Local employee Rachael Miria has won the Puma Energy Global Award.
Miria, from Kivori village in Central and team leader for stocks, won the award from 50 nominations received by the international company.
Human resource manager Ellenor Iutiko said it was an initiative by the company launched this year. Iutiko said Miria won the Step-Up Award which was one of the six categories of the company’s global awards.
“She was nominated by her peers and we only supported it to get through to the regional and global level,” Iutiko said.
Miria was one of the three Papua New Guineans short-listed for the major award. The other two officers were from the community affairs and safety units.
“Unfortunately she didn’t make it to Geneva to receive her award but we are proud of her achievement and this is in recognition for her efforts and her commitment to the company.”
Miria said: “I am very proud and it’s an excellent initiative by the Puma management to have this recognition for employees.
“It’s been a long journey and exciting too. We’ve had tough times as a business from where it was to what it is now.
“We’ve made it as a team to earn the reward. The awards are about building the Puma spirit.”
