Workmate of the Year – the winner!
Congratulations to all the entrants and finalists in carecareers’ inaugural Workmate of the Year.
The response from people working in the disability, aged care and community sector was truly overwhelming. We had more than 200 entries from across Australia representing the very best in our sector. The nominations contained heartwarming stories of an amazing group of dedicated, selfless people, but in the end there can be only one winner.
The 2016 Workmate of the Year is Katelyn Budrys from Blue Cross in Victoria.
Katelyn is described as ‘always cheerful, friendly, kind, caring, and helpful and will go out of her way to do extra special things for her colleagues and residents. The passion that Kate displays in her job is amazing.’
There were more than 700 votes for Katelyn and she will soon receive her prize of an iPad, with another iPad for Wendy Starkey who nominated our winner.
We would like to congratulate Katelyn for her contribution to their workplace and we’d also like to thank all the entrants and everyone who nominated a worker.
The carecareers team
