Staging Connections trumps iconic Australian businesses with HR innovation
Staging Connections are delighted to announce their award win at the Human Capital HR Awards for the Employee Connect Best Use of Technology category at the annual awards ceremony, Friday 6 September 2013.
The Staging Connections team were recognised for the implementation of a range of innovative technologies designed to connect with their geographically spread and mobile workforce. The award recognised Staging Connections efforts to reach out and connect with their varied workforce particularly through the company’s first drum roll Talent Management System and the industry first StageSafe App.
This year was the first time that the leading events company entered the HR Awards, with their inaugural entry beating leading Australian companies such as Rio Tinto and Woolworths Limited.
Talking today about the win, Tony Chamberlain, Managing Director of Staging Connections said, “We are all so thrilled with this honourable recognition of the hard work we’ve put into the way we communicate and stay connected with our teams here at Staging Connections.
It is extremely important that as a leader in our industry, we lead in all areas of operations not just event delivery. Recognising and understanding our changing workforce helped influence the implementation of the new systems and processes and we’ve definitely reaped the benefits ever since."
“Receiving this award is a testament to the impact that technology has had on the way we do business. Our entire team are always pushing the boundaries when it comes to delivering technology solutions for our clients’ events. Their constant thirst for innovation has been an integral part in the implementation success of these new technologies.” added Mr Chamberlain.
The Staging Connections’ team developed the StageSafe App in-house and worked with HR specialist to customise the talent management system appropriately named for the events business, drum roll. Both technologies have been recognised by leading industry organisations including the association of Human Resource Professionals, TalkPoint.
