We entered the 26th South West Business Excellence Awards for the first time last year. It was also the first year that the Awards offered the Excellence in Not for Profit category. Award category finalists were announced at a Finalist Networking evening held on 19th November at The Esplanade Hotel in Busselton. And we were delighted to be nominated in two categories – Professional Services People-Based Award and the Excellence in Not for Profit Award.
Amidst the calamity that COVID 19 brought to 2020, we found it a valuable exercise to take a birds eye view of our business and acknowledge the work we had done and continue to do in the health and wellbeing sector.
Extensive thanks need to go out to our staff across the organisation for the agility and fortitude during a really tumultuous time. For continuing to provide award winning services in the face of much uncertainty as well.
One member of the judging panel expressed his amazement at the capability of the business applicants stating “I’m impressed to see how many local businesses are doing some amazing things and being incredibly innovative. There are some local businesses doing some really big things.”
The Award ceremony was postponed until March 2021 to allow for easing of COVID 19 restrictions. We will keep you posted on the outcome.
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.
