THE staff of the Ministry of iTaukei Affairs last night celebrated the end of another successful year in style.

Speaking at the ministry’s awards night, Minister for Youth and Sports Laisenia Tuitubou stressed on the importance of team work and resilience.

He said the key feature of a culture of excellence was collaborative both internal and external.

“We all work together towards a common organisational vision,” Mr Tuitubou said.

“Most employees tend to lose their focus on the organisational vision when changes occur. Culture of excellence is about being adaptable and developing the flexibility to deal with change.”

The ministry’s permanent secretary, Naipote Katonitabua, acknowledged individual staff for their hard work and contribution and said it was imperative for them to keep the momentum on the journey towards excellence.

The event was held at Novotel Hotel convention in Lami.
