Shyann and SunPork Farms shine at training awards

WESTERN Downs Regional Council trainee Shyann Doyle and SunPork Farms Tong Park have both been recognised for their efforts in 2018 at the Darling Downs South West Regional Trainee of the Year Awards.

Miss Doyle won the Trainee of the Year Award and has now set her sights on taking out the state title.

Shyann started her traineeship with the council early last year and is now a permanent staff member working within the communities department.

"Staff members from Western Downs Regional Council attended the awards evening along with my family, so I felt really supported in this journey,” Miss Doyle said.

"My dad was jumping out of his seat with joy when my name was announced.

"This awards process has given me a lot more confidence, as well as realising what I am capable of in terms of my professional development.”

SunPork Farms Tong Park took out the award for Medium Employer of the Year for the second year in a row.

"Our specialised training is one aspect that sets us apart from other businesses, and this award confirms that the extra time and investment that we make is worthwhile,” Operations manager Rob Martyn said.

"We have developed and refined our training model so that each member is trained in site-specific tasks, tailored to a range of staff needs.”
