BMG has been named to the annual Best Places to Work list published by The Australian Financial Review and BOSS magazine. The honor follows BMG becoming the first music company to make AFR’s Most Innovative Companies list in October 2021.
The prestigious list recognizes companies based in Australia and New Zealand that have teams who are “productive, creative, and focused in the face of endless digital distractions”, and those who are “pioneering best practices in areas such as wellbeing, flexibility, and equality”.
The jury’s statement highlighted the industry and Australian-first Indigenous Music Scholarship Program which provides financial support and hands-on, lifelong mentoring.
The program helped earn BMG the honor of winning the University of Newcastle 2020 ‘New Partner’ Employability Excellence Award and BMG’s Heath Johns the Newton-John Medal for extraordinary contribution to the Arts.
BMG Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand, Heath Johns said: “I am so proud of our people, they deserve this prestigious acknowledgment, and they should all be very proud of the company we’ve worked together to build. We pride ourselves on creating a safe and inclusive space where people can continue to innovate and build gratifying careers within the BMG global eco-system. After launching BMG in Sydney in March 2016, the diverse and inspiring team and artist roster we have built is undoubtedly our proudest achievement – it has truly been an honor to be a part of something so special and I’m eternally grateful for the opportunity”.
BMG Chief Human Resources Officer Nikola Holle-Spiegel said, “This is a great achievement not just for our Sydney office, but – since we are structured as one integrated international company – for everyone at BMG. There are two striking things about this accolade. First, that it is based on input from our Sydney team members themselves, and second, that it comes amid the challenges of Covid-19 and the significant controversy about diversity and executive behavior in some parts of the music business. Sincere congratulations to all those at BMG working to create a different kind of music company.”
