The year is drawing to a close but before it does, I'd like to point your attention towards a few achievements by those here at Sentrian.
Here's a few achievements from the people who make Sentrian a better workplace.
A generation defined
We're always looking to build on our positive culture and environment. In fact, it's a key business priority for 2018. I believe a marker of a good workplace is having long-term staff. And this year was notable for a generation of the Sentrian team marking some significant milestones.
The first is Craig Roser. He has reached the impressive milestone of 20 years with Sentrian.
He always takes his no-nonsense, results-driven attitude to any task. He is the glue that keeps our systems together. Thanks Craig for your many years of service, I hope there are many more to come.
Furthermore, we've had several of the team reach 10 years of service. You've undoubtedly come across them before, and Sentrian wouldn't be Sentrian without them. They are:
- Tom Cowan
- Joel Franks
- Philip Page
- Graeme Wilson
I'd like to thank each of them for their hard work, and commitment to always put in extra effort when it's needed. I'm always awed by their work ethic and efforts to put a human face on the work of managed IT services.
Senturion of the Year
Each month, we recognise stand out work by our staff with the Senturion of the Month award. At the end of the year, one of those winners is selected as the Senturion of the Year. That person is someone who has gone far beyond their brief to benefit their colleagues, our clients and our business.
We're proud to announce the Senturion of the Year 2017 is...
James is an essential member of our Service Desk team. His dedication and persistence in seeing issues through has earned him a reputation for reliability. You may remember James joining Sentrian back in April, and it's safe to say he's made his mark.
I'm happy to say James had tough competition earning this title. I'd like to thank him and our other Senturions' of the Month who have repeatedly shown their hard work and skill every day of the year.
Sentrian reached 25
A milestone that was quietly reached this year was Sentrian marking its 25th anniversary. Under our original name, IBS InfoTech, Sentrian started in Toowong in February 1992.
Over the 25 years, William and I have seen the industry and business change dramatically. We're always looking to improve and develop, and we hope your experience reflects our efforts.
No matter your plans over the holiday period, I wish you and your families well. I'd like to thank you for your business this year and we look forward to serving you across the holiday and into 2018. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
