Nom­i­nate for Tel­stra busi­ness award

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

EN­TRIES are open for the 2014 Tel­stra Aus­tralian Busi­ness Awards and small and medium busi­nesses are be­ing urged to as­pire to a boost in the bot­tom line that can come with more en­gaged em­ploy­ees.

Peta Field­ing, di­rec­tor and CEO of Burleigh Brew­ing Co and win­ner of the 2013 Tel­stra Queens­land Busi­ness of the Year award, said shar­ing the news and see­ing the re­ac­tion of his crew to the win was al­most as ex­cit­ing as the win it­self.

‘‘It truly is great recog­ni­tion for the whole team and we take great delight in watch­ing the way in which they proudly ‘own’ both the work that has gone in and the re­ward that has come,’’ he said.

Clyde Camp­bell, CEO of Ma­chin­ery Au­to­ma­tion and Robotics, said there was an im­me­di­ate im­pact on staff mo­ti­va­tion and per­for­mance when the firm was named Tel­stra Aus­tralian Busi­ness of the Year in 2008. ‘‘It would be a fair es­ti­mate that the flow- on to pro­duc­tiv­ity for the com­pany over the en­su­ing months, and prob­a­bly longer, would have been be­tween 10 and 15 per cent,’’ Mr Camp­bell said.

‘‘The aware­ness of our com- pany in the pub­lic space, helped at­tract skilled tal­ent which is of­ten price­less.’’

En­tries for the 2014 Tel­stra Busi­ness Awards can be sub­mit­ted un­til March 31. Nom­i­na­tions for the awards can be made at­stra­busi­nes­ or by call­ing 1800AWARDS. More than $800,000 in prizes is avail­able for state, ter­ri­tory and na­tional Tel­stra Awards win­ners.
