Part of the family

Adelaide’s finest supermarkets recently thanked its longest-standing staff members for the commitment, dedication and enthusiasm they show in their jobs and for their colleagues and community.

The Chapley family hosts the annual Chapley Service Award Ceremony which rewards employees with a celebratory badge to recognise their years of service and significant contribution to the company.

The badge incorporates the company logo, the wing, which is seen on the shirts of all employees at Frewville and Pasadena.

The wing represents the Greek myth of Daedalus and Icarus. Director Spero Chapley says the story tells us that the strength of a human being has no limits… but also that we should be very careful how to use it.

“The wing as a symbol means a lot to us. It celebrates our belief that we all do our best when our actions spring from our own values,” Spero says.

The recent badge ceremony recognised staff who work across a range of operations at Frewville and Pasadena stores. Kym Bishop (Pasadena) has chalked up 30 years while Peter Commatas and Catherine Whelan (Pasadena) have both achieved 20 years’ service.

Maria Haniotis (Frewville), Janine Campbell (Pasadena) and Jueyenne Staltari (Pasadena) celebrate 15 years’ service. There were 13 employees who received their 10-year badge and 44 were awarded a 5 year badge in the recent ceremony. A full list of all badge holders will be published in the next edition of Locale.
