The 2022 Alcoa Peel Business Excellence Awards were held on Saturday October 29 at the Lane Group Stadium, Peel Thunder Football Club and was another sell-out awards event.
The night of nights was attended by 250 guests, making it one the biggest Regional Awards events in the state of Western Australia.
We enter the awards as it is a good way to review our business and see what processes we need to strengthen and improve. Our Quality Management System means we are always in a process of continual improvement. And the award process is another way we do this.
To our delight we were finalists in the Medium Business Category and the Charites Category. We were even more delighted to win in the Medium Business Category and be the runner-up in Business of the Year.
This accolade is for the staff. The team across GP down south who work tirelessly and with so much passion to make our vision of health and wellbeing for all a reality. They bring the life to the organisation and it shows to each every client who walk through our doors. And it shows in the feedback we get.
The Awards evening is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the Peel business community, whilst also providing exposure for the Peel region.
Andrew McKerrell, general manager of the Peel Chamber said the judges had their work cut out for them. "The competition this year was simply brutal, with many categories being split by as little as 1 mark. One mark decided if you (finalists) made it to be here tonight or not, and whilst some of those who did miss out submitted incredible entries, unfortunately not everyone can make it through," Mr McKerrell said.
We extend our thanks to all sponsors and judges of these awards and congratulations to everyone who nominated.
GP down south is an exemplary not-for-profit community organisation. We have been providing health and wellbeing services in the Peel regions and the South West of WA since 1994.
