new level of sophistication to the platform and roll it out to an even wider audience."
