How Coraggio's strategic guidance, helped this human resource firm take a holistic business approach

People Smartz provides specialised Human Resources Services to businesses, specifically working with business leaders who believe people provide them with the greatest path towards recognising their businesses potential for success.

Our task is to assist to identify, develop and realise that potential.

In Australia, when people mention “HR”, they think of “compliance”. We speak of “compliance” differently to our competitors. For them, it describes the limits of their role with their clients and the limits they force on their clients.

However, for People Smartz, compliance addresses “societies minimum expectation” for employers. The business leaders we work with recognise the road to success is much broader than just meeting ‘minimum expectations”.

Once all ‘minimum expectations”, are met our role is to facilitate your business’ optimum potential.

Reasons for choosing Coraggio

Coraggio was an obvious next step for me following 10 years in business, it was time to change things up and progressively challenge myself and my business. The format of an Advisory Board, with regular meetings and structure, provides that challenge and accountability.

How we use Coraggio

Whilst my membership is in early days, I have already recognised the board meeting format and the networking opportunities valuable.

The verdict

5 reasons why I value Coraggio:

  1. Sounding board on where the business is going
  2. Others have better ideas/experiences or background than myself
  3. It stimulates thinking, planning and strategy
  4. It potentially opens new business opportunities; and
  5. I receive honest, sometimes hard but honest feedback.
