ZIM Marketing and Membership Manager, Viola Musariri, said her organisation was inviting submissions for the accolade at the moment. “We are advising the nation that we are looking for people that we feel are suitable to be manager of the year. If you know somebody that excelled in a management position in 2009, then hand in their name and contact details,” she said.
“The manager of the year will be judged on profitability of their organisation, growth of the organisation, and human resources development of the organization. There are about 10 areas that are considered. We will be looking for quality in terms of good social responsibility, economic development, personal development of the nominated individual,” she said. The manager of the year award is the most prestigious award of the ZIM.
