Rotary Club of Bowral-Mittagong adopt Pride of Workmanship program

Being acknowledged for a job well done is something we all appreciate.

The Rotary Club of Bowral-Mittagong will recognise eight special employees on May 30.

In 2017 Rotary has run the Pride of Workmanship program which enables employers to recognise the efforts of their employees.

The program was designed to acknowledge an employee, irrespective of age or vocation, who in the eyes of their employer, displays outstanding qualities in terms of approach, attitude, dedication and commitment to their job.

Eight nominees will be presented with an award at a presentation evening at Highlands Golf Club on May 30.

The theme for this year is ‘Do it once-do it well’.

Rotary’s director of vocational service Jim Harrison said these awards were important to foster a good working relationship between employers and their employees.

“It’s also good for us to get involved in the community,” he said.

“It’s not a competition, it’s a recognition.”

The Pride of Workmanship program began in 1975 with the Rotary Club of Pennant Hills.

Since then more than 600 Rotary clubs in Australia, New Zealand, the South Pacific, Malaysia, Canada and the USA have adopted the program.
