EEO Trust award winners inspire
The annual Equal Employment Opportunities (EEO) Trust Work & Life Awards celebrate organisations that actively invest in their businesses by investing in their workforce. This year’s Awards attracted more than 45 entries, and were celebrated by 400 people at an Auckland War Memorial Museum dinner in August.
Hawke’s Bay District Health Board won the Supreme Award for Programme Incubator, which engages teenagers with health workers and the jobs they do in a bid to encourage them into the skill-short sector. The initiative also won the Tomorrow’s Workforce Award.
Other category winners were:
Skills Highway Award — Cardinal Logistics
Diversity Award — Bupa Care Services
Work & Life Award — URS New Zealand
Walk the Talk Award — Kevin Hatley,NewlandsCollege.
Commenting on the inspiring stories of the awards entrants in her editorial in the September/October issue of Employment Today, Lyndsey Swan also noted it was a pity that those attending the event were preaching to the converted. She urged employers to enter the awards — or, at least, book a spot at next year’s event.
The EEO Trust picked up on Lyndsey’s comments and has added a link to the editorial on its website.
