Pharmacy wins green award

From the Sudbury (ont.) Star:
A Greater Sudbury pharmacy manager has come up with a winning prescription.

Jenny-Lyn Faught, the frontshop manager of Health Care Pharmacy Pharmasave on Lasalle Boulevard, was named Outstanding Frontshop Manager or Staff in the 2008 Commitment to Care & Service Awards -- a national awards program hosted by Pharmacy Practice and Drugstore Canada, Canada's leading pharmacy magazines.

Faught has significantly boosted staff morale and performance since being promoted to the position four years ago, according to a testimonial letter submitted by Julie Lajeunesse, the pharmacy's regional operations manager.

To enter the awards competition, Faught collected 15 testimonials and also wrote a 750-word essay. She beat out dozens of people for the honour.

As frontshop manager, Faught oversees coaching and development of all staff. She also manages merchandising, team-leading and team-building, as well as design and revision of policies and procedures.

An avid environmentalist, Faught is proud of her store's recent attempts to become greener, including introducing biodegradable plastic bags earlier this year and staff creating a raincoat out of the old traditional plastic bags which will be up for auction. ...more
