Coinciding with International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples on 9 August, two of our Australian facilities have been recognised internationally for their high performance.
A team at Darwin Correctional Centre has won a workforce performance award, Refurbisher of the Year, for the second consecutive year. The team share the award with disability enterprise, Bindi Enterprises, Lifestyle Solutions (Bindi) in Alice Springs.
MNH is proud to partner with specialist workforces from both the disabled and prison sectors across our Global Network. We offer our clients the choice of using our in-house teams but actively promote the support of these unique sectors.
Ruth Mellor, Senior Industry Officer, Darwin Correctional Centre, says, "Our supported employees are dedicated and loyal; they take pride in their work and are committed. Their contribution is valued and they in turn value their own work with pride and satisfaction."
While Cindy Walters, Bindi Enterprises, Lifestyle Solutions Coordinator says, "It builds confidence and provides a sense of achievement to see their product in the community. Physically it assists with improving fine and gross motor skills, and cognitively builds on numeracy foundations."
This exciting news story has been reported in the local Alice Springs press. The article featured in the Centralian Advocate, a bi-weekly newspaper at Alice Springs in the Northern Territory with a readership of over 15,000 people.
Congratulations to both teams from everyone at MNH.
