DIS colleagues of the year
Six engineers have just been named as colleagues of the year at the yearly summer barbecue at DIS.
At the R&D company DIS all employees are appreciated and acknowledged for good work, extra effort or a good result in general, and in addition, each year six colleagues are appointed as colleagues of the year, where both management and colleagues select those colleagues who deserve an extra acknowledgement.
- Our employees are the most valued asset. They are the ones that ensure that we deliver the right solutions every day. And of course, we wish to acknowledge this, and we consider the colleague of the year award one of the ways we can show our appreciation, says Michael Gadeberg, Director and Partner at DIS.
At DIS’ yearly summer barbecue, where employees and their families participated, this year’s DIS colleagues were revealed, they are: Emil Kennemann Christensen, Nicholas John Kirwan, Dan Munk Gadensgaard, Louise Vang Edwards, Lars Brink Christensen and Magnus Baltzer Erlang.

It can be difficult for management to experience all the good deeds performed during a workday especially in regard to some of the more invisible values. Therefore, all employees are involved in selecting the DIS colleagues of the year. Employees are encouraged to vote for colleagues who they believe deserve an extra acknowledgement and state why they have chosen this colleague. The reasons are widely but have in common that the employee has been a good colleague and performed well towards customers and the overall work environment and has performed within the DIS values.
- When I heard my name I couldn’t believe my own ears. It’s obviously a great feeling to be singled out by your colleagues. However, there are a lot of dedicated people here, so the recognition is great, but every day it’s a team effort, says Louise Vang Edwards.
