Our Origins

Where it all began

Instigated by a media and tech company’s desire for a one-platform employee engagement and HR management solution that met their diverse needs, helloFriday was born.
Founded collaboratively in 2020 by the CEO, Finance Director and Head of People at FMG (Friday Media Group), helloFriday truly is an HR platform built for the employee, powered by the employee.

During the last 5 years, a combination of external shifts in technology, culture and the economy were starting to impact our ability to control internal operations and productivity within our business. Our existing service providers were not allowing us to effectively manage the impact these changes had on employee engagement, management and retention, but critically strategic alignment within our business.

Ensuring all our staff have a complete understanding of the goals and their individual and collective impact, as well as real time contribution to achieving associated objectives, is critical to success.

We needed a platform that wasn’t just built to service our core HR needs, but fused these functions with employee engagement to deliver greater organisational alignment for our business.

We built helloFriday out of a burning need to solve a genuine problem that we were experiencing and that 10,000s of employers globally are experiencing due to a workplace that has changed more since 2020 than it had in decades prior.
