simon wright wins notable employee


It's the beginning of April which means only one thing here at Netmatters - announcing the winner of "Notable of Notable Employees" for March 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 Simon Wright!

The Most Notable of Notable Employees

Simon Wright!

"Simon is delivering way above the call of duty" - Elliott Peacock

Simon Wright - 'Simon has been putting in an unbelievable amount of work recently helping one of our largest clients, in dealing with the orders they’ve received recently. This includes working until midnight on several occasions to ensure their customers get the correct notifications and the staff have everything they need to start their day. Excellent work Simon!  ' Adam Greer

"Doing a solid job keeping up with the ever changing landscape of one our biggest accounts, whilst still making sure he has time for team his team. Positive feedback from guys in the team" - Josh Ralph

"Simon has been working hard to keep one of our largest client's ordering and logistics to a manageable level as people have been panic buying stock. Simon has been required to work a lot of late nights and disruption to his evenings and weekends. As if that wasn’t enough he also received the news that he had to postpone his wedding in the middle of this which must have been tough. Sprinkle on home schooling of a couple of kids and you have a full day!. Thank you Simon for your continued exceptional effort". - James Gulliver

Well done Simon for all of your hard work throughout February!
