About us

Launched in 2018 by our Director, Simone Pickering, The People & Culture Office is a Kalgoorlie based human resources (HR) consulting company that specialises in developing partnerships with progressive organisations.

Simone had 1 core goal in mind when she launched The People & Culture Office.⁠ ⁠ She wanted to help business owners and leaders build successful businesses through contemporary people initiatives.⁠ ⁠

Then this amazing thing happened, she was able to bring her brand of HR to business owners – to redefine how HR is delivered. To create value and make a positive impact to their operations. To establish the link for them between business strategy and HR initiatives.

We’re not your run-of-the-mill HR consulting firm. We’re a passionate bunch of people who genuinely believe that happy employees make for thriving businesses. From the moment you step into our virtual office or chat with us on the phone, you’ll feel the warmth and dedication we bring to the table.

Whether you’re a small startup trying to find the right talent, a mid-sized company looking to optimise your HR processes, or a large enterprise seeking to build a culture that fosters growth, we’ve got tailored solutions for all your HR needs.

Oh, and did we mention we are all about collaboration? We don’t just swoop in, fix things, and disappear. Nope, that’s not our style. We believe in working side by side with your team, getting to know your unique business needs, and crafting HR strategies that align perfectly with your goals. And we’re not just about theories and concepts. Nope, we’re all about getting down to the nitty-gritty, rolling up our sleeves, and turning ideas into action. Together, we’ll create a workplace that will have your competition green with envy.
