Congratulations to Alex Paris, voted our Employee of the Month for February 2019.
Comments from his colleagues included mentions of his super proactive and positive attitude. His great PC skills and approachability were also appreciated. The time Alex takes to update people and let them know timescales for resolution of their issues was also valued. Well done Alex.
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, we felt extra recognition was needed for employees who have demonstrated exceptional dedication have gone above and beyond their remit. This could be either in the month of the award or over an extended period of time. Nominations are requested each month; the votes are counted and all comments are noted. These are then 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 allows colleagues to gather, when the award is presented to congratulate and applaud the winner. It is also an opportunity to learn about the winner’s achievements. Normally Steve, our MD, reads out a summary of the reasons the nominations were given. If Steve is unavailable, 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. You can do this by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
