A CUP FULL OF GOOD­WILL

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

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.
