For almost 50 years Ian Huett has been committed to training and advancing his team of employees at Deloraine Amcal Pharmacy.
During the pandemic this has remained the case, with community pharmacies remaining open with staff available and ready to assist as part of the frontline response.
Now, the team's efforts have been recognised with the business named Small Employer of the Year at the 2020 Skills Tasmania, Tasmanian Training Awards.
The awards recognise the state's best apprentices, trainees, vocational students, teachers, trainers as well as training providers and employers.
Mr Huett said it was important to ensure staff received training across a wide range of disciplines.
"Training provides deeper understanding of the role being performed, increases job satisfaction, customer care and results in a direct positive impact to the pharmacy performance," he said.
Mr Huett has a number of pharmacists undergoing professional education and training so they can deliver recognised medication review services performed in the community.
Deloraine Amcal Pharmacy will now compete against other state and territory winners in the Australian Training Awards to be held next month.
