Mackay Sugar nominated as a finalist for “Champion Culture” at the RIN Awards
It was announced at the end of August that Mackay Sugar is a finalist in the Champion Culture category of the prestigious Resource Industry Network (RIN) Awards. The RIN Awards, for which Mackay businesses can be nominated, recognise the significant contributions businesses make to the local economy and community.
In a region where mining is often at the forefront of industry, it was an outstanding achievement for Mackay Sugar to be nominated as a finalist in the Champion Culture category, a category that looks at exemplary culture in the workplace. And even more so, as the work to create an even better workplace for employees is recognised not only within the company but also outside it.
While ties and ball gowns may not be the usual attire for Mackay Sugar employees, the 20 employees who attended the awards ceremony – primarily values ambassadors and culture officers – were proud to have played an important role in realising our values and promoting a positive workplace culture (in picture above f. l. t. r.: RIN Representative with Carissa Mansfield and Lenna Hanley).
“Culture is a reflection of the entire organisation,” said Carissa Mansfield, General Manager People & Culture. “That’s why it was important that we share this award with the people in our organisation. They are the ones who make a difference every day by exemplifying positive behaviours and bringing our values to life,” she said.
While the Champion Culture Award was won by a local industrial equipment and management company, Mackay Sugar’s nomination as a finalist was recognised with a certificate. “It was really great to see that we are taking steps in the right direction and to know that what we are doing is making a difference,” said Lenna Hanley, Procurement Coordinator and Values Ambassador at the presentation of the certificate.
