“I am very humbled to win this award knowing how many great people work in this industry. After being in the business for only a short period of time, it proves that dedication and hard works pays off... When I first joined ATS back in 2014, it was just supposed to be a fun summer job. I never expected to make a career out of it… but here I am, six years and three positions later. Sometimes you need to try different things, to understand what you really want.”

As a result, they become prouder and improve self-esteem on how they conduct their job duties.

We were overwhelmed by the grace and persistence of our team, subject matter experts from different employment grades who have gone through so much tests and trials achieving this success today.  Winning the GHI award has certainly given a word-class recognition to our good work; growing confidence with our stakeholders.”
