Richard Morris walked away with the Employee of the Year award last Saturday, as 61 employees of Caribbean Producers Jamaica (CPJ) were recognised at the annual staff awards ceremony at the Montego Bay Convention Centre in Rose Hall, Montego Bay.
In addition to copping the Employee of the Year Award, Morris also received special recognition for his work ethic and was named the top performer in his department.
“I am very happy that I have been selected as the Employee of the Year,” Morris, a logistics controller, told Hospitality Jamaica. “I have to first thank Jan Polack, who interviewed me for the job and gave me an opportunity to express my talent, but I could not achieve this feat without the support of the management and my colleagues. This is indeed an honour for me.”
Some 12 categories were covered in the award, in addition to a number of departmental recognition awards for outstanding performers.
However, Morris, a past student of Grange High School and the Montego Bay Community College, who has been working with the organisation for the last eight years, does not intend to slow down anytime soon, as he eyes on a role in management in the future.
