For all those following our EoM (Employee of the Month) awards, you might have noticed that we were on the quite side for the past couple of months. I can truly say that it has been a busy couple of months at UK2 and eventually we have decided on the Employee’s of the month for May, June and July. For some it may not be a surprise to see someone winning it for the first time or should I say for the “Second Time” round!
Let me introduce you to the Award Winners and if you have a minute or two to spare, you can read more about how and what their contributions were, for them to achieve this special award.
Last year UK2 launched the Employee of the Month scheme, and since then many wonderful members of UK2 staff have been honoured with the award. It was designed to acknowledge exceptional employees who go far beyond what is required to get the job done. In November 2006,
James truly is great, kickass and cool. He constantly ensures that UK2 customers are happy by getting their problems resolved swiftly. He is responsive and always on the case, no matter what time of day or night. No job is too big and he does everything with a smile.
This is why James is the winner of this months Employee of the Month Award.
Employee of the Month for June 2007 is awarded to:
Shaheen started working for UK2 in June 2006 and was originally involved in answering tickets and online chat for UK2 customers. His professional approach and dedication to offering a 1st class service to UK2 customers soon paid off, as Shaheen was promoted to Team Leader.
Recently, when UK2 faced some internal problems, Shaheen was there to help the company in every way possible, to ensure that there was no impact on the company image. Shaheen has been heavily involved in training new staff and has managed to find the time to take calls, assist staff and solve problems. Shaheen is the finest example of someone who can show pure dedication and resourcefulness.
This is why Shaheen is the winner of this months Employee of the Month Award.
Employee of the Month for July 2007 is awarded to: Kasia Buttery, Marketing Executive
Kasia joined UK2 in November 2006 as our Marketing Executive, and she was well and truly thrown into the deep end due to the many marketing projects and plans we had! She made a significant and noticeable contribution to UK2 straight away and has continued to do so over the course of the year.
One of Kasia’s best qualities is her “can do” approach to the job. As a result of this she has taken on and welcomed more responsibilities and challenges, and has become well versed in marketing techniques which were new to her. Kasia is very proactive and constantly looks for new ideas and opportunities to help UK2’s marketing efforts.
The August EoM will be represent soon. I’d suggest you “watch this space” for the next couple of days for the new Award Winner of August 2007.
