Wired Bucks The Great Resignation Trend, Increases Staff Numbers 50%

Wired, one of Australia’s top agencies for people and culture, has had its best year on record.

Atop of retaining 93 per cent of its staff since January and growing its team by more than 50 per cent, Wired also won 12 new accounts and executed 61 campaigns.

Founder and managing director, Angela Hampton attributed the success to the agencies deliberate and focused moves to better the business.

“Our business plan is a little different to most, in that 90 per cent of it is people focussed.”

“Our belief is that if our people are happy, energised, supported, focussed and inspired through great work; the rest tends to take care of itself.”

Hampton added, “To put it more bluntly, genuinely give less fucks about profit and more fucks about your people and watch what happens.”

Commenting further on the high rate of retention, managing partner David Kennedy-Cosgrove stated, “Our high retention rate relies on hiring the right people in the first place and we look for things in people that perhaps may be overlooked by others.”

“We value life experience as much as industry.”
