Creative Resource Manager
The creative industry has lent their creative muscle to Kaija Wall, the Broadcast Production Director at Host Sydney.
Kaija’s son, Jai, has been diagnosed with Friedreich’s Ataxia, a rare genetic disease. Sadly there is no cure, so to raise awareness and more importantly to raise money to help fund research, Host and a few pals have created a campaign called Lend Us Some Muscle.
We’re asking people to show their support on Facebook, share our video and lend some financial muscle with a donation.
Hostie Andrew Guirguis used his sabbatical to record part of his debut album as Young Cairo – an epic indie pop project spanning five countries, eight studios and a little over two years work.
He’s just released the first single from the album, and it’s brilliant. We highly recommend that you go check it out.
At Host, we offer a sabbatical to every member of staff after 3 years of employment. With 3 weeks paid leave and $2,000 we set them off for a self-development activity of their choice. It’s a chance for Host people to learn something new, challenge themselves or pursue life-long ambitions.
Recent examples have included making a documentary film in Gallipoli, climbing Mount Toubkal, kicking off a (second) music career as a solo recording artist, completing a Harley Davidson internship in the USA and enrolling in a script writing course in LA.
At Host, we pride ourselves on having a vibrant culture and in order to make sure our people are inspired and thriving, every year we do an annual Happiness Survey.
It asks our team how they feel about the people they work with, the management team, the work we do, the working environment and the fun-stakes here at Host.
This year, over 80% of our people responded, and we’re pleased with the results.
It’s election season at Host with a group of our most outgoing types competing for a slot on the coveted Culture Council, the team entrusted to make Host a happy and fun place to work.
It’s the usual campaigning fare with a mix of popular promises around food and booze, the odd rap and a lot of bribes in the form of baking and Ben and Jerry’s.
Less predictable was one candidate named Ball whose key activity was to allow the whole agency to pelt him with tennis balls. Huh?
On 19 September, 30 dedicated and brave souls from Host took part in the Blackmores Running Festival. Strapping on their running shoes, they embarked on a run across the city to raise awareness for our ’32,000 To Go’ campaign for The Oasis Youth Support Network. All up, over $50,000 was raised for young homeless people on the day.
