Welcome to the Global edition of News from the Dog House
I like to think of myself as an equal opportunities employer – I love Australia’s multiculturalism (in my time, I have been known to frolic with the occasional German Shephard Dog and there was that fling with that Great Dane).
But I am delighted to announce that my team is increasingly looking more diverse than SBS on a Friday night. My new pups come from all over the globe. Here are some examples of the new and welcome faces:
- Pradip and Rupesh are based in Sydney via Nepal. They are already doing a great job targeting the Nepalese community.
- Marcelo came to Melbourne from Portugal when he was 12. He speaks Portuguese fluently and is already tackling Gen Y
- Khushwant who speaks Hindi and Punjabi fluently – key skills for targeting Melbourne’s diverse Indian communities
I have discussed our diversity policy with Graeme and told him that we have too many Poms in the office.
