About us

The People & Culture Office is a Kalgoorlie based human resources (HR) consulting company that specialises in developing partnerships with Small and Medium Enterprises (SME).

With our capabilities in enhancing people, strategy, and culture we lead local Goldfields organisations, and the wider Australian business community, to build greater employee efficiency, retention & commitment.

The People & Culture Office offers a bespoke human resource service. Our services are designed to help SMEs achieve a competitive advantage by aligning strategy with people & culture. We aren’t a cookie cutter, one size fits all service, we will work with each business to identify areas to build culture, enhance performance and develop policies to achieve their organisational goals.

The brainchild of Simone Pickering, a human resource professional with over 14 years experience and a Professional Member of the Australian HR Institute (AHRI), The People & Culture Office was created as a response to the change Simone wanted to see in the approach to the management of people & culture; a focus on building the capacity of the business through an inclusive and valued workforce. Throughout her career spanning the Local Government, Mining and Not-For-Profit sectors Simone identified that many small – medium enterprises required HR support but didn’t necessarily have the requirement for a dedicated person employed within their business. The People & Culture Office aims to embed the skills and knowledge once only the domain of large organisations into SME’s within the Goldfields Esperance region.
