Long Service Awards

As part of TRAC’s 15th Anniversary year festivities, awards were given to long serving employees.

To celebrate TRAC’s recent successes, 5, 10 and 15 year awards were presented to our staff for their contributions and achievements over the years. TRAC recognises the extensive knowledge our long term staff hold about the business as well as their skills and experience. We want to retain our staff members and their ability to move the company forward with it’s growth and development plans in 2015.

People have always been at the centre of TRAC and its values which include loyalty, achievement and personal development. Our recent ‘Investors in People’ accreditation also acknowledges TRAC to be a positive and enjoyable place to work where we get the best performance from both our office and field staff.

TRAC also gave contract service awards to technicians working long term on Chevron assets. Chevron is one of our longest standing customers and the technicians show dedication in delivering best in class performance. The whole team have developed real relationships with the client and the workscopes benefit from having the same dedicated technicians on the project. Our clients are always impressed with the competency of the technicians we supply on a regular basis and their willingness to work, assisting with various tasks beyond the workscope when requested.
