Pride of Workmanship Awards - 2015

ROTARY Club Toowoomba South deputy vocational services director Peter Wenham said he was quite impressed with the calibre of employees in the district after the recent Rotary Club Pride of Workmanship Awards.

Mr Wenham said the awards were designed to acknowledge an employee irrespective of age or vocation who, in the eyes of his or her employer, displayed outstanding qualities in terms of attitude, performance, safety, ethics, responsibility and commitment to his or her position.

On the night, 10 employees from several different Toowoomba businesses were congratulated for their efforts.

Rotary Club Toowoomba South president Graham Newnham said that this year's awards had been the biggest yet with 10 people recognised instead of five from previous award ceremonies.

"We want to recognise employees who may not otherwise be recognised," he said.

He said this year the club approached selected businesses and hoped to approach more next year.

He said each business nominated several employees who were interviewed by Mr Wenham, who selected each winner.

"It's a great way to recognise them," Mr Newnham said.

The awards were held on March 3 at Regents on the Lake in Toowoomba.
