Cootharinga’s “Above & Beyond”  Employee of the Month Program

Cootharinga's Vision is, "building a better world with people of all abilities!"

Our Values are:

Valuing all Abilities - We proactively work towards our vision

Innovation and Creativity - We value and pursue innovative and creative ideas

Team Spirit - We build positive and supportive teams through trust, respect and valuing each other

Respect - We respect all cultures, people and diversity

Integrity - We believe in, promote and consistently pursue the highest ethical and professional standards

Positive partnerships - We seek, develop and strengthen partnerships for positive change

Based on our vision, values and personal development initiatives, Cootharinga has introduced an employee of the month program.  We recognise and value our staffs abilities and the efforts they put in to making Cootharinga the outstanding organisation it is today.  Our staff are our shining stars, our champions of the cause and out of the box thinkers.  For a staff member to be a recipient of an "Above and Beyond Monthly Award",  is a reflection of their attitude, dedication and commitment to work.  Every month we will call for nominations for a different award category.  The winner will be acknowledged on this web page, in our staff newsletter.   From the 12 winners throughout  the year, an Employee of the Year will be recognised at our staff conference in December and hold that title for 12 months.
