It has taken over 20 years to assemble the direct team and support network that drives our business.
Founded by Mike Beeley in 2016 after operating businesses in the Employer marketing sector since 1992, the team has worked together continuously for the past two decades helping Australian organisations understand and communicate their EVP and Employer Brand in the APAC region.
We maintain a broad and deep network of external specialists such as photographers, videographers and digital developers, so we can call on the perfect skills for each project, both locally and further afield.
Global organisations often require global approach for EVP and Employer Brand development, so we have been called on to either lead the global project from Australia, or work with our global network and deliver insights and strategy for Australia. As part of a global network of Employer Brand specialists, we are able to provide representation across the globe to communicate with local audiences or returning expats, as well as ongoing in-country capability to ensure employer brand consistency for growing Australian organisations or multi-national companies.
