Crewsaders 10K Club Expands

News

The 10K Club remains to be one of the most exclusive, rewarding and aspirational groups to be welcomed into as a crewman.
Coined by Crewsaders in 2010, the 10K Club sets about to reward all serving crewman who reach the impressive milestone of 10,000 onsite hours.
We talk to Operations Director, Calum McConnachie, who explains why recognition is so important in achieving consistently high levels of productivity and how the 10K Club is expanding…

London employee Daniel Anstey recently became the 23rd member of the impressive 10K Club, which works to recognise and reward long serving Crewsaders, whose loyalty, dedication and commitment to the world of crewing is celebrated.
Daniel happily joins the 10K Club ‘Hall of Fame’ alongside twenty two colleagues who have all hit the dizzy heights of an incredible 10,000 onsite hours as a Crewsader. Many club members have poignantly worked from grassroots up, with little to no experience, to become some of the most knowledgeable, experienced and skilled crew within the events industry.

Such a significant accomplishment is certainly coupled with an equally exciting reward as serving Crewsaders are presented with their very own engraved Tag Heuer watch as a special thank you for their continued commitment to the company.
Not only do all employed crew who reach this landmark receive such an attractive gift, but they also receive the illustrious status that goes along with being acknowledged as experienced crew with an expert handle on the wider industry.

Operations Director Calum McConnachie expands on the rewards of crew by explaining that “increasingly so, clients are forming their own preferences when it comes to requesting preferred crew lists for consistent work in specialist venues, so naturally ‘10K Club’ statuses do not go unnoticed when clients take all things into consideration”. Calum goes onto to explain that whilst the 10K Club was historically exclusive to employed crew only, the company recently tabled a motion to adjust its position to recognise and commend all crew, self-employed or otherwise, who work onsite for Crewsaders and uphold the values and professionalism of what it is to be a Crewsader. “It’s really important for us to be consistent with our message that we appreciate and value all those who work hard, uphold our values and achieve great things working as part of a team. We want to produce opportunity and layer recognition on all crew who best serve our clients.” As a result, all self-employed crew who have clocked 10,000 onsite hours for the company will now receive a premium North Face jacket in addition to all crew receiving ‘10K Club’ branded kit to promote their onsite statuses.

As the company expands and continues to secure more and more work contracts, it’s pertinent for Crewsaders to continue communicating its leading company benefits and incentives. “We’re increasingly proud of our culture” explains Calum, “we’ve certainly stepped up the pace with benefits and recognition, and perhaps more importantly, how we communicate these things. Our people have always been our best asset and how we respect and value our workforce is a direct reflection of our steady retention rates and continued productivity. There’s always room for improvement, certainly on the communication front, but we’re all pointing in the right direction, the crew are happier and as a collective team, we’re more unified than ever.”

So what does the future hold for 10k Club and workforce recognition?
“There’s exciting projects on the horizon” says Calum, “we want to invest in our people as well as support and futureproof their longer-term career goals. It’s important to us that our people are happy, successful and feel like there is greater longevity, benefits and opportunity in what we are able to provide as a first-class crewing company.”
