"FCTG is a family and a forever career", says Jodie Trueman, Future Area Leader Johannesburg West
Flight Centre Travel Group makes dreams come true – both for its clients and for the people who work for the group. For Jodie Trueman, Future Area Leader Johannesburg West, FCTG offers an environment in which driven and passionate people can thrive, achieving more than they ever thought possible.
Her position as a leader sees her helping shape the professional development of new recruits and long-serving staff alike. It’s a role she loves.
“My greatest reward as a leader is seeing my people happy, fulfilled and successful. I love seeing someone achieve something that they never thought possible,” she says. “Leadership, for me, is simply about making a positive difference in someone’s life.”
Jodie‘s leadership style, and one she recommends young leaders emulate, is to invest in people and earn their respect. “Success will automatically result from happy people and a happy work environment,” she says.
It came as no surprise to Jodie that FCTG ranks as one of the top companies to work for in South Africa, and was awarded the Platinum Award in the Deloitte Best Company Survey for 2018: “FCTG is a family and a forever career,” she says. “FCTG does not discriminate against age, race, gender, sexual orientation or background. If you work hard, you will be rewarded. FCTG's people come first and the culture is electrifying, unlike any other company in the world!”
