Congratulations to Kathryn French, voted our August 2022 EotM (Employee of the Month).

Kathryn was praised by colleagues for her positive attitude, hard work and tenacity. She is fairly new to the team and has done a great job of driving improvements to make things better for her team. Well done, Kathryn, richly deserved.

When do you Nominate?

Normally staff are asked to nominate team members at the beginning of the month following the award, so for the August 2022 EotM award this would be in September. However, the holiday season and general business delayed the nominations and award presentation.

Staff are always asked to nominate their team-mate, with a reason why they think their colleague should win an award. As usual, we presented the award at our High Wycombe HQ in Halifax Road, after gathering staff together to witness the award presentation and hear the praise for our colleagues.

Why do we have an Employee of the Month award?

At Smartcomm we have a superb team, and our business success is testament to their dedication and hard work. However, for employees who have demonstrated exceptional dedication, professionalism, focus and have gone far above and beyond their remit, either in the month of the award or over an extended period of time, we felt extra recognition was needed.

Nominations are requested each month; the votes are counted, and all comments are noted (to be shared with the individual after the award is presented). We do not necessarily present an award every month. For months where very few votes are received and there is no clear winner, the award is not presented. We would rather miss a month than hand over an award for the sake of it.

If you have experienced exceptional service from one of our team, we would really appreciate it if you would please let us know by sending an email to
