INTRODUCING Clicks’ 2018/19 Contractor of the Year, Pavan Jonnalagadda! Pavan was presented with his prize —a Bang & Olufsen Portable Speaker and Wireless Headphones Pack valued at $1,500—on Wednesday by Clicks’ Regional Manager, Nick Bacon, and Relationship Manager, Craig Favilla.
Pavan reached rarefied air in 2018, receiving not one, but two outstanding nominations from his managers at Children’s Health Queensland:
Adi: “Pavan’s professionalism and enthusiasm combined with his deep knowledge and dedication allowed the CHQ BI team to expand its BI capabilities greatly in the last 6 months. Furthermore, Pavan provides ongoing support and mentoring to team members which is already shown in their performance.
In April 2018, the CHQ BI team successfully went through its greatest milestone so far, and Pavan played a key role leading to this moment; going above and beyond to ensure the progress is on track and thriving for perfection.
Above all, Pavan is a pleasure to work with and we are very thankful to have him in our team. I can’t think about anyone more suitable to be named Contractor of the Year!”
Jason: “Pavan has been instrumental in our success in building the CHQ data warehouse. He has added real value to the team and not merely running through stock standard tasks, but providing leadership and guidance to the CHQ Business Intelligence Team. Pavan is an asset to our service and highly respected within the group. His work has made it possible for the team to build a platform for reporting from the integrated electronic medical record system.”
Nick and Craig took the opportunity to ask Pavan a couple of questions when they caught up.
Why do you enjoy working as an IT contractor?
“I enjoy being an IT contractor because I like to constantly learn things. Every assignment I work on gives me new skills and experiences, which helps me grow and develop professionally.”
What do you enjoy most about working at the Children’s Hospital?
“Working at the Children’s Hospital has been an amazing experience. I have got to create a data warehouse from scratch and the work that I do also has a direct impact on helping out front line staff in the hospital.”
They also found out that Pavan has recently become a father, capping off a great month for our Contractor of the Year!
Well done, Pavan, and thank you to everybody who submitted a nomination for this year’s Contactor of the Year – we received some incredible praise for our dedicated #Clicksters around the country and it brought us great joy reading these submissions.
