Giants and Power go into battle for Transfield Services Shield

The Greater Western Sydney Giants and Port Adelaide will tomorrow play for the Transfield Services Shield as part of the Toyota AFL Premiership Season. The teams will compete for the shield annually, beginning with the inaugural game tomorrow at Skoda stadium.

The Shield is a celebration of the diversity and passion of both clubs’ wider communities and one of the fundamental values which underpins Transfield Services business, which employs approximately 12,000 people across Australia and more than 27,000 globally.

“I’m confident a strong tradition will be created and the game will become an annual showpiece to raise awareness of the importance of diversity in the workplace and supporting local communities,” said Transfield Services Managing Director and CEO, Peter Goode, a long time Port Adelaide supporter.

Transfield Services works closely with both the Power and Giants on a range of community initiatives. It partners with the Power on its annual Aboriginal Power Cup and is a support partner in its Power to End Hunger campaign with Foodbank.

Together with the AFL and Giants, Transfield Services also recently invited 300-500 Primary School and High School students from 18 schools in NSW to attend and participate in their NAIDOC Gala Day at Blacktown International Sports Park.

Transfield Services was the first services company in Australia to put in place a Reconciliation Action Plan. As part of its updated plan to be launched later this month, it will be targeting employment of 1,000 Indigenous Australians by 2016.
