Screen Well is set to run a job-sharing pilot aimed at creating a new pathway for screen workers to enter or return to the industry, upskill, and enhance their work/life balance.
Up to 30 new and emerging screen practitioners from North and Far North Queensland will have the opportunity to gain industry skills across a number of below-the-line disciplines as part of a new development program from Screen Queensland.
In recognition that many small screen businesses want to create a workplace culture that prioritises wellbeing, but are challenged to find the time or resources to stay across legislation, industry priorities and best practice, Screen Well has launched a free 'Wellbeing for Small Business' guide.
Australian employers now have increased legal obligations to protect the mental wellbeing of employees. IF finds out what that means for the screen industry.
Venn and Screen Well have joined forces on a research project to examine on set leadership and culture, and how it impacts mental health and wellbeing. Venn managing director Jonathon Dutton shares some of the preliminary findings.
