We rounded out an excellent year on Dec. 23 by honouring the hard work of all of our teams at our annual Christmas awards gathering. While narrowing an award down to one winner is always difficult with a staff who are all hard working, we singled out five candidates who deserved special recognition.
Winning the Employee of the Quarter Award in the Vegetable Division was Donnacha Farrell whose attention to detail and conscientiousness are a great asset to the team. Simas Silianskas won the Employee of the Year for his efficiency with our IT systems and his industriousness in the dispatch department. Pictured below left is Donnacha Farrell with Mark and Peter, and pictured below right is Simas with Patrick, Mark and Peter.
We were able to do a joint presentation as the Employee of the Quarter and Employee of the Year were won by the same person in the Fruit Division. Daiva Dziaugyte has been a real champion of recent IT improvements. She has been brilliant at helping the team to implement these upgrades. Here she is pictured with Ronan, Darragh and Patrick.
While celebrating the hard work of our entire team in the Potato Division, Rory Young nabbed the Employee of the Quarter Award for his efficiency in the potato yard and Mantas Vaitekunas took the Potato Div. Employee of the Year Award for his incredible work ethic. Pictured below left is Rory with Tommy and Philip Jr. Pictured below right is Mantas with Tommy and Philip Jr.
