There’s no doubt that the EOFY conference is one of the highlights on the Aspect calendar and this year was no exception, as we marked our 10th EOFY conference at the RACV Cape Schanck Resort. The return to Cape Schanck was somewhat symbolic. Over the years we’ve been all over regional Victoria, Interstate and even Macau! But this year for the 10thconference, we returned to where it all began at our first conference at Cape Schanck.
Conference is an action-packed couple of days filled with presentations from all teams on the year that was, market analysis, strategy, new business initiatives and team building. But while the days are filled with reflection and strategy, there is of course, a healthy dose of celebration!
It is tradition that on the Friday night of conference, we don our black-tie attire for a black tie awards night. The awards have been designed to recognise our top consultants for their financial performance as well as an award to recognize Contribution to Aspect and the coveted Employee of the Year Award.
And we are thrilled to announce this year’s award winners:
Employee of the Year is a peer voted award and this year went to the super talented Mariah Comfort. The annual winner of this award exceeds what is expected of them in their position and sets an example within the organisation, consistently acting as a professional role model to others in the organisation.
To say that Mariah has stepped up this year would be an understatement. She has been promoted twice in the last 12 months, she topped the podium for quality service to her candidates and she demonstrated Aspect’s values on a daily basis. When she’s not recruiting, she’s busy organising the next event on Aspect’s Social Club calendar.
As an added incentive during the year, we also reward great performance with four other categories up for grabs - temporary, permanent, overall and high-flyer awards.
This year our top temp consultant was Michael Parker. Michael has worked tirelessly to build his very successful portfolio in local government, specialising in engineering and project management. He is our temp recruitment king, taking great pride in the exceptional service he provides and quality of relationships he has built. Well done Micky P!
This year the high-flyer award was introduced to recognise exceptional financial performance, over and above the expectation of their role. This year we are excited to award both permanent recruiter of the year and high-flyer award to building services consultant, Carmina Navalta. Carmina has had an outstanding year, cementing herself as a true specialist in her industry. We can’t wait to see what this star has in store for the next 12 months.
Top billing consultant this year was none other than, Sanj Shouan. This year he celebrated 9 years at Aspect and over that time he has proven himself to be a talented recruiter, and structural engineering specialist. Sanj is passionate about discovering people’s motivations and matching them with careers that will help them grow – and given the outstanding results this year, we believe it!
Contribution to Aspect award goes to the individual who shows commitment to the betterment of the Aspect business outside the core scope of their position description, which was taken out by our very talented and recently promoted People & Culture Lead, Jess Cronin! Jess has had an amazing 12 months , has written and implemented our new trainee program and works tirelessly on the Employee Value Proposition (EVP) to ensure that Aspect maintains to be a great place to work.
A heartfelt congratulations Mariah, Michael, Carmina, Sanj and Jess from all the A-Team!
