Small Business Award sponsored by Envisage HR Solutions: The Proven Group

October 18, 2023 BY

The team at The Proven Group believe that people are the powerhouse behind great businesses and are passionate about helping their clients unlock the full potential of their workforce.

The Proven Group, a leading provider of comprehensive people and culture solutions for small and medium-sized enterprises, strives to help businesses unlock the full potential of their workforce. It manages the entire employee lifecycle spanning from recruitment to employee exit, allowing its clients to focus on their core business operations.

The business provides human resources, health and safety, industrial relations, recruitment, and resume writing services to employers and job seekers from its locations in Geelong, Ballarat, and Melbourne and serves clients Australia-wide.

The business uses technology to ensure compliance with the Fair Work Act and Modern Awards, keeping its experts free to engage with its clients. As part of an international HR alliance, The Proven Group also provides localized services to businesses who have international operations.

The Proven Group’s personalized service and attention to detail have already resulted in the business being the winner of multiple business awards. And as the recipient of this year’s Small Business Award, sponsored by Envisage HR Solutions, the business has another to add to its collection.

The Small Business Award celebrates companies that are operating with the equivalent of less than 21 full-time employees. “The Proven Group has grown from a home-based resume writing service to a strategic HR and training partner for business,” judge Chris Davis said. “We were impressed with their highly engaged leadership team and how learning and continual improvement appear baked into their culture.”

The Proven Group boasts a large catalogue of resources and short courses to aid in the professional development of its clients, helping them achieve a healthy balance of vision, purpose, productivity, and performance. Offering both in-person and virtual programs, these courses range from leadership and management training to business growth training.

With its core team of 16 staff members, The Proven Group has grown by more than 300 per cent in the past 12 months, aided by the business’s collaborative partnerships with more than 30 trainers nationally. The Proven Group has also been recognized as a training partner for the Franchise Council of Australia and delivers programs through the Certified Franchise Executive Program.
