Our Employees of the Quarter – 2021 Q2

We understand how important it is to recognise the hard work of our teams. Our peer-voted Employee of the Quarter award encourages our staff across the UK to share positive feedback about their colleagues, with each winner receiving a gift voucher and company-wide recognition of their efforts. The award also gives visibility to all areas of the business and lets the whole company know about good news, hard work, and the successes happening at each depot.

For the first time ever, we have a tie at one of our depots! As both employees have been exceptional this quarter, we have decided both will receive the award and associated prize.

Our Employees of the Quarter for Q2 of 2021 are…

  • Kevin Brown – Harlow Shredding Depot
  • Gary Raraty – Harlow Shredding Depot
  • Rob Davies – Manchester Shredding Depot
  • Lloyd Quinton – Norwich Shredding Depot
  • Dan Varga – Office and Remote

Massive congratulations to each of the five winners, and a heartfelt thank you for their dedication over the last quarter.
