With each equity plan it administers, Smartequity has one objective in mind: to align the goals of employers and employees so that organisations can attract, motivate and retain highly capable and engaged employees.
And with 70% of new business stemming from referrals, success for their clients is something the Smartequity team has achieved in abundance.
The Smartequity team understands that an effective employee share plan is about far more than the plan itself. Engagement at every level of the organisation – from the board to the workforce at large - is critical to the success of the plan, and where the Smartequity way makes the difference.
Smartequity is certified by ASIC and carries an Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL) which demands a superior level of accuracy and compliance. Over and above its diligent administering of different plan types, Smartequity works to engage, educate and empower eligible employees with tailored seminars, handbooks and ongoing support so that employees feel confident in participating and a sense of ownership in successful outcomes for the business.
In short, maximum employee participation is all in the communication. As CEO and Smartequity founder, John Day puts it, “if employees don’t understand what they’re doing, they don’t trust and, therefore, don’t engage.”
It is this focus on customer-centric communication that first attracted Smartgroup to the former Trinity Management Group (TMG), now trading as Smartequity. Already established as a leader in administering employee remuneration benefits, Smartgroup identified the opportunity to expand its services to employers and acquired selected assets of TMG in January 2016.
