Why Good Work?
We believe in Good Work for all. If film and TV is for everyone, then everyone should be able to make film and TV.
‘Good’ work in the Creative Industries is characterised as offering: fair reward commensurate to skill and contribution, that counterbalances security and flexibility; provides autonomy and personal fulfilment; where workers have agency, voice and representation and the opportunity to utilise their skills, develop and progress; in a healthy, respectful and inclusive environment. This experience of work must be fair and equal for all Creative workers, irrespective of their gender, age, ethnicity, disability or socio-economic background.
Working in TV and film is a great job – it is varied, interesting, and carries a high cachet. Often, however, there is a trade off: the work often involves crazy hours, you have to know the right people, you have to ‘be’ a certain way. Good Work means opening up the industry so everyone has the chance to work within it. This can happen: through creating and maintaining a healthy and inclusive workplace. However, there are significant barriers to inclusion in our industry that prevent us from working well:
These working conditions are driving people out of the industry. Our training addresses these working conditions as the root cause of the failure of our industry to be inclusive. Our training is designed to build meaningful inclusivity as the central tenet of Good Work.
