We are delighted to announce that Stephanie Reuss and Victoria Stuart from Beam recruitment will travel from Melbourne to speak at the event. Stephanie and Victoria are the co-founders of online recruitment company Beam Australia.
Beam connects highly qualified and experienced individuals seeking flexible work, with businesses seeking their skills. Beam only provides flexible roles, on a contract or permanent part-time basis in school hours or 1-4 long days per week.
Beam was born when Stephanie and Victoria recognised the pain of modern work-life imbalance faced by many employees as well as the difficulty many organisations face trying to find great talent for a professional team. They saw a need to champion workplace flexibility, along with the opportunity to facilitate connections between organisations seeking great talent and people wanting to continue developing worthwhile professional careers in the context of a less punishing working schedule.
A lack of work-life balance is the #1 and #2 cause of anxiety in Women and Men respectively between the ages of 30 and 40. This has substantial consequences for employees and companies alike.
Beam's mission is:
- To lead the way for Australian Businesses to embrace sustainable, flexible working
- To mobilise and harness the expertise and skills of the hidden workforce
- To increase the participation and impact of women in the Australian workforce
Stephanie and Victoria will talk about their inspiring careers and the events which led them to take the leap and establish BEAM. More information about Stephanie and Victoria is available at this link.
