We exist to keep people safe from bad behaviour at work and to protect the organisations they work in.
Small to medium enterprises make a significant contribution to the economy, accounting for just less than 50% of private sector industry employment and contributing approximately 33% of private sector industry value to the economy. SMEs generally do not have access to services that they need from a governance perspective and from an employee health and well-being perspective. Unfortunately, for many people working in SMEs, a day at the office can be unpleasant.
It doesn’t have to be that way! Our Great Day@Work platform is positively disrupting how people are kept safe at work, how people access help and how organisations are protected. Our platform services SMEs and big business throughout Australia.
