Australian Business Awards
Stage and Screen awarded for commitment to employee satisfaction
Established in 1993, Stage and Screen is a travel and logistics business specialising in moving people and equipment within the entertainment industry. The brand is primarily focused on airfares and accommodation, with the full range of products available including vehicle rentals, chauffeur services and baggage transfers.
Stage and Screen’s culture is founded on the belief that a travel professional – a passionate person who cares about delivering amazing travel experiences to their customers – is the most effective conduit to transact travel. This has extended to a “work hard, play hard” culture, combining high expectations with high support to culminate in a fast-paced, exciting work environment. Key business drivers quantify this focus, which align Stage and Screen’s business aspirations with their commitment to the happiness of their employees.
In an effort to further the professional development of their staff, Stage and Screen offer their employees access to the “Rockstar Academy”, which is a full suite of training/development modules designed to focus on five tiers of work experience. Training in years 1 to 3, years 3 to 6 and years 7 to 12, as well as a dedicated leadership module are offered as part of pre-work, facilitated and on-the-job initiatives. Development is accompanied by a rigorous performance management system that includes a series of ongoing planning meetings covering daily focus, weekly overview, 90-day business plans and longer term strategy.
Monthly buzz nights, an end-of-year ball and team incentive trips are also prominent parts of the Stage and Screen employee calendar, designed to reward employees and embody their commitment to employee health. This extends to two internal companies: Healthwise and Moneywise. Healthwise provides staff with access to fitness and discounted health services, while Moneywise ensures employees are able to pioneer their own financial success through financial planning services.
Stage and Screen’s commitment to professional development and the health and safety of their employees has seen them named as an Employer of Choice in the Australian Business Awards 2016.
Stage and Screen’s General Manager, Tiziano Galipo, was thrilled to have won the Australian Business Award category of Employer of Choice.
“Stage and Screen prides itself on cultivating its culture and it’s our unrelenting passion for this that has allowed us to be the Employer of Choice,” Mr Galipo said.
“Our people are the movers and shakers behind entertainment and sports travel. Most of them have worked or studied in film, TV, music, sport or other areas of entertainment. They are among the most experienced in the industry and we pride ourselves on providing an engaging and dynamic workplace for them to shine. This award is a great privilege and demonstrates that we are achieving our goal of being as much about our people as we are about our clients.”
