Five winning teams have been recognised at this year’s TIC Awards.

The event, now in its second year, saw the Schools’ Staff Absence Scheme team, Web team, Pest Control team, Complex Needs team and Makerspace team each receive framed certificates for their achievements in demonstrating projects which reflected Transformation, Innovation and Change.

The winners attended a special award ceremony led by Chief Executive Mark James, in Ffwrnes Theatre, Llanelli, on Wednesday, October 3.

Video case studies of each project were showcased during the event and brief presentations were made by each team who were then presented with the certificates by the council’s Deputy Leader and Executive Board Member for TIC, Cllr. Mair Stephens.

A special ‘Overall Winner’ plaque, sponsored by We are Lean and Agile, was also presented to the Makerspace Team for the success of their project.

The team emphasised how they managed to breathe new life into libraries across Carmarthenshire and how they’ve moved away from traditional thinking and introduced innovation and creativity to the heart of their communities. The project also illustrated the co-production between two departments with the Complex Needs team have benefitted from engaging in services within their own community.

In addition, Certificates were also presented to staff members Simon Williams, Sue Watts, Les James, Alex Machin, Alan Howells, Julie King and Stuart Willis, who have worked closely with the TIC Team, and successfully completed the Academi Wales ‘Continuous Service Improvement - Practitioner’ course.

Speaking about the event, council Leader Cllr Emlyn Dole said: “The TIC Awards is a great way to celebrate our staff successes and achievements and to illustrate that through hard work, dedication, creativity and by introducing new ways of working, we can achieve great success.”

Deputy Leader, Cllr Mair Stephens added: “As the Executive Board Member for TIC since it started, I’ve been very fortunate to witness at first hand some of the amazing work being undertaken as part of the TIC programme. The TIC awards last year went a long way to raise the profile of the transformational work that has taken place and this years’ award winners will also make a significant contribution to raising awareness of positive changes taking place across a range of services. Congratulations to all.”
