Celebrating Employee Service Awards

Congratulations Garden Village Employees Service Awards 2023

On the 8th of December, the Garden Village team gathered for a presentation and a delightful morning tea to celebrate employees who have cared for the community for 10, 25 and 35 years. The presentation was attended by Gary Humphreys, Chair of the Board who personally congratulated employees for their service milestones.

 “I don’t think there is a more noble cause in the community than looking after the vulnerable and the ageing, so what you do really is quite outstanding. Thank you very much for what you do every day and every night. It is greatly appreciated.”

“You care about your job, you care about what you do and you care about the community. The milestone awards demonstrate the deep care you have for the community. Congratulations,” added Gary.

Recognising Milestone Achievements

CEO Craig Wearne said “Congratulations to our team for their work anniversaries. Presenting so many long service awards today demonstrates the great culture we have created at Garden Village. All of our team are valued for every single day they provide care for residents and community.”

The catering team was well represented with Kay, Angela, Pamela and Katrina all receiving awards. The CEO acknowledged the 663 meals prepared and served every single day as well as two restaurants and special functions managed by the catering team.

The Garden Village values of compassion, collaboration and integrity shape the way we support our community. We are thrilled to congratulate the employees who have reached milestones in their service at Garden Village.
