TFESC National Employer of the Year Awards Announced

TFESC National Employer of the Year Awards Announced

The Territorial Force Employer Support Council (TFESC) Employer of the Year awards were announced last night at a formal ceremony held at Parliament.

The awards, which recognise employers who are committed to supporting Reserve Forces’ personnel in their workplace, were presented by the Chair of the TFESC, Mr Peter Townsend.

Chief of Defence Force, Lieutenant General Tim Keating and the Minister of Labour, Hon Simon Bridges, were also present at the awards ceremony.

The following awards were presented:

1. National Small – Medium Business of the Year: Avonmore Tertiary Institute, Tauranga, nominated by Navy Reservist Chief Petty Officer Maritime Trade Operator Graeme Frost.

2. National Large Business of the Year: Datacom Ltd, nominated by Army Reservist Corporal Daryll Savage.

3. Captain David Morgan of Air New Zealand was presented a Director-General Award for his work championing the Royal New Zealand Air Force Pilot Managed Transition Scheme.

4. Wade Riley and Benn McKenzie of GPS Control Systems, Tauranga were also presented a Director-General Award for sustaining the business when the owner, Lieutenant John Ahearn, was completing Navy Reserve duties.

“Reserve Forces form a vital part of the NZDF, who rely on them to volunteer on both overseas duty and duties here at home, for example providing support to Exercise Southern Katipo 2013 in Timaru in November last year,” Mr Townsend said.

“The Reserve Forces would not be able to operate to the same capacity without the support employers provide their Reservist employees,” he said.
