About Breathe

Learn a little more about the team dedicated to making life easier for SMEs.

For 22 years we’ve been implementing intuitive, easy-to-use HR systems with one goal in mind: to help businesses free up time to focus on what’s important – their people.

Back in 2012, our founders, Gareth and Jonathan were struggling to find HR software that cut the mustard.

Every solution they came across was either expensive, or just too complex to use.

So, after an in-depth discussion over a (delicious) curry, Breathe was born. And it’s been making HR admin easier ever since.

Then, in 2020, Team Breathe gained a family down under as we became part of the ELMO group.
