Newry Chamber officially launched the Greater Newry Employee Awards on Thursday 28th June at the Bank Bar, Newry.
Mary Meehan CEO of Newry Chamber commented: “We are delighted to launch our first ever Greater Newry employee awards. These awards underpin the Chamber’s aim to support businesses in creating a happy and healthy workplace and recognising and celebrating employee success. It is important that employers communicate to the employees the criteria for what performance or contribution constitutes rewardable behaviour in their own workplace. All employees are therefore eligible for the recognition and nomination but only one nomination per company will be permitted.”
Paul Convery, President of Newry Chamber commented: “Promoting a culture that rewards and recognises top performing employees should be embraced. We encourage all businesses across all sectors in the public and private sectors to put forward a nomination which will be judged by an independent judging panel and celebrated at a Gala Dinner on Saturday 15th September 2018.”
