We’re excited to share that Ambit’s very own, Frances Rickard, has been awarded the Cloud 9 Collaborator Award and Most Valuable Employee Award in this year's Bonfire Employee Appreciation Awards!
The Bonfire Employee Appreciation Awards recognise and celebrate New Zealand’s exceptional employees who take initiative and make significant differences in their organisations, every day.
The awards consist of 6 categories: Outstanding Innovator Award, Cloud 9 Collaborator Award, Human Magnifier Award, Wellness Champion Award, Fast Fresh Starter Award, and an overall Most Valuable Employee Award.
Frances was first awarded the Cloud 9 Collaborator award for demonstrating sincere collaboration by building relationships within teams, sharing knowledge and co-operating to achieve great synergistic outcomes. Judges of the award pay close attention to examples of collaboration or collaboration leadership, how the collaboration impacted others, and the outcome or result of the collaboration.
An example of Frances’ collaborative nature was shown by her efforts in going over and above her usual role, offering to teach fellow colleagues how to be more confident and effective at public speaking.
Frances then went on to steal the show by taking home the ‘Grand Prix’ award for Most Valuable Employee - an award chosen from the winners of each category as someone who demonstrates exceptional leadership qualities, shows initiative and resourcefulness, and who actively strives towards work-related and personal goals, to which others aspire.
The award recognises Frances’ efforts to drive positive change in her industry, role and organisation - something we see here at Ambit on a day-to-day basis!
