Employment Hero backed by OneVentures, is a human resources and people management platform empowering employers in the new world of work.

In response to COVID-19, Employment Hero developed new features and tools to complement their core HR service to equip employers with the essentials to navigate the crisis, including providing remote management of workforces, information on COVID-19 related legal obligations, collaboration tools and workflows to support single touch payroll and JobKeeper. These new features helped create more jobs where the company expanded its development team from 22 to 70.

Dr Michelle Deaker, Managing Partner of OneVentures and Chair of Employment Hero said “OneVentures is exceptionally proud of Employment Hero and the services they have provided to the Australian working community. The CEO Ben Thompson’s vision has seen the Employment Hero team motivated to help our SME businesses, solving real problems for them in managing in a COVID-19 world and as a result they have turned the pandemic crisis into an opportunity”.
