April Notable Employee

It's the beginning of May which means only one thing here at Netmatters - announcing the winner of "Notable of Notable Employees" for April 2020. This award is given to a single employee who has exceeded expectations in their day to day role or has been influential in the company's success during the previous month. 

Every department manager is asked to nominate an employee from their department, who they feel has done exceptionally well during the course of the previous month. Each one of these employees is then considered as a candidate for this award. This month, things are a little different to usual but it was important that we still recognised the hard work of our employees.

The Notable of Notables is presented to a member of staff who has been been doing an excellent job all round working hard throughout. This month's Notable of Notables is awarded to Bethany Shakespeare!
