Since 2009, our Co-Founder Ciaran Strachan worked with several SMEs in various sectors and noticed Fair Work and Safety Compliance were:
1. The biggest issues keeping small and medium businesses up at night,
2. Experiencing a shortage of appropriately qualified and experienced professionals supplying Fair Work and Safety software and services,
3. Not being serviced to the satisfaction of the owners by the providers that did exist in these sectors,
4. Not being led or managed by the Australian legislature, Legal, Human Resources and Safety professions and software sector with the end user in mind…..”the employees and employer.” Rather this approach was disjointed and confusing.
Consequently, this worried Ciaran so much that he shut down his previous company and, while being a stay at home Dad, he decided to complete an MBA specialising in Human Resource Management. During 2015-2016 Ciaran spoke to owners, lawyers and accountants and asked one simple question……
What would would you like me to provide you so you CAN sleep at night?.
His research concluded owners wanted the following three things:
1. Bundles for small (1-20 employees) to medium business that supply both software and services at a reasonable price allowing our specialists to service clients anywhere, anytime. And that these were to be supplied and supported by appropriate software AND experienced AND qualified separate Fair Work and Safety Specialists.
2. Monthly presentations on hot topics, legislative changes and anything relevant to Fair Work and Safety that an owner/employer and potentially employees would like summarised by an appropriate and credible expert.
3. A safe place for owners to chat to other owners and experts with various specialisations and not generalists pretending to be specialists.
