About Inject

Our vision is to educate every business leader on what it takes to hire the best talent in the market.

Inject is a Melbourne-based business, working nationally with the small-medium business market.  We partner with a range of industries and roles, but the one commonality around the people we hire is that true value is in getting that right person, as opposed to simply an impressive resume.  We mostly work with businesses with under 150 employees and no HR department.  However, on occasion we will work with businesses who have a progressively thinking HR manager with aligned values.

Inject was originally founded in 2013 by Tommy Sim, who is also the founder of our partner company Beyond HR Consulting.  In January 2015, Emma Teale joined the business and both Emma and Tommy saw complete alignment in approach and values between the two of them.  Emma has now stepped into the role of Managing Director at Inject, whilst Tommy is helping to grow Beyond HR, as well as other opportunities to help our clients.

We are very proud that 87% of our business comes from referrals and that one third of clients pro-actively refer us to new clients without even being asked.  We don’t mind where new clients come from, what we do care about is that there is an alignment of values and perspective.  To be honest, we are not for everyone.  But if you do think we are talking the same language, we would love to hear from you.

OUR CORE VALUES

These are the values that we live and die by.  We welcome you to catch us out if ever you believe we aren’t living these every day.

  1. Pursue emotional intelligence. First, know that emotions drive behaviour.  Second, understand why you do what you do and why others do what they do.  Third, behave accordingly.
  2. Seek first to understand. They say the person in the room with an opinion is the weakest one.  Understand the situation first and base your decisions on the facts.
  3. Display candour. There is so much BS out there.  Be honest with yourself and honest with others.  People can take more than what you think, but also remember the first value when doing so.
  4. Be a good human. Show the best version of yourself – but be yourself. You’ll get less wrinkles that way.
  5. 1 + 1 = 3. A scattered effort is a wasted effort.  Focus on a few combined actions to deliver a superior outcome.

OUR PEOPLE

Emma Teale

Hi, thanks for your curiosity to find out a little more about me. This must be something we have in common… curiosity. It’s rare when you find your calling – but I have, and it’s what drives my passion to help candidates, clients and my team to realise their true potential. I like to keep things real and am OBSESSED with human behaviour and understanding why people do the things they do and behave in a certain way…pretty helpful I think for the line of work I’m in. I also support an incredible team who share the same values. I’ve worked in large corporates for ages – whether it’s internal recruitment or executive roles in agencies – but it’s pretty safe to say recruitment has been my whole world. That’s apart from waitressing in Canada where I learnt two things that I’m a terrible at; waitressing and the art of apologising. So after corporate life I went out on my own and loved it, had great returns and discovered that really I can do things the way I’ve always wanted by being honest and calling it as it is… but I wasn’t truly satisfied until I met someone like minded who shares my values and is in it for the right reasons. That’s when I joined Inject.

It’s your kiwi girl here, the one you will hear before you see. I moved to Melbourne after finishing my Commerce degree majoring in Human Resources and minoring in Criminology at the University of Otago and it is fair to say it has been one massive, exciting and most of all epic adventure!!

After joining Inject, I’ve absolutely loved getting to know everyone from my team to our candidates and most importantly all of our awesome clients! I love variety, it is the spice of life they say, and I believe that the different roles, industries and people that we get to work with every day keep our lives very interesting!

My favourite part of our role is the feeling when you get the absolute perfect match and you can see that you have helped a company find the exact piece they were missing! I’m so lucky to be able to grow my career and learn skills from a company who has such strong values and really stick to them!

I’ve been fascinated by people’s behaviours since learning to work a checkout in my grandparents’ family grocer as a ten-year-old. My favourite reward for doing an hours’ labour used to be a Drumstick ice-cream and I guess you could say that’s remained a common denominator throughout my working life!

Living in Melbourne since I first visited all those years ago has always been on my long long list of goals, and joining Inject to work with such a gorgeous bunch of individuals who share my passion for juicy conversations, investigating intriguing behaviours and executing inspiring strategies (not to mention food and good times!) feels like a dream come true. I love being able to walk into work every day, thinking about how I’m going to help the dynamic businesses we get to partner with to find someone amazing to join their team.

Maybe you’ve been to a restaurant and seen a quirky stranger shamelessly take a million photos from every possible angle (including but not limited to standing on the chair), and only two hours later do they finally decide which photo to post? Well, that person was probably me. It may seem like a lot of effort but as our Digital Content Producer, I spend a lot of time wondering how to get people to like me (Facebook), to find people to connect with me (LinkedIn), to have people watch me (Youtube), and to get people to listen to me (Twitter). Frankly speaking, I think a non-egotistical social media expert just doesn’t exist – I’m kidding! Underneath all the fussing and really bad jokes, it’s really about keeping the finger on the pulse. What really excites me is the constant search for inspiration, the discovery of answers amongst all the analytics and the creativity around perfecting content like a work of art. At the end of the day, I am a storyteller and sharing a message to those who can truly benefit … that’s the bottom line of what I love to do.

Tommy Sim

Hello and thanks for visiting our site!  I founded this company back in 2013 and what I find most amazing are the businesses we have helped transform into a company they had only ever dreamed of!  Fast forward to today and I am even more passionate about helping business leaders build high performing teams than ever.  I am happy to talk with you about my experience and qualifications (I know you know how to use Google though – it’s basically me and some doctor from Texas), but I feel like it’s less about that and more about what our team can do for you today – reminiscing on a Friday with a glass of vino is enjoyable, but making a real impact on a Monday morning with a strong latte is inspiring.  I love to see the looks of relief, excitement and confidence on the faces of the business owners when they start to see real success.  I am just as excited to see our team here share the same passion as I do.  So, I encourage you to check us out and if you think there could be alignment then please get in touch!
