Benalla locals are being asked to nominate their favourite service excellence professional.December 24, 2012 4:53am
BBN/Rotary award will be presented - Macca's Simon Farish, Kyra Rheese, Frank Stephens and Travis Mullavey.
Three sponsors of the Benalla Business Network Employee Excellence Awards gathered at Benalla Travel last week to again commit their support to the award, which has been merged with the Rotary Pride in Workmanship Award.
Speaking on behalf of McDonald’s and Benalla Travel, fellow sponsor Benalla and Mansfield Toyota’s Travis Mullavey said the sponsors were happy to support the efforts of the community and seek an opportunity to recognise the efforts of employees in local businesses.
The merger brings together one of the best known local awards established by Rotary some years ago with the BBN Award, which was first established in 2011 with the same generous sponsors, inspired by Kirstie Marshall.
Ms Marshall was so impressed with our town and our people after being keynote speaker at the 2011 BBN Awards Dinner that she donated her fee back as the basis for the employee prize.
For her part BBN committee member and long-term awards committee representative Kyra Rheese was only too happy to see the award evolve and sponsor support continue so strongly. Speaking last week Ms Rheese said while small business was the backbone of any town, good employees were the backbone of a business.
‘‘We are thrilled to be able to join with Rotary and our generous sponsors to be able to offer this award again in 2012 to recognise employee excellence in our town,’’ she said.
If you would like to recognise the best in excellence, workmanship and employee performance you can pick up a form from a number of points in town. For ease of nominating you can even download the form from the BBN website at www.benallabusinessnetwork.com.au or from the BBN Facebook page Benalla Business Network. Nominations close on January 7, 2013.
