The 2021 Employee of the Year - Jo Knight, Procurement/Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) Relationship Manager
Jo was named the Employee of the Month for November 2021 when credited with helping to ensure staff have been protected with appropriate PPE throughout the pandemic, while maintaining her regular duties in procurement.
“For me, it's all about keeping paramedics safe. Not being an operational staff member, or on the frontline, this role allows me to keep them safe from the back end,” says Jo.
Jo has gone above and beyond to create her own algorithms for PPE usage, engage with on-road staff and work tirelessly to ensure urgent deliveries make it to the desired location.
On hearing she was the Employee of the Year winner, Jo said "I had happy-sad tears because I realised what a big moment it truly was,”.
In recognition of her achievement, Jo receives a $2,000 G&C Mutual Bank savings account. Congratulations to Jo from all of us at G&C Mutual Bank.
