2018 Innovation Award Winners
Once again employees whose Innovations have delivered improvements to Tomago’s business operations were recognised and rewarded on Friday at the 5th annual Innovation Awards presentation in the Starlight room at Wests, New Lambton.
In all, a total of 302 employees were nominated, either for an Individual category or as part of a team.
In previous years, the overall winner has been an individual, however this year it was the Pacman Waste Team that were the overall winners on the night, receiving a Trophy each, a Team plaque and they will also receive an exclusive Team event as their reward.
Our individual category winners also received a Trophy and a $2,500 Travel voucher and Team category winners will also be rewarded with a team event.
