Recognising some of our amazing and committed staff

Posted on Monday, December 14, 2020

Brightwater is full of people doing extraordinary things, day in, day out, across all of our services.

That’s why every year we have the Values and Service Awards, which recognise and reward Brightwater employees who personify our values and commitment every day.

Brightwater CEO Jennifer Lawrence said the staff recognition awards were particularly important this year.

“The amount of change this year has meant that we have all had to quickly adapt whilst never losing sight of our Mission – to pursue the dignity of independence.”

“These amazing award recipients have not only contributed to the organisation, but have also improved the lives of the people we provide care and services to.”

Brightwater Service Awards

Brightwater has a number of staff who have been with the organisation for more than a decade. To recognise their commitment, the Service Awards were presented to those who have worked with Brightwater for 10 years to 40+ years.

75 staff members received these awards, including General Manager Community- Janet Wagland, Ana Sevastos and Sabrina Welti who celebrate 30 years with Brightwater, and Ray Francis, Bernadette Ray, who have worked with Brightwater for 40 years.
