What is Employment Hero?

A complete HR management solution for small to medium businesses.

We empower SMEs by providing automated solutions for employee management and engagement, payroll and employee benefits. Over 5,000 Australian businesses use Employment Hero and together we collectively manage over 200,000+ employees.

Why Employment Hero.

We exist to make employment easier and more rewarding for everyone.

Most business owners and managers are passionate about growing a great business, but struggle to navigate the legalities and admin associated with hiring and managing staff. Employees are attracted to working in dynamic smaller businesses, but often consider doing so a compromise. We bridge the gap by making it easier to hire and manage staff and by providing a world-class benefits program that can rival any corporate.
