About Hoyts

From its small beginnings, HOYTS cinemas have become one of the world’s leading entertainment corporations. HOYTS Australia and New Zealand owns and operates over 50 cinemas with over 400 screens and more than 50,000 seats. As an Equal Opportunity
Employer, they recognise that our employees are all unique in their life experiences, skills and ability. They try to empower their workforce, and value the range of backgrounds that represent their employees through diversity and flexibility.

Partnership objectives

1 – Create Purpose & Alignment – to build engagement and encourage collaboration to foster inclusion and enhance leadership capability

2 – Foster Inclusive Leadership Practices – to equip operational leaders at HOYTS with practical and tangible skills and tools to cultivate belonging, engagement and
inclusion within their teams

The solution

Develop and deliver a 2-day Future Leaders Program at the HOYTS Offsite Operations Conference that focuses on the humanistic functions within leadership.

  • Personal Leadership: Developing confidence & leadership aspirations
  • Leading Others: Creating a culture of inclusion

Key customisations undertaken as a result of HOYTS’ unique needs included:

  • 1. Embedding HOYTS FIERCE values through communications and content
  • 2. Understanding the landscape of the evolving workforce and the leadership impact on wellbeing, high performance and toxic culture
  • 3. Resetting, Refocusing and Restarting following a challenging period during the pandemic
  • The company: HOYTS
  • Service: Bespoke Training
The Future Leaders program facilitated by TDC Global was received so positively from our team, with many stating it as the most beneficial leadership program they’ve participated in. This particular group of Managers are at the forefront of our business every day, managing our cinema operations and our largest teams. It provided them with the opportunity to spend time reflecting to better understand themselves as leaders, their environment, and broaden their range of influence to development their leadership style and approach to the myriad of challenges they face.
