Who we are
We are an innovation driven organisation that creates supportive relationships between companies and their employees. We believe in creating environments and workplaces where individuals are their whole selves and feel enriched. Our values of integrity, trust, equity and respect are reflected through the culture of our office, the services we provide and the clients we support.
SeventeenHundred was founded in 2013, born out of the idea that people work more effectively when they feel valued and recognised for who they are, their unique talents and the life experiences they bring to work. We recognise that the workplace is ever-evolving, so we are in a constant cycle of research and development to ensure our products and services are relevant.
The name SeventeenHundred is 24-hour time for 5pm: the traditional time when people would leave the workplace for the day. In the past, it was a distinct barrier that used to exist between work and the rest of life. In today’s technological age, this barrier is hazy, even non-existent. Instead, what it represents is that crucial point where work and life meet – where work impacts on a person’s family, health, culture and identity and vice versa, where one’s personal life and identity shapes what value they bring to the table. It’s at this point that SeventeenHundred can help companies support their people as they navigate that balance and create a culture of diversity and inclusiveness.
