Heroes Without A Cape Recognition Event Bermuda Nov 2019

Premier David Burt stated, “I offer my congratulations to everyone who was recognised during the first Heroes Without A Cape celebration. This was an opportunity to identify public officers who provide outstanding service to their colleagues and the general public.

“My Government believes hard work and dedication must be rewarded and we will continue to ensure deserving employees are celebrated for providing the best service possible.”

During the event, Dr. Derrick Binns, Head of the Public Service, said, “While so many public officers are worthy of recognition, today we are identifying those of you who were nominated by your colleagues. We are proud of you, as dedicated and professional team members who work hard to create a sense of unity within your departments every day.”

“Public Officers were asked to nominate colleagues, or Heroes, who consistently have a positive impact on their work environment. Colleagues wrote a 300-word description of specific instances that proved the nominees deserved special recognition.

Dr. Binns added, “Our heroes have excelled in creating healthy working relationships and a supportive environment in their respective departments. This, ultimately, helps to boost customer satisfaction within the organisation. Therefore it is my pleasure to offer congratulations to each person who was nominated. I look forward to hosting this reception in the future as we will make this an annual event to recognise the heroes amongst us.”

“Some of those celebrated at the event were nominated by more than one of their teammates.
