The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

It was a day of cel­e­bra­tion for em­ploy­ees of St. Lu­cia Elec­tric­ity Ser­vices Lim­ited (LUCELEC) as the com­pany rec­og­nized the achieve­ments of staff for end of year 2015.

When it comes to iden­ti­fy­ing the in­di­vid­u­als and teams who went above and be­yond the call of duty, LUCELEC's an­nual staff ap­pre­ci­a­tion cer­e­mony has built a rep­u­ta­tion for leav­ing no stone un­turned. Over 50 em­ploy­ees were rec­og­nized in late April for their out­stand­ing achieve­ments. The LUCELEC Staff Ap­pre­ci­a­tion Cer­e­mony, with the theme, “Rec­og­niz­ing the In­di­vid­ual Con­tri­bu­tion of the En­ergy Be­hind Our Syn­ergy” was held at the com­pany's Cul-de-Sac fa­cil­ity. Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor Trevor Louisy lauded staff for their in­di­vid­ual and col­lec­tive ef­forts in help­ing the com­pany ac­com­plish its goals in the pre­vi­ous year, and en­cour­aged them to con­tinue to give their best.

“As with ev­ery team that does well or wins, there are play­ers who stand out, ei­ther for their all-round solid per­for­mance through­out the game or mo­ments of bril­liance through a par­tic­u­lar pas­sage of play. And while they re­ceive spe­cial men­tion, they could not have done well without the team. If we pur­pose­fully aim to be the best at what we do in­di­vid­u­ally, this in­di­vid­ual en­ergy that we bring to the job can be har­nessed to pro­vide the syn­ergy re­quired for the com­pany to ex­cel, not just for this year, but for well into the fu­ture,” he said.

The LUCELEC Awards Com­mit­tee was able to main­tain a fun and in­ter­ac­tive at­mos­phere through­out the pro­ceed­ings with a com­bi­na­tion of song, dance and drama per­for­mances by staff.

Earn­ing the ti­tle of Em­ployee of the Year for 2015 was Li­nes­man Kirk Aroudel of the Trans­mis­sion and Dis­tri­bu­tion De­part­ment. Michael Am­brose, of the same De­part­ment, re­ceived the Tech­ni­cal Su­per­vi­sor of the Year Award, while the Non-Tech­ni­cal Su­per­vi­sor of the Year Award went to Mario Bis­cette of the Cus­tomer Ser­vice De­part­ment.

The com­pany also pre­sented Spe­cial Achieve­ment Awards to Vilna Joseph, Mario Cagli­nand Bernar­dia Regis for ex­cep­tional ef­forts in var­i­ous ar­eas.

Chair­man of the LUCELEC Board of Di­rec­tors, Stephen McNa­mara, shared a few words of en­cour­age­ment with staff: “Those of you who have put in the ef­fort but haven't quite got­ten to the awardee po­si­tion, fear not; your time will come and you can take sat­is­fac­tion from the fact you have con­trib­uted to the place that this com­pany holds not only in Saint Lu­cia but in the en­tire Caribbean."
