The Breathe Challenge

Breathe’s simple people management and payroll solution was created to help Aussie small businesses save time and manage their people the right way. But in these times we recognise a different kind of support is required to help small business get back to business – which is why we’re launching Big for Small.

We hope that this initiative will go a long way to bringing life back into the small business sector.

The premise of the initiative is simple: We’re giving our employees $20 a day to spend at a local small business – and we’re challenging other big businesses to get involved.

6 ways the location of your business can impact productivity

Has your business embraced the rise of remote working, hot-desking and flexi-time? You're definitely in good company: 67% of Australians are working from home.. And this number is definitely not getting smaller.  A flexible culture is great for morale, trust and job satisfaction - there's no doubt that having one is absolutely worth it. But, amongst the hustle and bustle of modern-day working, it's important to keep in mind the huge importance of office location. Just because your staff aren't necessarily in the office 5 days a week nowadays, doesn't mean you should give your location less thought.
