Pickwick a major sponsor at annual TEFMA Grounds Workshop

Pickwick was a major sponsor of the Tertiary Education Facilities Management Association’s (TEFMA) annual Grounds Workshop at Deakin University on November 6 and 7.

Last week TEFMA held their 2019 Grounds Workshop. Hosted by one of our major clients, Deakin University at their Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus, this year Pickwick had the exciting opportunity to support the annual event as a major sponsor and exhibitor along with delegate attendees. And what a success it was.

More than 60 representatives from Australia and NZ attended the two-day professional development and networking workshop to hear industry contributions on improving campus environments and the campus experience through sustainability initiatives and technology.

As the facilities services provider to numerous primary, secondary and tertiary institutions across Australia, educational spaces are fundamental to our operations. Supporting industry events like the TEFMA Grounds Workshop gives us access to valuable information that helps us stay up to date and ahead of industry developments and supports our continual improvement.

It also gives us the opportunity to catch up with exiting partners and make new connections with like-minded professionals as we demonstrate our capabilities to a broad and engaged audience.

Through our support of TEFMA Pickwick also donated $500 to BrAshA-T to help raise awareness and funds for research. A-T (Ataxia-Telangiectasia) is a rare and complex genetic neurodegenerative disorder. To learn more about their research or donate, visit brashat.org.au.

Pickwick’s people secure top honours at BCSAA Qld Excellence Awards

Pickwick Group’s (Pickwick) Debra Brownhill and Ben Cassar secured top honours in their respective categories at the recent BCSAA Queensland Excellence Awards.

BSCAA recently held their 10th annual Queensland Excellence Awards to celebrate the outstanding contribution and achievements of employers and employees in contract cleaning and security.

This year Pickwick proudly nominated 5 of our hardworking team players, with Debra Brownhill and Ben Cassar securing top honours for their outstanding services.

Pickwick Group’s General Manager – QLD & NT, James Holder, congratulated the two for the hard work and dedication that ultimately led to their wins on the night.

“Although they have very different roles within Pickwick, both Debra and Ben share the same goal – that being to safeguard their clients from harm.”

“As the sole cleaner at the Qantas Joey Club Child Care Centre, Debra plays a vital part in protecting the health and safety of children and their carers, with her attention to detail and work ethic also recently acknowledged by Qantas through a letter of appreciation.”

“Ben works hard in security as portfolio supervisor to protect the safety of his clients and their future.”

“His professionalism, customer centric focus and commitment to quality and continuous improvement has seen him take on new duties in the compliance space and progress his career rapidly since starting with us just over 12 months ago.”

Pickwick would like to thank all our people for the excellence they demonstrate in their respective roles, day in and day out.

We know we can count on you, just like you can count on us.
