Our big why

Today’s organisations are struggling to meet the needs of their people and their business. That’s where we come in.

Finding the right balance

We help teams ranging from 10 to 10,000 to find common goals between their people and their business.

What happens when more than 30% of your workforce is unavailable?

An enterprise with 15,000 employees was struggling with high turnover, secondments and WorkCover – including nearly 700 of their employees on leave for mental health reasons.

Addressing the real and urgent needs of the workforce, we created a balanced roster that addressed employee well-being while still improving the bottom line.

Data that gives you the confidence to act.

We transform complex data into real solutions for the whole of your business:

Innovative rosters

Flexible work models

Employee engagement

Resource optimisation

Wages and award compliance

Fatigue, health & safety

12.5% of job leavers quote “poor work arrangements, hours or pay”
