National Star Awards

The Shaw Star Awards first began back in 2008 where it was an idea to recognise individuals within a region at Shaw healthcare who demonstrated excellence in their day to day work or during the course of the year; people who inspired others and delivered beyond expectations.

The annual event has grown from a regional affair to a well-known, sponsored national award ceremony where each employee at Shaw healthcare hopes to be nominated for an award.

The way in which the event has expanded is testament to the increasing amounts of good care that we get told about each year; stories of personal achievement, dedication and genuine care. Aside from the occasional piece of negative press coverage relating to the industry there is lots of fantastic care taking place up and down the country on a daily basis, the Star Awards aim to shine a light on those inspirational individuals and teams.

The event has evolved over the years following feedback from employees, residents and their families too. New award categories are occasionally added to reflect the changing face of care and how our business is adapting with it.

Our gratitude is extended to our sponsors, without whom the Shaw Star Awards would not be possible.
