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 emotionally intelligent leaders of 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.
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 vision is to educate every business owner on what it takes to hire the best talent in the market.
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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Be a good human. Show the best version of yourself – but be yourself. You’ll get less wrinkles that way.
- 1 + 1 = 3. A scattered effort is a wasted effort. Focus on a few combined actions to deliver a superior outcome.
Tommy Sim, Managing Director
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!

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.
Connor Farnell, Talent Aquisition Specialist
WA born and bred (yes, I am a tragic Freo supporter). I have always wanted to move over to the big scary eastern states to chase a good opportunity, and some good coffee…
When it comes down to it, I have always had a passion for psychology and human behaviour because it has allowed me to understand people and what makes them tick. This interest has led me to the business world – where I am using this passion to solve real world problems. The problem: why is the printer always jammed. Just kidding, the problem is how we can get good people into growing companies. It’s just a bonus that I get to do this with a bunch of people who are as geeky at understanding how people work as I am.
Emma Fan (BQ), Digital Content Producer
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.
