Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - NEWS -

War­ragul Ro­tary Club is es­tab­lish­ing an award sys­tem which recog­nises out­stand­ing ex­am­ples of ex­cel­lence in small busi­ness

In this ini­tial year, the award will fo­cus on small busi­nesses – of up to 10 per­sons – which op­er­ate in the War­ragul, Buln Buln and Jin­di­vick post­code dis­tricts.

Or­gan­iser Pat O”Brien said there were many small busi­nesses in­clud­ing sole traders which peo­ple dealt with, often on a daily ba­sis, and who pro­vide out­stand­ing ser­vice to their cus­tomers.

“This will be the op­por­tu­nity to give a more for­mal ac­knowl­edge­ment and ap­pre­ci­a­tion,” he said.

Nom­i­na­tions will be made by the club in the com­ing weeks, and will con­sider var­i­ous as­pects of op­er­a­tion, in­clud­ing cus­tomer ser­vice, ethics, qual­ity in terms of ap­proach, at­ti­tude, com­mit­ment and ded­i­ca­tion, safety, ini­tia­tive, and re­li­a­bil­ity.

A pre­sen­ta­tion night is planned for mid-June in­clud­ing a guest speaker from the Small Busi­ness Com­mis­sion which is cur­rently pro­vid­ing in­for­ma­tion ses­sions for the lo­cal small busi­ness com­mu­nity.
