Workmanship award nominations open
THERE are plenty of workers in the region who go above and beyond to prepare food, complete files or chase deals for employers and it’s time for them to shine.
Rotary Club of Warwick vocational and public relations manager Yve Stocks encourages managers to highlight a staff member who stands out in their office each day for the Pride of Workmanship Awards.
The award follows the motto of “Do it once, Do it Well, Build a better Australia” and gives businesses a chance to highlight the efforts of their employees.
“It isn’t a competition, it’s more like an encouragement award,” Ms Stocks said.
There are currently 18 nominations from businesses in the region who range from school workers, volunteers and even a young school-based trainee.
“It gives encouragement to staff and lets them know they are doing the right thing while also giving them positive feedback,” Ms Stocks said.
The Pride of Workmanship Awards were launched as a national Rotary project in 1975 with the aim of improving attitudes to work.
The awards will be held on Friday at 6.30pm at Kings Theatre with a delicious meal and entertainment provided by a Warwick State High School band for $27.50.
If you know of an employee who makes a difference in your business, or you would like a ticket to the event, call Ms Stocks as soon as possible on 0417 620 648.
