The recipients of the awards were:
- Customer of the Year – Arturo
Arturo came to Campbell Page after helping out at a BE Seen event in Frankston. Arturo struggled with his confidence due to his autism but was keen to get find the independence that is gained from finding a job. When the partnership with Tip Top Bakeries was launched, Arturo eagerly put his hand up to participate alongside 9 other candidates. He proved to everyone that he was committed to finding work and that he would be a great employee. After 3 rounds of informal recruitment, he progressed to a two week trial period and then secured his current role. One month on and Tip Tip Bakeries are thrilled with Arturo.
- Employer of the Year – Tip Top
Sally Close of Tip Top Bakery had a vision for their Pathways program and that was a genuine focus on employment fairness and equity for people living with a disability. Sally understands the value a person with a disability can add to a workplace and its culture, and sees the ability rather than the disability. On behalf of Tip Top Bakery, Sally has been an active partner with Campbell Page by supporting the Peninsula Careers Fair and meeting and interviewing our customers.
- Partner of the Year – Skillset
Skillset has been the major partner to Campbell Page Green Army for three years, not only in delivering projects but also scoping quality projects that will achieve the most worthwhile environmental outcomes and quality participant training experiences.
