Being awarded the Gold Medal in 2018 HRD’s Employer of Choice Awards (1-99 employees) category is a tremendous achievement for intelliHR. For a company that has grown its workforce significantly in the last 12 months, to be recognised for the things we are passionate about is heart-warming.
intelliHR view staff development, inclusion, diversity and recognition as critical to our business’s success. “It’s a proud moment for all of our staff to be recognised for the investment we make into professional development and training, inclusion and into the diversity of the business,” says
CEO, Robert Bromage. “I’m proud that our whole team is being recognised for that because it really is all about collaboration at the end of the day.”
In addition to the HRD Employer of Choice Gold Medal, intelliHR received top performing accolades across four areas including: Training & Professional Development, Diversity & Inclusion, Communication and Reward & Recognition.
As a business, we are committed to staff training and development and supporting our people to be responsible for their own continual professional development. intelliHR is invested in the growth of their people, offering a $3,000 per staff member training allocation. Exposing our staff to broader experiences and learnings, even outside of Australia is supported. “Wherever we can encourage people to travel to learn and experience different thinking overseas, then we want to do that. That feeds into our commitment to diversity and different thinking and building a successful business based on those values,” says Bromage.
At intelliHR we focus on people’s individual talents, no matter what gender, generation or culture they may be. “It doesn’t matter where they’re from, it’s what they’re capable of,” says Bromage.
The company maintains a very flat structure in the business, with workspaces that are open and collaborative. “We are all about open door policies or more importantly – no doors at all wherever possible,” Bromage explains.
Diversity is recognising everyone’s talents for what they are, and then building those up and leveraging them for everyone else’s benefit.
Recognition is another area of focus for the company. “I’m really proud of the way we manage recognition here at intelliHR. We use a peer recognition system which ensures our people get the recognition they deserve both by utilising technology and then by bringing it back to a human level and celebrating the wins together, at a monthly business meeting,” says Bromage.
intelli people are recognised for their individual contribution to the overall success of the business and it’s a very open and supportive place to work.
The future state of intelliHR’s workforce is all about keeping up with the fast pace of the business and understanding the potential challenges that might bring for our staff. This includes the ability to adapt and grow at the same rate as the business. Bromage says: “It’s not easy to go from 15 to 30 and then possibly up to 60 staff, quite quickly. It comes back to culture and how do you create and shape that culture. We want to maintain a culture which celebrates individual talent and one where staff are supported to innovate, collaborate and create – together. We need to do that to support our customers in the best possible way.
“intelliHR is your place to be valued for your individual talents and trusted to innovate, collaborate and create.” It’s about giving people the right tools to excel and then allowing them to come together and contribute to a common goal which is ultimately the overall success of the business, and very happy customers.
