Posted by Netmatters

Notable of Notables October 2020 - Netmatters

The highlight of every month here at Netmatters is the announcement of the "Notable of Notable Employees". This award is given to a single employee who has gone above and beyond during the previous month. They have exceeded expectations in their day to day role or have been influential in the company’s success.

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. As we enter the second phase of lockdown our exceptional team continue to adapt to their situation with their usual positive attitude. As ever, our notable nominees have done this and more, going above and beyond.

Our Notable of Notable nominees provides a calm approach to everything she does and is always helpful, cheerful and consistently delivers exceptional work.
