Birmingham employee receives Scrivens top award…

Submitted by on January 8, 2020 – 6:30 am |

Sasha Georgevic Award from Scrivens to Raj MorarA popular employee who comes to the aid of colleagues on a daily basis has been honoured by Scrivens Opticians & Hearing Care with its top accolade.

Raj Morar, lead analyst on the company’s IT helpdesk, was given a standing ovation when he received the Sasha Georgevic Award at its annual managers’ conference.

The award is given in memory of the company’s late chairman and father to present chairman, Nicholas Georgevic and director Mark Georgevic.

Nicholas said: “Raj joined the business in 1997 and was a popular choice to receive the award for his work ethic and positive attitude. One of many nominations received described him as being genuinely happy to help no matter the issue or time of day. He is a worthy recipient.”

Raj is based at Scrivens House, Edgbaston, providing IT support for branch staff and testing in-house optical software to ensure updates to its systems work well.

Delighted but also shocked by his award, Raj said: “I was not expecting it at all; it made me quite emotional. I really like it when I help people out and the award shows how much they appreciate it.”

Raj, who lives in Sparkhill, is not the only long-serving member of his family at Scrivens. His mother Pattie has worked in its accounts department for over 40 years.

The Sasha Georgevic Award is open for all Scrivens’ employees with a minimum of five years’ service and nominations are made by colleagues. Final selection is made by Nicholas and Mark Georgevic based on outstanding contribution to the business and / or customers, total commitment and all round dedication to Scrivens.

The family business was established in 1938 and has 180 stores in England and Wales, with over 1,100 employees. For more information, visit
