End-of-Year Awards & Recognition at Mirus Australia

July 31, 2019 | People at Mirus Australia

Tali Short, an associate professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at University College London says “when we expect something good, our brain initiates a “go” signal. This signal is triggered by dopaminergic neurons deep in the mid-brain that move up through the brain to the motor cortex, which controls action.” In other words, to be rewarded in our lives, whether with a slice of cheesecake, a hug from a loved one or a promotion at work, we need to take action. 

 At Mirus Australia, we recently recognised members of our team that take action every day to support our vision of #Makingagedcarebetter and the whole team were excited to recognise each of their individual achievements.

The Super Star is an individual who consistently rises above the challenge of their role and delivers exceptional service (internally or externally) with energy and enthusiasm. On receiving this award, Sandeep says,  “First year of migration to Australia was tough personally and professionally with a lot of challenges. Thanks to everyone who supported me through thick and thin. To get recognised for all the hard work definitely means a lot and also gives the motivation to do it again this year.”
