In recognition of the exceptional contributions and commitment of our employees, MRC Unit The Gambia will be organising 2015 Director’s Awards and Family Fun Day, on Saturday 5th December 2015.
The Director’s Awards and Family Fun Day will be celebrated in conjunction with the successful achievement of the Quinquennial 2016-2021 plan achieved in September 2015. This is a fantastic achievement as it ensures The Unit’s future which would not have been possible without the contribution of all MRC Unit The Gambia staff.
The day will feature awards intended to recognise long service and employees who exhibited exceptional performance or special efforts significantly beyond their regular duty requirements which is directly related to fulfilling MRC Unit, The Gambia’s mission.
Nominees will be awarded according to six specific categories which include: Long Service Awards, Research Leader of Tomorrow, Science Support, Inspirational Leader, Outstanding Team and G.E.M. Award (Going the Extra Mile). The day will also feature presentations of cash prizes for the winners who participated in providing original quality quotes for World World Quality Month.
As part of the MRC and ME wellbeing programme, the event will bring colleagues together for a wonderful day of celebration with the family. The day will include a variety of family friendly activities such as 100m race, wrestling, karoake, tug of war, akara, draughts, face painting for kids, and a lot more.
The opening remarks will be delivered by Professor Umberto D’Alessandro, Unit Director and the long service award will be presented by Mr Joan Vives Tomas, Director of Operations.
The event will be published in Local Newspapers and aired on Gambia Radio and Television Services (GRTS).
