Giving Something Back

91% of staff agreed

My organisation encourages charitable activities

Telstra have a Social Committee formed of a good cross-representation of people from around the business. This year the Social Committee have introduced a team-based points scoring system, which really gets different people together who would not usually work with one another. Every member of staff is allocated to one of the teams. At the end of the financial year, the team with the most accrued points win a team event of their choice, which will be funded by Telstra and will be in work-time, for example a meal out, drinks or an activity of their choice. Over the course of the year there are many different and varied activities where people can score points for their team. Activities include a Rugby World Cup challenge, a Step Challenge, a Bake-Off Competition and a Pub Quiz. In addition, the competition between teams has increased banter and helped foster a more competitive, collaborative but fun approach to socialising. Telstra also have a newly formed Brilliantly Connected Women's group for their ladies, including guest speakers, social events and walking groups.

My Company

91% of staff agreed

I believe I can make a valuable contribution to the success of this organisation

At Telstra, all of those new to management attend an external training course. This year the company have a new internally run leadership programme, which is run for all Telstra's leaders around the world. All Senior Executives attend a three day residential “Connected Leadership” course in Australia. All leaders then attend a three day “Business Leader Programme” and all aspiring leaders attend a two day “Emerging Leaders Programme”. Leaders are encouraged to have a Mentor somewhere around the Telstra globe. At least once a year every employee sits down with their Manager to talk about what development they need and would like in order to do their job well. Conversations are recorded onto individual success plans and any requirements for external development are therefore captured. Telstra also have People Leader forums, where leaders are invited to discuss issues and share opinions and advice. The company also encourage their leaders to go through a 360° feedback exercise, as the feedback can raise issues which may or may not need formal development or coaching.
