Australia Day Awards

This year’s Australia Day Achievement Medallions were presented to the Australian Antarctic Division team responsible for the development, implementation and management of Assessment Centres — used as part of the selection process for Antarctic expeditioners. The citation reads: In recognition of the team’s significant role in the successful introduction of selection centres for the recruitment of Antarctic expeditioners, which has led to employment of people with much improved personal attributes and a corresponding increase in station harmony, quality of life and work effectiveness in Antarctica.
