Local care workers honoured at annual awards ceremony
Social care provider, Optalis, honoured dedicated care workers for their outstanding performance at the annual Star Awards ceremony, held at Easthampstead Park Conference Centre.
The Star Awards Ceremony, which took place on 12 June, celebrates the exceptional work delivered by Optalis staff providing all levels of care and support and highlighting those who had been short-listed in different categories.
Employees were nominated in nine individual categories, which include, among others, awards in communication, respect, and continuous development. The awards are an opportunity to praise all individuals who have consistently exhibited empathy, a positive attitude, and dedication to the work offered to customers supported by Optalis’ services.
Jeanette Crisp, Optalis HR Manager, commented: “These awards allow us to take a moment to celebrate the enormous amount of excellent work that goes on at all levels, so congratulations to all the winners and finalists and to every individual and team that have attended the event.”
The event consisted of an awards section followed by an afternoon tea and was attended by all short-listed candidates, their nominators and senior managers from Optalis. Categories were based on a series of criteria, such as exceeding customers’ expectations and being nominated by customers themselves.
Despite specific workers being short-listed and awarded for their contribution, the Star Awards is a chance to honour every individual and team who are always attempting to provide the best possible service to customers who choose Optalis for support.
Jeanette added: “We know that the winners and short-listed candidates who are celebrated at the Awards are by no means the only ones that have made a difference to our customers. We value every individual and team, who constantly thrive in the work they deliver, and the effort that all support workers continuously put into everything they do.”
