Portfolio

What Is The Human Era

The first in a series of blog posts to introduce the concept of 'The Human Era' to HR professionals in Australia. The intention was to help create a shift in the perceptions, practices, processes and policies in the HR industry and also show that Subscribe-HR is about more than just software.

The Starlight Story White Paper

A paper that highlights the great work being done by this Australian charity that spent years focused on culture and values. They had won several best employer awards in 2014 and S-HR featured them as an example of the benefits of putting culture and values first.
