A CUP FULL OF GOODWILL
TWO years ago, under the headline “The face that stops elation”, we revealed how ex-NRL chief operating officer Suzanne Young caused an outcry by making staff take holiday leave for spending Melbourne Cup afternoon away from the office. It didn’t matter that workers had given up weekends all season to ensure the comp’s success. Office morale sank to an all-time low and Young left soon after. It was a different story on Tuesday when CEO Todd Greenberg told his team to drop tools at 2pm to watch the Cup and not come back — reward for working without a break since February’s Auckland Nines.
