With locations spreading from the Cotswolds to Brighton, Brakspear offer something for everyone, whether it’s a quick drink, something to eat or an overnight stay, each pub offers something different.

As Brakspear’s managed estate grew, the company’s need to control wage costs increased. The company were in need of the better management of labour costs and smarter deployment of staff against demand.
Brakspear started using Selima in early 2014 to take control of their staff scheduling and HR systems, tightly integrated with Selima’s payroll managed service.
Selima’s software empowered Managers to take complete ownership and control of their site’s labour cost for the first time. They were given real time analysis of forecast wage costs and budgets, all vital aspects of workforce management. Especially in an environment that faces challenges such as increases in the living wage, rising costs of business rates, high staff turnover and competitive pressures.
They found the system easy to use for both general managers, staff, and head office. But most importantly, it allowed managers to reforecast depending on weather, events or special bookings.
