Some of our 2018 Integrity Value and Heart & Soul winners, John Holdcroft, Jan Cartmell, Kathy Kelly, and Callum O’ Connor, pose with Workpower CEO Lee Broomhall and General Manager Human Resources Natasha Edwards.
Our values guide everything we do at Workpower, and are displayed by the incredible people who make up this organisation. Every year we celebrate those in particular who embody our values and inspire others.
Recognising our people
Our people are, and always have been, the heart of our organisation. We are fortunate to have so many staff driven to create opportunities for people with disability across many divisions and teams. And with International Day of People with Disability just around the corner, there’s no better time to shine a spotlight on their achievements!
To acknowledge their hard work and dedication, we came together to celebrate at our Value Awards ceremony on the 26th October 2018. Awards were judged by our CEO Lee Broomhall and General Manager Human Resources Natasha Edwards. Last year’s award winners were also invited to co-present this year’s awards.
Congratulations to all our nominees and winners! And a big thank you to all our devoted staff: without each of your contributions, we would not be able to achieve the incredible outcomes we have today.
