Scrivens recognises staff with top award

The Sasha Georgevic Award recognises the outstanding contribution of an individual to the business or customers

Scrivens award recipient 2019
Scrivens Opticians and Hearing Care has awarded its top accolade to the lead analyst on the company’s IT helpdesk, Raj Morar.

The Sasha Georgevic Award is presented at Scrivens’ annual managers’ conference in memory of the late chairman and father to present chairman, Nicholas Georgevic, and director Mark Georgevic.

It recognises the outstanding contribution of an individual to the business or customers and dedication to the company.

Speaking about the winner, Mark Georgevic explained: “Raj joined the business in 1997 and was a popular choice to receive the award for his work ethic and positive attitude. One of many nominations received described him as being genuinely happy to help no matter the issue or time of day. He is a worthy recipient.”

Mr Morar is based at Scrivens House in Edgbaston where he provides IT support for branch staff and tests in-house optical software.

Speaking about the accolade, Mr Morar said: “I was not expecting it at all; it made me quite emotional. I really like it when I help people out and the award shows how much they appreciate it.”

Mr Morar’s mother, Pattie Morar, is also a long-serving member of Srivens, having worked there for over 40 years in the accounts department.
