New Horizons honors four employees for 25-Years of Service

Demonstrating ongoing support and recognition of the valuable contribution people with disability make to the community, Canon Australia will honor seventy employees at New Horizons Enterprises Limited - a leading Australian Disability Enterprise. The event will take place at the New Horizons Open Day, North Ryde on Friday 27th August 2010.

The New Horizons Business Services packaging team have been providing commercial packaging services to Canon Australia, for more than 6 years packaging up more than 70,000 PIXMA ink kits per month.

Canon Australia Managing Director, Mr Kenji Kobayashi, will present the team, who range in age from 20 to over 65, with Certificates of Appreciation. Canon will also celebrate with those who have reached a milestone in their careers. This year, four employees achieved an impressive 25 years of continuous service. They are Richard Baker of Denistone, Lisa Donnelly of Eastwood, Rosemary Graham of Eastwood and Deana Savvas of Eastwood.

The New Horizons Open Day, now in its third year, also gives carers, family and friends the opportunity to get together to experience the team's camaraderie and work environment.

"Canon's commitment to New Horizons and its employees is an example of us here at Canon putting our guiding corporate philosophy of kyosei - a way for all people, regardless of race, religion or culture, to live and work harmoniously together - into practice."

"Keeping the packaging of PIXMA ink kits local, as a way of supporting the disability-specific employment programs offered by New Horizons, is something that delivers great benefits back to the community, those at New Horizons and their families, and was an important consideration for Canon Australia."

"The open day gives Canon Australia the opportunity to personally acknowledge each individual's effort and say thank you," said Mr Kobayashi, Managing Director, Canon Australia.

"We are delighted to have Canon Australia, such a prestigious customer, turn to New Horizons for service," said Garry Pearce, New Horizons' Business Services Manager.

"Gaining meaningful work and vocational training in a supported environment is an effective way to achieve social inclusion, and where possible to lead to employment in the open labor market."

"The working relationship between Canon and New Horizons gives our employees a sense of pride and the chance to enhance their independence, leaving them less vulnerable to discrimination. At the same time Canon receives our commitment to quality and productivity."

By using an Australian Disability Enterprise, businesses have the opportunity to support people with a disability, while securing professional and high quality services at competitive prices. For further information,
