OUR STORY

Base 2 is a Managed (IT) Service Provider based in New Zealand. A few years ago, Greg Sharp, Base 2’s managing director, noticed that staff engagement was average. So, Greg developed a new performance management process, focusing on 5 key weekly results for each employee. The big 5 concept was born.

Base 2 ran the Big 5 concept for a few years and profits rose by 25%, whilst engagement grew from a score of 2.8, to 4.2 out of 5. Greg wanted to share the success of the concept with other businesses and he approached Travis Beesley to translate the concept into a software as a service application. At the end of 2020, Big 5 Software Ltd saw the light of day to take the app to the world.

Advisory Board

Nobody can build a great business alone, and whether it’s a start up or an established industry leader, having access to high-quality advice can enhance an organization’s odds of success. Entities seeking advice can obtain it from a board of directors, consultants or networks. At Big 5 Software, we recognise that we are a team of business leaders and software geeks, so we thought we’d get some fresh perspective and expert advice from HR gurus.
