Afford Australian Disability Enterprises (ADEs) are supportive and welcoming workplaces. They are places where people with disability can share their unique talents to enjoy meaningful work, learn new skills, earn their own money. Many of our supported employees love to socialise with friends in a work environment and have formed lifelong friendships.
At Afford, we understand that everyone has a talent to share and we love to celebrate and encourage the achievements of our employees.
Celebrating Employee Achievement
That’s why, every month, employees are nominated for the esteemed titles of Employee of the Month, Achiever of the Month and our Eagle Eye Award.
Employees are nominated for their commitment to their work roles and responsibilities and for pushing themselves to let their abilities soar!
Employee of the Month
Douglas from Ingleburn ADE is a recent recipient of The Employee of the Month Award. He received this award for coordinating technical aspects of jobs and for going that extra mile to work an extra day a week to ensure tasks were completed.
Achiever of the Month
Sarah, another Ingleburn ADE Employee, received the Achiever of the Month Award for always being ‘the quiet achiever’ and getting the job done on time.
Eagle Eye Award
The Eagle Eye Award is another special accolade that acknowledges employees like Anthony, who are the eyes on the ground; always checking and making sure customer jobs are going out correctly.
Like every achievement at Afford, these awards are celebrated with everyone at the site. Our ADE staff put on a BBQ lunch at their sites across Sydney and each award recipient is presented with their certificate and gift voucher by Afford’s Executive Manager Commercial Services, Gordon.
Socialise and Make Friends in the Workplace
Everyone loves getting together for these award celebrations. It’s a great chance to recognise employees for their efforts, but also to socialise and strengthen bonds with fellow employees. Plus, the BBQ lunch is always a winner and gets everyone in a good mood for the rest of the day!
The ADE awards are about recognising employees for their amazing efforts. Afford manages five ADE sites across Sydney which support businesses with packaging, labelling, pallet and distribution services.
Supporting People with Disability Enjoy Work
Through our ADEs, we are able to support close to 500 employees gain a sense of purpose, fulfilment and independence through their job. We are proud to be the largest employer of people with a disability in the Sydney metropolitan area.
