Bradley Batchelder

Chief People Officer

As Chief People Officer at Applause, Bradley is passionate about building inclusive cultures, embracing innovation and creating memorable employee experiences. He has helped Applause earn its reputation as a high-growth company by cultivating a diverse culture centered on a PRIDE (Passionate and focused, Respectful communication, In it together, Deliver Applause, Embrace change) culture code. And he has been instrumental in building and acquiring an impressive team of top-notch talent at Applause. Bradley’s efforts have paid off year after year as Applause is consistently recognized as a top place to work both locally and globally by organizations like Inc. Magazine, Boston Business Journal and the Boston Globe.

Along with building a culture of collaboration, Bradley makes supporting Applause’s surrounding community a priority. He spearheads Applause’s charitable initiatives, many of which – like the annual Back to School Backpack Drive, Thanksgiving Food Drive and Hope for the Holidays gift donations – are in partnership with the United Way of Tri-County. Applause’s volunteer and fundraising efforts have been recognized by the United Way with awards including the Live United Award and the Good Neighbor Award.

Prior to joining Applause, Bradley held roles in recruiting and talent acquisition at Monster and Enterprise Search.
