Work we’ve done
BidWrite is a tender response writing, training & advisory based in Brisbane. The team at BidWrite reached out to us initially off the back of a performance management problem with a team member. After identifying and actioning a proactive HR plan with their leaders, we uncovered their real challenge – the need for a better recruitment strategy. Helping them to attract new staff, manage performance once onboarded and build leadership capability has allowed them to build a stronger presence across 3 states and become more competitive in their field. We’re proud to have been working with BidWrite for over 12 months, helping them to recruit 6 fantastic Bid Consultants who are now integral members of their team.
The Purple Playground team has been outstanding in every aspect of our interaction with them over the past six months. Their support across compliance, recruitment, systems, and culture has been invaluable to our business. Always professional, responsive and knowledgeable, I couldn’t recommend them more highly.

MOVUS is a tech company prized with creating the world’s first installed condition monitoring solution. As the team expanded, MOVUS leaders identified the need for a solid HR solution that would help drive their organisational culture. Acknowledging the benefits of outsourcing rather than hiring internally, MOVUS got in touch with our team who have since helped them with their Human Resource Information System, leadership workshops, redundancies and general HR support. These services have allowed the team to respectfully downsize their operations due to COVID-19 and a downturn in business, and helped to create a more engaged workforce through various employee and leadership workshops.
“Professional, knowledgeable, reliable, innovative and supportive. The team from Purple Playground have not just been a pleasure to work with to move our HR people development and processes forward, they have become an integral part of our business and deliver outstanding value. If you are looking for first class support from a professional HR team, you won’t find better.”

Macro Mike delivers deliciously clean treats to health-conscious people around Australia. In the beginning, their owner & founder had the common problem of trying to balance working in the business vs working on the business and recognised that they needed help setting up robust HR foundations to mitigate risk and scale the organisation sustainably. At this point, our team stepped in to help them with our proactive HR plan, as well as recruiting 7 superstar employees. This complete support package has allowed them to scale their business from a people and culture perspective, create a strong HR foundation from which to grow their people and performance, and organisational design to ensure they have the right structure in place to support continuing business growth.
Working with Purple Playground was absolutely pivotal and the best thing we could have done for our business. We were snowed under internally and were lacking compliance, and knew we needed help without needing a full-time internal HR staff. Purple Playground were awesome to work with, they mapped out exactly what we were lacking within the business and filled all our gaps seamlessly. They really helped to bring our compliance up-to-date, and even more importantly brought together our team through workshops and catchups. Our whole team absolutely grew to love Sally, Jemma, and everyone at PP as one of our own…we don’t know how we ever survived without them!

Wearthy are advocates of childhood play, dedicating their time to delivering bespoke, natural playgrounds to inspire creativity and curiosity in kids. While the leaders at Wearthy originally reached out for the HR performance suite and employee engagement program, we ended up supporting them with much more than that, including organisational design, building leadership capability, launching their new performance rhythm and more. After their initial project work, the team saw the amazing benefit of our proactive approach and joined our HR Plan on an ongoing basis, allowing us to build strong rapport with their team and turn reactive people processes into proactive, real world actions.
Purple Playground is fantastic to work with and has helped us grow our team effectively this year. Sally, Marija, Jemma & Cara have been integral to our planning and management of people this year.
