Pride of Workmanship

Pride of Workmanship is an approved Rotary project instigated in 1975 by the Rotary Club of Pennant Hills, District 9680, NSW, Australia.

The Pride of Workmanship Program enables managers in our society to help employees achieve the goal of job satisfaction and publicly recognise them for their efforts.

Participating businesses promote the Pride of Workmanship theme of “Do it once – do it well” throughout their organisation and nominate employees worthy of recognition, not only within the organisation, but the wider community. Nominees of the Pride of Workmanship Program are presented with a trophy in recognition of their achievements.

The objectives of the Program are:

  • To promote Vocational Service.
  • To encourage Pride of Workmanship in all vocations.
  • To provide employers with an opportunity to recognise employees who display the qualities worthy of an Award.
  • To encourage favourable employer/employee relationships and a sense of community pride in individual achievement.
  • To provide an opportunity for Rotary to be involved in the community, particularly the business community.

The Program Guide (which can be obtained from the Rotary Club of Pennant Hills) contains a complete step-by-step plan for organising your Club’s Pride of Workmanship Program.

The manual contains necessary information about:

  • Approaching businesses.
  • Nomination forms.
  • Selecting awardees.
  • Conducting a presentation dinner.
  • The range of official trophies available.
  • Sample letters for a successful program.

The Rotary Club of Nunawading, District 9810, recently conducted their version of this program and considered it a great success.
