City proud of staff achievements<p>​</p><span><p>Eighty-five employees received their awards personally on Friday, 3 June 2022 while 15 will be attending the virtual ceremony on Friday, 10 June 2022.</p><p>The City has been recognising external opportunities for many years, however, in 2013, it hosted its first award ceremony to honour employees who completed their studies, including those who received financial support from the City bursary system and those who receive funding elsewhere or are self-funded. </p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="" alt="" style="width:951px;" /> </figure></span><span><p><br>The recognition is in alignment to the City’s Intergrated Development Plan objectives and strategic focus areas of an Opportunity City and a Well-run City. Maintaining this standard means investing in our greatest resource, namely our employees.</p><p>‘I want to applaud the 100 employees from different directorates who, collectively, represent the diversity within the City. Seeing this group made me proud to be part of a City that provides opportunities to uplift and empower the leaders of tomorrow. It is a beautiful sight indeed. It gives me great pleasure to be standing here today and recognising these employees for their efforts and remarkable achievements. I know it came at a price – some of them persevered under very challenging and risky situations, including the Covid-19 pandemic. </p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="" alt="" style="width:951px;" /> </figure></span><span><p>‘It is encouraging to see such a large number of employees who have pulled through and who are already applying their newly acquired skills to maximise service delivery to the communities of Cape Town. The City aspires to be the best and most sought after employer. However, this would not be possible without employees with the right skill set. Thus, we encourage employees to make the most of the opportunities at their disposal. We are committed to creating a compelling environment and seeing all talent thrive,’ said Alderman Uys. </p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="" alt="" style="width:951px;" /> </figure></span><span><p>The City is currently engaged in projects that will empower members of staff with skills in the future and this will impact the realisation of bringing the right people with the right set of skills and competencies in the right place at the right time. </p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="" alt="" style="width:951px;" /> </figure>​​</span><span>​​</span><span>​​</span><span><strong>​​End</strong></span>2022-06-02T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891d;GP0|#ec796ef5-2baf-48fb-86c2-54dbc1fd30d7;L0|#0ec796ef5-2baf-48fb-86c2-54dbc1fd30d7|Achievements and awardsGP0|#290483af-dc81-4ec3-8f05-c3457f11c848;L0|#0290483af-dc81-4ec3-8f05-c3457f11c848|achievements and awards;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#bcf6c414-11ef-4095-a37c-e9c4fa64d4c4;L0|#0bcf6c414-11ef-4095-a37c-e9c4fa64d4c4|city employee10
