Every year on International Day of People with Disability we celebrate work milestones across our sites with Years of Service awards. In the lead up to IDPWD on December 3, we're shining the spotlight on some of our many dedicated clients who’ve notched up decades at Bedford!
Over in South Australia's South East region, you'll find charismatic Bedford client, Scott, working at our Millicent site.
Scott will receive his 20 Years of Service award on International Day of People with Disability.
Working in our busy commercial laundry, Scott's favourite role is using the press machine to press tea towels.
In fact, Scott is known as one of the team's best folders!
Outside of work, Scott is a talented ten pin bowler, often winning regional competitions and medals.
Always up for having fun and a good laugh, there's never a dull moment when Scott's around!
Thank you for your dedication to Bedford over the past two decades - we can't wait to see what else you achieve in coming years.
In Mount Gambier, team member Venessa hits 30 years with Bedford!
Venessa started in the timber mill and packaging areas stacking timber, sanding bed slats, and helping out across all packaging jobs.
Five years ago, Venessa moved into the kitchen area.
"I really enjoy sweeping, wiping down tables, getting the milk out of the fridge for break times, and making the noodles for my work friends," she says.
For Venessa, Bedford Mount Gambier is a safe and supportive place to work.
"I like my supervisors because they understand me and my needs at work. I love the group lunches we have for awards or special days as well."
Thank you for everything you do, Venessa!
