Complete HR & Recruitment support on speed dial
We’re not the kind of HR team that hands out cookie-cutter solutions and sends you on your way. Working really closely with the leaders and teams in your business, we’ll support you with the full suite of customised HR services and outsourced recruitment to ensure you’re hitting the target every single time.
HOW WE DO THINGS
What makes us different?
We’re driven by people & purpose
To us, HR is about people – not processes. Through getting to know the people behind your business, we’ll discover what really matters to them and help you find the best ways to motivate and inspire them in their roles.
We’re not boring HR Consultants
We understand that not everyone gets as excited about HR as we do. And that’s okay! We take on the less-exciting stuff so you can get on with the things that really matter to you and your business.
We actually give a cr#p
We’re really passionate about what we do and work hard to help you crush your goals. We also consider ourselves a part of your leadership team and only ever act in the best interests of your business.
We’re dynamic & adaptive
We don’t cookie-cut HR solutions. Instead, we really get to know you so we can deliver custom solutions that work towards your goals. We compliment your strengths with our own expertise and we scale as your business does.
We bring corporate expertise (without the suits)
We’re corporate escapees who felt it was time to take all the good stuff we’d learnt (and throw away the bad) to help businesses of all shapes and sizes compete against the big guys. That’s why we do what we do every day.
We’re your confidant
It’s lonely at the top – which is why we’re always here to chat things through. Whether you’ve got a specific problem at hand, are ready to scale your ops or want to explore new opportunities, you can rely on our expertise and discretion.
FINDING YOUR COMPETITIVE EDGE
Purple Playground’s 5Ps
Understanding the connection between your people, purpose, performance, profit and positive impact is key to discovering your competitive edge.
Using this as our framework, we’ll help you to understand how each of these components impacts and interacts with each other to not only find your competitive edge, but leverage it to create the greatest outcome.
People are more than just their measurable skills. Think emotional intelligence, culture-add and behavioural competencies. Encourage the diversity of thought and experience that each individual brings to the team.
It’s not just ‘feel good stuff’. Consciously ensuring an aligned purpose between employees and the organisation leads to increased engagement, greater discretionary effort and better business outcomes.
Leverage the intrinsic motivation of a purpose-led team to outperform your competitors. Set Objective Key Results (OKRs) to help connect the company, team and personal goals to measurable results and breed a high performance culture.
With the right people on board, aligned purpose, and increased discretionary effort, you’ll reap the rewards of lower productivity costs and increased profits.
Be a purpose led business by making decisions based on more than just profit. Be a force for good…making a real difference in the world, leaving a positive personal and business legacy.

Toni Eisenhut (nee Dickson)
Associate Director at ABA Legal Group
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.
Managing Consultant - Bidwrite
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!
Macro Mike - Business Development Manager
The team at Purple playground have added tremendous value to our business throughout the recruitment process. By taking the time to truly understand our needs and matching suitable candidates it has helped us to recruit high quality candidates. I could not recommend them more highly to any business who needs support with the recruitment process.
