Spiros, HR of TORTENS
“I’d like to thank Sacrebleu’s team for a perfectly executed workshop evening 12th of June. I’ve been in contact with the owners of Torstens Smakar Mera, and both them and their employees are happy with the workshop and had a good time participating.
As you know Torstens is a restaurant with a diverse group of owners and employes that come from different national groups, different ages and genders. Thankfully the owner talked about their staff issues and I couldn’t think of a better idea than to set you two in contact, so a workshop could be arranged on the subject “diversity in the workplace”. Lucky as I am I also got the benefit of participating as a bonus. It was lovely to see you in action 🙂
The films that we watched as the main excercise was great since they had a broader perspective on the diversity subject. The excercise was fun and the discussion afterwards even more so because it gave us a possibility to dig deeper in to the problems that actually exist in that specific workplace and both acknowledge them and visualize them for further actions.
Hopefully Torstens will continue working with diversity issues at their workplace and continue on improving their working environment.
Please let me know if you’re ever in need of any references and I will be glad to give them.”
TORTENS FILM FESTIVAL
Sacrebleu’s objectives was to create a team spirit through “Diversity” Topic.
TOPIC OF THE SCREENING
Spiros from Torstens contacts me for organising a a film festival team building around several topics and notably “Diversity” for the 13 employees of TORTENS company (bartender, chef, delivery…).
CATEGORIES, THEMATICS, COUNTRIES
For constituing the short-movie playlist, I sent Spiros a list of topics (available here). TORTENS selection was :
– Category : Comedy, Action, thriller, Horror and fiction.
– Thematics : Empowerment, Family (Spirit) and diversity.
– Language : english subtitles.
BEHIND THE SELECTION
Throught our selection, we tried to define what is diversity. Meaning showing differents characters with different personnality and how they can (or can not) fit together. Every characters face differently situation. The selection is centered around choices and consequences.
The 12 people were divided in team of 3 people : Scriptwriter, Music, Film director and Actor. Every team had its own way of watching the short-movie. Best short-movie elected was “Stand by” for its simple and rightness of ton.
