Young mean busi­ness

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Nom­i­na­tions for the Out­stand­ing Young Em­ployee of the Year are be­ing sought as part of the an­nual West­pac Porirua City Busi­ness Ex­cel­lence Awards.

For the fourth year the young em­ployee awards are be­ing spon­sored by Part­ners Porirua.

Its man­ager, Michelle Robin­son, said the award is to recog­nise the con­tri­bu­tion young peo­ple can play in a busi­ness.

‘‘While they don’t of­ten have much ex­pe­ri­ence, their en­thu­si­asm, mo­ti­va­tion and fresh­ness can add value to the work­place.

‘‘Not only do they bring new ideas to the busi­ness but they can also pro­vide an in­sight to the think­ing of young peo­ple as con­sumers.’’

Ms Robin­son is call­ing on em­ploy­ers to nom­i­nate their young staff mem­bers for their con­tri­bu­tion to the work­place or the community.

‘‘It only needs a few para­graphs from their em­ployer to tell us about the con­tri­bu­tion made by the nom­i­nee and it might be about their en­thu­si­asm, their new ideas, their will­ing­ness to con­trib­ute, their cus­tomer ser­vice, their at­ten­dance record or their over­all con­tri­bu­tion to the community,’’ she said.

Nom­i­na­tions close in Oc­to­ber. Send to: Part­ners Porirua at P O Box 50462, Porirua, or email jewelz@ part­ner­sporirua.org.nz. Win­ners will be re­vealed at the Novem­ber busi­ness awards.
