The Oscars, Emmys and Grammys may have wrapped up for 2022, but there are still two more important awards to go: the Anna Alderson Award and NDP’s Workmate of the Year!
Got an A-list colleague you’d like to nominate?
To make it easier, we’ll enter some of the nominations for the Anna Alderson Awards into the Workmate of the Year award – automatically. This means you do not need to place an entry in the Workmate of the Year Award, as the marketing team will do it on your behalf. Two entries for the price of one!
Find out more about the Anna Alderson Awards and make your nominations here.
To enable us to process the nominations in time, we ask that you please have them submitted by June 30.
More about the awards:
The Anna Alderson Awards
Named in honour of our former chairperson, the Anna Alderson awards were instigated in 2016 to recognise those who demonstrate one or more of Rise's values through outstanding service.
Integrity: We do the right thing.
Respect: We listen and trust.
Welcoming: We offer a place to belong.
Optimism: We are hopeful and confident.
We can’t promise you a gold statue, but the winners of each category (individual and team) will receive a $500 prize at the end-of-year event.
National Disability Practitioners’ Workmate of the Year
The Workmate of the Year award aims to recognise and celebrate some of the amazing and hard-working people who work in disability services.
They may be full-time, part-time, casual or contractor. From frontline support to allied health and management or co-ordination, all roles are eligible to be entered.
The workmate of the year is:
Someone who delivers outstanding support
Someone who goes the extra mile
Someone who is a pleasure to work alongside, and
Someone who makes the workplace better.
