Beam Australia has broken up with the 40-hour work week. They believe employee impact should be measured on outcomes not time at a desk. Beam helps companies grow in two key ways. We unlock the most amazing, productive group of talent: part-time professionals. We also provide businesses with the tools to get flexible, increase employee wellbeing and prepare for the future of work. Why Beam: Co-Founders Stephanie Reuss and Victoria Stuart left corporate careers to start Beam because they wanted to change the conversation around part-time. It was personal. When they became mums, because of big careers, they were forced to burn out or drop out of the workforce altogether. The obvious middle ground — part-time — wasn't an option because most businesses weren't doing it well or at all. The brain drain of amazing women at this stage of life is crazy and has enormous implications for women in leadership roles, superannuation, wellbeing and more. But Beam isn't just about mums. Lots of people can't work full-time even though they're still ambitious and super productive — parents, carers, athletes, those with portfolio careers, people starting businesses… Since 2016, Beam has helped add $13 million in new roles to the economy and topped up women’s superannuation by over $800,000.
