The Rotary Club of Ryde held their annual Pride of Workmanship Awards on Tuesday night, to promote and celebrate excellence and dedication in the workplace.
The Awards were established in 1975 and enable employers to help employees achieve job satisfaction by publicly recognizing them for their efforts. This year, Ryde hosted a diverse group of 6 deserving nominees, including a hospital clerk, a florist, a team leader at Ryde Council, a Policewoman, a volunteer ambassador and manager at Tebbutt Lodge.
The keynote speaker this year was Employment & Industrial Relations Specialist Lawyer, Shawn Skyring, Partner at Hunt and Hunt Lawyers North Ryde. He spoke of the importance of creating a supportive and productive work environment with the perfect balance of employee and employer responsibilities that allow everyone to be their best. It was clearly evident on the night that the nominating employers have found that balance, with a high calibre of nominees, each getting a special commendation and award to acknowledge their great work.
Congratulations to 2014 Pride of Workmanship awardees; Gail Wilson, Melissa Mayson, Paul Archer, DSC Morena Connell, Balvinder Young and Panos Marlassi.
