Well done to Katarzyna (Kate) Dzik, our October 2019 EOTM (Employee of the Month).
Praise from colleagues cited Kate’s strong team work, helpfulness, professionalism, accuracy and for going above and beyond. Kate spent her own time creating code to help improve a laborious internal process. Well done Kate for being our October 2019 EOTM, richly deserved.
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.
As you can probably tell from the photos, we try to present the awards at our High Wycombe HQ. This is done to allow colleagues to gather round, and offer their congratulations to the winner. It is also a great opportunity to learn about the winner’s achievements. Normally Steve, our MD, reads out a summary of the reasons the nominations were given, however if he is unavailable then another Director will present the award. This is great for team spirit and especially good for those team members who spend much of their time on site.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
