Achieving Excellence in any field of work demands passion, conviction and an insatiable desire for greatness and achievement which are invaluable prerequisites for any individual or organisation to succeed.

President Major-General (Ret’d) Jioji Konusi Konrote made these comments while delivering his keynote address at the 2020 Water Medal of Excellence Award at the FMF Gymnasium past Friday.

“Achieving Excellence, as we understand is not a result of wishful thinking or luck – rather, the outcome of setting realistic and positive goals – and of course working hard and smart towards the attainment of those goals, spurred on by good leadership!” he said.

He further said that the Water Authority of Fiji had done exceptionally well in recent times.

This despite numerous challenges and disruptions consequent upon the ravages of natural disasters (like Tropical Cyclones Winston, Harold, Yasa and Ana), to dedicate its efforts and focus on excellence in staff performance and product through an equally commendable service delivery capability to all customers.

“This daunting task has been on-going now for some time,” he said.

“As your President/Head of State, I would also like to formally acknowledge and thank each and every one of you for your individual and collective efforts in serving all citizens of our beloved Fiji well.

He told the high achievers that they had undoubtedly demonstrated to themselves, colleagues and superiors their determination and passion to continuously strive for excellence in their work and for this, we are most grateful and sincerely appreciative.

 

National building efforts

“Well done and thank you for your selfless contributions to Government’s overall Nation-Building efforts.

He said that the Water Medal Excellence Award was a necessary process and the ideal management practice which was crucial more than ever now in these difficult and trying times. This is to encourage innovation, improve productivity and better position the Water Authority of Fiji for positive and sustainable growth into the future.

President Konrote said he was so heartened to see the Water Authority of Fiji’s support of the Government’s initiative to promote and utilise Digital Fiji to enhance their public service delivery capability, thus making it more accessible and convenient to all Fijians.

He commended the Water Authority of Fiji for its introduction of e-payments and e-services to improve service delivery.

42 nominations were submitted for the 2020 Award.
