We make employment easier and more valuable for everyone.

Our story.

Ben Thompson witnessed the devastation of poorly managed employment. Instead of facing it alone, he imagined a singular solution: a unified cloud platform scalable for businesses globally.

From this vision, Employment Hero was born - an all-encompassing HR, payroll, and benefits platform designed to power more productive teams and make employment easier and more valuable for everyone.

Better life at work for everyone.

After working with 300,000+ businesses across the globe, we saw firsthand the need for a tool that supports employers in attracting best talent and helps their teams fight the rising cost of living, gain control over their finances, and make work more rewarding.

Enter Swag: a world-first superapp that redefines the way we work, save and get paid.

Results that speak for themselves.

Since our inception in 2014, we've had enormous growth (100% YoY), reaching unicorn status in 2022.

Our values.

We serve

We believe in a better future of work. We believe we owe it to society to strive for excellence in everything we do. We’re people focused. We recognise human needs and work hard to create solutions that change life for the better.

We are one team

We know we’re at our best when we work together. We champion diverse personalities, talents and skills. We believe in sharing our strengths and lifting each other up.

We are bold and ambitious

We challenge prevailing assumptions and question industry norms. We’re always looking for a better way. Our perfect sentence starts with ‘What if..?’

We invent

We’re inventors, creating solutions that bring about meaningful change. We celebrate failure as well as success. We break things, take risks, and push higher in search of big ideas and innovative new ways.

Own it

We take ownership of delivering our personal best every day. We don’t always have the answers, but we own the problem and back ourselves to find a solution.

Life at Employment Hero.

We're a global bunch, cherishing diverse perspectives that fuel innovation towards our BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal). We encourage each other to work in ways that allow us to bring our best selves to work.
