Department of Legislature wins achievement award for the second time

Staff of the Fijian Parliament have been reminded that the road to excellence requires a consolidated effort, perseverance and sacrifice.

In congratulating the staff and their families for the job well done, Secretary-General to Parliament Mrs Viniana Namosimalua said the achievement award received by the Department of Legislature at the Fiji Business Excellence Awards (FBEA) over the weekend at the Sheraton Fiji Resort and Spa was another opportunity of lifting the bar in terms of service delivery and productivity.

This is the second time that the Department has received the award.

“This is a tremendous achievement and I want to thank you all and your families for what you have done so far,” Mrs Namosimalua told the staff.

“It is a great achievement for us as we progress as an organisation with continuous improvement and being recognised by achieving an award is something great for the organisation.”

“We have come a long way as an organisation and when we started in 2014, we had little knowledge of how things were done around here but now, seeing how we have progressed, it’s really been a wonderful journey.”

“This Achievement award is a recognition of our hard work and sacrifices and we are one step away from the Prize level. This means that we must progress together with more hard work, perseverance and consolidated efforts to enhance excellence in our service delivery.”

Mrs Namosimalua added that the Speaker Hon. Dr Jiko Luveni was also excited about the news and had conveyed her sincere gratitude to the staff.

Meanwhile, in an official letter to Mrs Namosimalua, Leader of Opposition Hon. Ro Temumu Kepa also congratulated the staff for their invaluable services to the Members of Parliament and the public at large.

“The award is a culmination of success through team work.”

“It is an extraordinary achievement befitting the dignity and decorum of our Parliament and I take this opportunity to thank and congratulate all those who have been part of this success story,” Hon. Kepa said.
