    13. The Apprenticeship Experience

    13. The Apprenticeship Experience

    We meet four people at the Port Kembla Steelworks in Australia, who are working in electrical and mechanical roles. Aidan Grindle, Bradley Heino, Naomi Alves and Stuart Kerr are at different stages of their careers but they each have one thing in common: they all started at BlueScope as apprentices. In each interview, they explain what it means to train as an apprentice or learn a trade and where it has taken them.

    11. A Taste of AGM 2020

    11. A Taste of AGM 2020

    2020 has been a transformative year. At BlueScope, like many others, we have adapted the way that we work. One key example is our 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM), which was held entirely online between two studios in Melbourne and Sydney in Australia. This episode reflects on these changes and includes excerpts from the AGM, as we look ahead to 2021.

    Definition of 'felt leadership': '“Felt leadership” is the name given to a style of leadership in which management wants employees to feel that their supervisors respect them and are deeply invested in their well-being. Felt leadership is about showing, not telling.' (Source: DuPont Sustainable Solutions, 2020)
