Our Story


We are a team made up of the best employment lawyers, HR specialists, payroll officers, and financial analysts in the country. With  decades of experience in HR, we thought ‘there’s got to be a better way to manage HR processes and engage employees.


And so, in 2013 Employment Hero was born as Australia’s first All-in-one HR Platform, combining Employee Benefits, HR Software, Payroll, Services, Compliance and more.


Employment Hero aims to become the employment platform of choice for employers and employees in Australia and beyond, By providing free, easy-to-use HR software that employers love to use, and access to far greater benefits for all employees.


These are the things behind what motivates us to be the best in the business…

We’re game changers and inventors

We’re not interested in following outdated processes. Instead, we are inventors and game changers, challenging existing assumptions and creating more efficient ways to get things done.

We’re team players

We’re a diverse mix of personalities, talents, skills and experience. Together we’re an unbreakable team of players, all working towards the same goals.

We aim for customer service excellence

In line with our Vision & Purpose, we are committed to offering the best-designed solution and service for customers combined with the best discounts for their staff.

We’re creative and imaginative

We never stop imagining what it might be like to be in our client’s shoes and tailor the best service to meet those unique needs.


Everyone’s opinion matters. There’s 95 of us working across Australia, from our head office in Sydney to Perth. However, every day our entire team shares what we’re working on. And, when someone exhibits excellence, we reward it and share it with the team in our 909 meetings.


If someone can’t make it, we’ll live stream it online, because we’re not a 9-5 office. We’re flexible about where we work and when we do it, because at the end of the day we’re about results and getting the job done.


Our team of rockstars don’t follow stupid rules. Instead, they set about changing the wheel, making processes more efficient through creativity and technology every day.

By setting goals SMART, they know where they fit into the big picture. Our team is the reason we’re growing so fast, they don’t settle with what they know. They push the boundaries and think outside the box. Extending their knowledge through courses, at ‘lunch and learn’ sessions and with mentoring, they’re the drivers who aren’t willing to settle.

They’re self starters, who aren’t afraid to go the extra mile.

We’re Rockstars
Are you?


We are backed by decades of experience. Which means that beyond the platform, we are also there to lead our clients through the legal and administrative challenges that come with being an employer.


We’re not blowing our own trumpet either. Others think we’re pretty cool too – we’ve placed in the top 10 of BRW Australia’s Most Innovative Companies 2015 and were accredited a best employer in Aon Hewitt Best Employers in 2013.
