Supervisor of the Year, Henry Scantlebury and Employee of the Year, Tiffani Straker, enjoying their time in the spotlight with Managing Director, Peter Williams.

When the curtain fell on the 24th Annual Awards Ceremony held at the Hilton Barbados on February 6, 2009, Tiffani Straker and Henry Scantlebury had emerged as Employee and Supervisor of the Year respectively - titles earned previously by both employees.

Tiffani, earned the award of Employee of the Year for 2007, while Henry, took top honouors as Supervisor of the Year in 1989. Tiffani, a Database Analyst is a key and valuable member of the Information Systems Department of the Barbados Light & Power Co. Ltd. She served in the post as a Programmer / Analyst I from the December 1, 2002 and was promoted in April 2007 to the post of Database Administrator. For the timeframe under consideration for the award of Employee of the Year, Tiffani performed exceptionally well in the Department. Her high level of intelligence and ability to complete tasks efficiently served the section well.

Tiffani proved to be a fast learner and a good team player's evidenced in her ability to get along with other people, her technical knowledge, her willingness to tackle problems and her speed in doing so. She has worked on several important Company teams and is a member of the Employee Relations Council and the Supervisory Committee of the Light & Power Credit Union. During the testing phase for Project CARE, a customer service and billing programme, there was an issue, which prevented users from accessing any of the testing environments.

Though not the Database Analyst assigned, Tiffani had to quickly research, troubleshoot and resolve this problem (which she did successfully) with little technical knowledge beforehand of the issues to be dealt with. She was also instrumental in developing the interface, which updates CC&B with payment information received from our various payment agencies. Tiffani has gained a reputation within the Information Systems Department for getting work done quickly.

Her ready smile, her extremely pleasant demeanour, and the ease with which she gets on with her colleagues, have all positively contributed to the overall morale of her Section.

Henry Scantlebury, who joined the Company on May 14, 1979 currently holds the position of Shift Charge Supervisor in the Generation Department. During the review period, Henry played a pivotal role in getting the trainee Plant Attendants and trainee Equipment Operators up to speed to progress through their training programme and facilitated a two-week course entitled Electrical Fundamentals which was a course heavily requested by employees.

Henry's vast knowledge of the new Low Speed Diesel B plant makes him the "go to" person when troubleshooting is necessary and is constantly making suggestions to improve the overall efficiency of the plant. One such suggestion related to the modification of portable water storage system at Spring Garden to provide more capacity and efficient operation of the water system.

Henry has good interpersonal relationships with his team members and other co-workers and is very approachable. He has a keen interest in finding out how things work and sharing his knowledge with others.

Whether it is related to auto-mechanics, electrical installation, construction, renewable energy or a range of other areas, Henry always has some information or advice to share.

Tiffani and Henry are indeed an amazing duo, who may well feel a sense of pride in their success, for they represent the "best of the best", standing above a cadre of other dedicated kilowatt employees, whose work, loyalty, commitment and long service were also recognised during the Ceremony.

Employee contributions in those areas, together with awards presented for Customer Service, Perfect Attendance and Volunteerism, made for a full package of reward and recognition "a celebration of our greatest assets" our people, who expend tremendous effort for the good of the Company.
