Snowy Hydro has been recognised as an ABA100 Winner in The Australian Business Awards 2016 in two categories – Community Contribution and Communication Excellence.
This is the sixth time Snowy Hydro has been recognised by the Australian Business Awards for its Community Partnerships Program.
The Community Partnerships Program targets investment where it will have a positive impact and generate long-term benefits for the communities of the Snowy Mountains region. The program includes support for the Snowy Hydro SouthCare Rescue Helicopter, Cooma Universities Centre, Young Driver Training as well as local festivals and events.
Managing director and CEO Paul Broad said the award affirms the company’s commitment to taking care of the communities in which it operates.
“The vitality and economic viability of these communities is critically important to Snowy Hydro as these are the towns where our staff and their families live and work,” he said.
Snowy Hydro was also recognised as an ABA100 Winner in the Communications Excellence category for its Snowy Hydro NEWS quarterly community newsletter.
Each year the ABA100 Winners are recognised through a variety of award categories that demonstrate transformative business and product innovation. A focus is placed on initiatives that have a demonstrable transformative effect both internally within the business and externally in the wider business community.
