Acknowledging excellence

BUSINESSES, put your best feet forward, because the 2012 Heritage Bank Business Excellence Awards are in full swing.

Whether you nominate your own business, or one you think worthy of the title, now's the time to grab your entry forms and get nominating.

Spring Creek Mountain Cafe was the overall winner last year and in 2008 and owner Bev Ruskey said it worked wonders for her business.

"It was really good (to be recognised) and great for staff morale," Ms Ruskey said.

"We all felt thrilled and it's lovely to know you're supported by the community."

Ms Ruskey said the recognition gave her and her staff a wave of motivation to keep Spring Creek Mountain Cafe operating as a successful business.

She recommended anyone who knew a local business that was outstanding in what they did, to nominate them for an award.

"It's important; if you have a good experience in a place and think they deserve an award you should nominate them," Ms Ruskey said.

Rose City Shoppingworld centre manager Jason Gard said the business awards showcased the brilliant services we have in Warwick and the surrounds.

"We'll have two more categories, People's Choice and Service with a Smile where the public can vote for a person or business," Mr Gard said.

Award categories include product and/or service, customer focus, presentation and marketing, community service, people development, operational safety, business development, rural achievement, environmental sustainability, hospitality, best new business, apprentice, trainee and employee of the year.

Get your forms inside the Daily News, at Rose City Shoppingworld or Heritage Bank.
