Six SA businesses win CRS Australia Employer Awards

20 August 2010

Six businesses from South Australia won CRS Australia Employer Awards today, for their outstanding commitment to employing people with disability. These businesses were presented their awards by CRS Australia’s Deputy General Manager, Carl Princehorn, and SA Divisional Manager, Peter Davies, at the annual CRS Australia Partnership Breakfast.

Winning employers were selected based on their creativity, innovation and commitment to providing training and employment opportunities for people with a disability, injury or health condition.

Mr Davies said, ‘Congratulations to those employers who have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to finding training and employment opportunities for our job seekers. Without their continued support and dedication, CRS Australia couldn’t achieve such positive results’.

‘Our employers are so valued and should be extremely proud of their achievements,’ said Mr Davies.

‘The partnership between employers, job seekers and CRS Australia leads to success for individuals and the broader community. We thank employers for their ongoing support,’ added Mr Davies.

The following six winners were announced on Friday 20 August:

  • Café De Paris, Oaklands Park
  • Employ Youth, Fullarton

  • Whyalla Garden Centre, Whyalla Playford
  • Alexam Place Supported Residential Facility, Salisbury East
