Nom­i­nate now for busi­ness awards

Maroochy Weekly - - NEWS -

IM­PROVED staff mo­ti­va­tion and morale, bet­ter cus­tomer ser­vice and pro­fes­sional ac­knowl­edg­ment of your achieve­ments – these are just some of the ben­e­fits lo­cal busi­nesses have ex­pe­ri­enced from en­ter­ing the Sun­shine Coast Busi­ness Awards.

Nom­i­na­tions are now open for the 2017 awards, man­aged by the Ma­roochy­dore Cham­ber of Com­merce.

Ma­roochy­dore’s Plaza Cen­tral Den­tists owner Dr Rakesh Ji­van said other busi­nesses should con­sider nom­i­nat­ing for the 2017 Sun­shine Coast Busi­ness Awards fol­low­ing his win in 2016.

“Last year was a pretty busy year for our young prac­tice, we hadn’t even been in busi­ness for 12 months, but with the num­ber of pa­tients com­ing in we thought en­ter­ing the awards would be a great way to cel­e­brate the team and the pa­tients,” Dr Ji­van said.

“We didn’t have an ex­pec­ta­tion to win.

“I think pas­sion was the thing that got us over the line.

“We re­ally care about what we did, what we cur­rently do and the sup­port of the com­mu­nity and pa­tients who re­ally wanted some­thing dif­fer­ent, which I think we de­liv­ered on.

“Whether you win or lose, that’s not the point.

“It’s the cel­e­bra­tion of busi­ness and some­one’s ideas and the peo­ple you work with.”

Sun­shine Coast Busi­ness Awards chair Jen­nifer Swaine said peo­ple could nom­i­nate their own busi­nesses or oth­ers’

“The 2017 awards is an ex­cit­ing mix of awards which rep­re­sents the way busi­ness is con­ducted in our re­gion,” Ms Swaine said.
