Ekpen is a driver’s mate based at our Harlow Shredding depot. This quarter he has received very high praise for his positive attitude, thoughtfulness and dedication. He is a highly valued colleague by all at the Harlow depot. Ekpen’s day-to-day work consists of driving, assisting other drivers, and completing on-site shredding services and off-site shredding collections in London, Essex, and the surrounding areas.

Here’s why Ekpen’s peers voted for him:

“Extremely hard-working and goes out of his way to help others. He  is always friendly.”

“Ekpen is so amazingly polite, he always asks how your day is and is so positive. He calls only when he has an issue he can’t sort himself and he works very long hours. A lovely person and colleague.”

“Very hard working and he will go out of his way to help. He is always punctual and never gets angry no matter the circumstances.”
