The 2019 Employee of the Year - Jordan Rosser, Intensive Care Paramedic
Following a secondment as Acting Sector Duty Operations Manager in 2018, Jordan identified an opportunity to significantly enhance the way NSW Ambulance support their staff who have been exposed to traumatic incidents. Jordan conceptualised a way to strengthen the Significant Events Register so that managers and ambulance psychologists can better identify staff who have experienced repeated or high levels of exposure to vicarious trauma.
Despite Jordan's time in the Sector DOM role ending before he could complete the project, he remarkably managed to successfully build out and implement the model while working as a paramedic and undertaking his Intensive Care Paramedic training. Jordan has gone on to share the model across the organisation so that it can be implemented by other sectors.
"Jordan's efforts demonstrate his extraordinary commitment to the care of his colleagues and his commitment to NSW Ambulance," said Dr Dominic Morgan ASM.
In recognition of his achievement, Jordan was presented with a trophy and will be featured on the staff honours board for 12 months. He also receives $2,000, one night's accommodation in a hotel and an invitation to lunch with executives from NSW Ambulance and G&C Mutual Bank.
Congratulations to Jordan and each of the monthly award recipients from all of us at G&C Mutual Bank.
