Meet our CEOs: Danny Rathgeber, Health-e Workforce Solutions

In the last few months, we have brought three businesses into the Smartgroup fold.

  • Health-e Workforce Solution (a workforce management business)
  • Advantage Salary Packaging (specialists in the not-for-profit sector)
  • Smartequity (formerly TMG, an equity plan administration business)

We have gotten to know each of these businesses quite well, and the closer we work with them, the more pleased we are to have formed these partnerships.

Over the next few days, I’ll be introducing you to the CEOs of these organisations, and they’ll share their experiences of bringing their respective companies and teams into the Smartgroup family.

First off, I’m pleased to introduce Danny Rathgeber, founder and CEO of Health-e Workforce Solutions (HWS). Danny has cultivated high-level relationships with hospitals around the country. We believe the service provided by HWS is unparalleled in Australia and overseas. Offering this service to our clients will enable us to not only build stronger relationships with them, but perhaps also help them to run their organisations more efficiently.

It’s been a real pleasure to better understand Danny’s business and its potential, and I look forward to bringing you more news from HWS in the future.

To be honest, I was not attracted to the idea of joining Smartgroup at first. It seemed to be in an entirely different space compared to HWS. But the more contact I had with Deven and the team, the more appealing the company became. The money was not as important to me as the shared goals and an attitude to achieve and make a difference in the business world.

Smartgroup is a company that has worked through the hard times and is beginning a journey of growth and success, and I would like my team and HWS to be part of this. A new world is taking shape before our eyes, remade by data, rewritten in code and growing smarter every day. HWS has innovative products that are market ready, and with the commercialisation smarts of Smartgroup, we hope to continue to grow successfully.

The first word that comes to mind when describing Smartgroup is ‘energy’; energy and an attitude that we can achieve. The Smartgroup family has been welcoming, and also generous with their time and willing to help. Though there is pressure to achieve our financial goals, the Smartgroup team has allowed us to do our business. Support is there for the asking. Smartgroup values its staff and I firmly believe the philosophies of our companies are very similar. The best products in the world can realise their real potential only when the team is committed to the journey. Smartgroup may be a successful business, but the staff is the key to its success. HWS also strives for this.
