One week to go to enter the Innovation Awards
There’s one week left to enter the 2013 Innovation Awards for Health and Human Services and the community sector.
One of the most common comments we get is: ‘I don’t have time to enter’.
It’s often the way that celebrating successes is the last thing we do.
But all the time, our staff are encountering and solving problems, working more efficiently, introducing new systems that are more sustainable and provide better services for the people who rely on us.
The insight gained can provide a new way forward for others.
And it can be a real time-saver for colleagues in other parts of the organisation.
It’s also tremendously important to pause and celebrate when we achieve success.
Doing so helps embed the innovation and recommit everyone to finding new and better ways of working.
So if you are part of a high-performing team please share your story and enter the awards.
Remember the awards are being offered across three categories:
- Best team contribution for service excellence
- Leadership Award through new ways of working
- Leadership Award for safety and quality
And these three awards will be offered across both health and human services.
That makes for six category winners.
The three human services awards are also open to employees of non-government organisations that provide services to Tasmanians.
One of the six winners will then be chosen as the Lake Maintenance Gold Award Winner.
The entries are starting to come in, and we are aware that there are several more currently being worked on.
Remember the deadline for entries is 23 August 2013.If you have a question about how to make an entry visit: www.dhhs.tas.gov.au/about_the_department/innovation_awards/how_to_enter
