Huler, an England-based HR tech company whose platform has attracted a host of blue-chip clients within its first year, raised £2 million in funding.
The investment was from Mercia's EIS funds, the MEIF Proof of Concept & Early Stage Fund, which is managed by Mercia and part of the Midlands Engine Investment Fund, and private investors.
With this funding, Huler will enable to further develop its employee experience platform and create at least 12 new jobs in the year ahead.
Huler acts as a "launchpad," bringing together different programs, apps, and content that employees require within a slick user interface that provides easy access and improves productivity.
Nicky Holand, CEO of Huler, said: "With organizations working hard to retain talent, improving the employee experience is a real priority. By bringing consumer-grade technology to the workplace, Huler aims to be the world's most engaging and intuitive employee engagement platform. This is an exciting time for us in our mission to revolutionize the future of work, and we are pleased to welcome Mercia on board to support us in our goals."
The business was backed from an early stage by serial entrepreneur Gareth Mobley, whose Stoke-based, tech-enabled fenestration company DW3 Products Group was sold to Masonite International in 2018, and who is now Huler's Executive Chair. Huler currently employs 53 staff.
