DMA Group Celebrating Excellence: Awards & Recognition
Honouring Our Team’s Accomplishments
Our annual Christmas gathering this year was an opportunity to not only spread festive spirit, but also to spotlight the considerable accomplishments of our DMA Group team members. We held an awards ceremony, which celebrated those who have made significant contributions in their fields, across four categories. Each category was created with the intent of acknowledging the varied talents and skills within our team. These awards are not merely a token of appreciation, but a demonstration of the respect we hold for our team members who make DMA Group the success it is today in driving change for better.
The nominations for the awards were all the more special as they were not determined by the upper management alone, but rather, they originated from the very peers and colleagues our awardees work with day-to-day.
DMA Group’s Rising Star
The ‘Rising Star Award’ is specifically tailored towards newcomers. It is awarded to someone who, despite having less than a year’s tenure at DMA Group, has demonstrated an impressive dedication to their role and made significant strides in their contribution to the team’s success. This category recognises the effort and expertise of those who bring fresh perspectives and innovative ideas to our workplace.

She quickly settled into the team and made an immediate impact by improving communication between planning and procurement. Alex’s friendly and approachable nature, combined with her willingness to help others, makes her a joy to work with. She has consistently worked efficiently under pressure, resolving issues and juggling multiple responsibilities, including training new staff members. Alex’s enthusiasm, availability, and commitment to going above and beyond for her colleagues and the job makes her one of the best planners ever.
