ENNIS woman Carmel Harnett was among 90 workers honoured for their dedication in the 2014 GEM Awards, (Going the Extra Mile), presented this week by ISS.
GEM Awards recognise the valuable contribution of employees involved in workplace supports such as cleaning, catering, security, pest control and property services.
Silver Olympic medal winner, boxer Kenny Egan, introduced this year’s GEM awards for ISS, a major provider of outsourced businesses. He said that people who work in essential support services are generally the unsung heroes of the workplace.
“Their efficiency can sometimes go unnoticed, but without them the business could not function,” he stated.
Carmel, who works in security, impressed the awards panel with her friendly and courteous manner in interacting with the public and her high level of performance and work attitude.
