About People Essentials

People Essentials is a simple and effective human resource package aimed at small to medium businesses throughout Australia. For one low annual fee of only $960 + GST, you receive access to an online Client Portal which provides essential tools to assist with hiring, managing and exiting employees.

Importantly, your subscription to People Essentials includes two hours of email, phone or face-to-face support, when you need it with an HR professional, and ongoing assistance is available for subscribers at a discounted rate.
