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 the world begins to return to some kind of normality, our team all continue to adapt and deliver at the very highest levels. As ever, our notable nominees have stood out from the crowd and gone above and beyond.

Our Notable of Notables in September has stepped up to help on one of the bigger Netmatters IT projects, our own admin system, and has done so with thought and consideration. This month's Notable of Notables is awarded to Stef Lynn-Smith!
