IN THE BEGINNING – 1992
In 1992 our founder, Rob Thompson, took the opportunity to introduce “workplace relations” to Australia’s small businesses. Rob decided that after 25 years as an HR director in global businesses it was time to help small to medium business employers or what he calls “salt of the earth Australians”.
WHY DON’T YOU DO IT FOR US? – 2007
We have always insisted that compliance is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to employment management, so in 2007 we launched EI’s outsourced workforce management solutions including payroll and human resources. Today hundreds of employers around Australia rely on EI to manage all their people management and payroll needs.
DIGITAL DISRUPTION – 2013
And so, Employment Hero was born out of EI as Australia’s first all-in-one HR software and employee benefits platform. We disrupted our own business before we became the disrupted by putting our collective intellectual property into the cloud for more Australian businesses to access.
MOVING INTO THE SUBSCRIPTION ECONOMY – 2017
Over the years we have broadened our expertise across human resources, legal, migration, payroll and HR software. Making the shift away from a pay-per-product model to a subscription pricing model allows us to leverage economies of scale to deliver all of this value on-demand when you need it at a fraction of the cost of traditional service models.
At the core of everything we do are our company values. They define who we are, they guide our actions and behaviours, they influence the way we collaborate and of course, the way we serve our clients and engage with our communities.
WORK & PLAY AS ONE TEAM
We appreciate that the strongest teams foster diverse personalities, talents and skills and believe in using our experience in helping others achieve their best.
BE AMBITIOUS, BE BOLD
We act with ambition and aspire to continuously learn, grow and strive for excellence.
We challenge prevailing assumptions when warranted, and suggest better approaches enabling us to be more
SERVE OTHERS AS YOU EXPECT TO BE SERVED
We believe in serving our customers to the best of our abilities and understand their expectations by putting ourselves in their shoes.
DON’T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT!
