STAFF EXCELLENCE AWARD – Regional Maritime University

Employee of the Year Award is an annual recognition of outstanding employees of the Regional Maritime University from among the two main employee resource groups (ERG); Academic and Non-Academic Staff. The idea behind honoring RMU employees at the University’s annual congregation is in recognition of their work and to also motivate them to continue with the same passion. The reward will acknowledge employees efforts, hard work and behaviors at the workplace that have contributed to the University’s success and objectives in some way.  In reciprocity, employees will strive towards these rewards with consistent behavior throughout the year.

The 2017 recipients were honoured at the 11th Congregation held on Saturday, 10th June, 2017 by the Chancellor of the University, Hon. Kwaku Ofori Asimah who is also the Chairman of the RMU Board of Governors and Minster of Transport, Republic of Ghana.

Congratulations to Messrs Eric Duncan, Michael Dzikunu, Francis Huago and Mrs. Juliana Denyo.
