Tafta employees celebrate long service achievements

Long Service award recipient Nompilo Mkhize receives her 10 year service certificate from Tafta CEO Femada Shamam.

THE Association for the Aged (Tafta) celebrated the long service awards of two staff members at the Durban Country Club on Friday, 6 April.

The ceremony, which coincided with an annual staff update event, celebrated the many years of loyalty, commitment, and service of two particular employees, Renee Chislett and Nompilo Mhkize.

Femada Shamam, Tafta CEO, used the opportunity to praise the dedication of both employees who were recipients of 30 years and 10 years of long service respectively.

“Commemorating these memorable achievements in the Association’s 60th year of existence is a poignant event in Tafta’s history. With a total of 40 years of combined service, Tafta is proud and thankful to celebrate this achievement with our staff. It is said that there is no better work, than work in service to others, and we hope that you are rewarded for your dedication to Tafta for many lifetimes to come.”

As an organisation steeped in service, Tafta’s two recent long service employees join a lineage of long-serving staff committed to elder care in the organisation. “Between August last year and the most recent event held last Friday, Tafta has celebrated and acknowledged long service history of twenty three Tafta employees – ranging from 10 years of service to a staggering 40 years of service to Tafta,” Shamam said.

Questioned around her long standing service of 30 years to the company, Renee Chislett, Divisional Manager of Finance, said she remained loyal to the work Tafta does and the meaning it brought, and continues to bring to those it serves. Besides being a numbers person, Renee is also a proud mother and grandparent.

She is passionate about her German Shepherd dogs and is actively involved in obedience training. Over the years, she has also trained other dogs competitively, but has recently taken a break from this.

Nompilo Mkhize, who is a trained carer at Tafta’s John Conradie House frail care unit, celebrated 10 years of long service. Hailing from Durban’s Kwamakhutha, the mother of two boys aged eight and three, said she’s always been drawn to helping the elderly. “It has been a privilege for me to serve the elders at Tafta. In the last decade I have been exposed to so much and I am so grateful to Tafta for providing me with this opportunity.”
