Staff at a St Mellons-headquartered care provider have been praised for their outstanding work at a recent ceremony in Cardiff.
The event, which took place at St Mellons Golf Club in Cardiff, saw ten head office staff members receive awards, with three selected to proceed to the ‘National Shaw Star Awards’ in November.
Hannah Salter and Jasmine Bird were recognised in the Services Support category for having a positive impact on colleagues and service users with their kind nature, while Paul DeDuonni received the award for Shining Star – a selfless, dedicated and committed member of the team who enables colleagues, services, and the company to succeed. All three staff members have been chosen as finalists for the awards on the 24 November, later this year.
More than 50 head office staff members were also recognised for their long service – reaching a combined total of 716 years of service between them. Lynne Anderton – who is a member of the finance team – is one of the longest serving staff members and celebrated 36 years dedicated to the company.
Lynne said: “It’s an honour to be recognised for the hard work I have put in over the last 36 years, and I would do it all again without question. My time with the company has been great thanks to the team I have worked with along the way; I have made lifelong friends at Shaw.”
Russell Brown, chief executive officer of Shaw healthcare, attended the awards ceremony and presented staff with their certificates and gifts.
He said: “We’re constantly in awe of the dedication and hard work our staff put into their roles to make our services the best they can be. At Shaw healthcare, we want staff to feel supported and appreciated throughout their time with us, so it’s great that we have been able to get together to show our appreciation.”
