Employee of the Month, March 2018




Employee of the Month, March 2018

Congratulations to The Contact Company‘s Employee of the Month for the month of March, Karen Russell.

Karen is The Contact Company’s Training and Development Manager and, throughout the past two months, has worked exceptionally hard to support the Audit, Risk and Compliance department in achieving ISO 9001, as well as a number of other objectives and accreditations. The Contact Company’s Head of Audit, Risk and Compliance, Amir Mirza, explains:

“Karen has put so much work in to supporting and coordinating her team to help the business deliver a number of key objectives. These objectives include working with the ARC team to design training packages for ISO 9001, Data Protection and Risk Management – all of which will help to protect our business by ensuring everyone has the tools and knowledge needed to make this a collective responsibility.”

Audit and Governance Manager, Dave Taylor, added: “As well as being as fantastic as she has over the years- with her dedication and late nights, ensuring the needs of all employees have been met as well as achieving company targets- Karen this month has been such a help to the ARC team. What stands out most is not only her dedication to her work, but the passion and enthusiasm that she instills in others. You can see this influence shine through to all levels of her team.”

In fact, Karen’s positive attitude and influence is so widespread, that the impartial members of the Employee of the Month selection team, from various departments around the business, felt compelled to voice their own appreciation and thanks:

“You were nominated for your work in helping the business to secure the ISO accreditation. It was clear from the multiple nominations that you deserved to be recognised for that work, but when discussing your nominations, the esteem in which we all hold you became clear. We felt that to present you with this award based solely on your ISO work, making no mention of your daily passion, would be to do you a disservice. You are easily one of the most focused employees the business has- and you could win this award multiple times over!”

Here’s some more of the fantastic things Karen’s colleagues had to say:

“Karen Russell is a great example of someone who always goes above and beyond, and inspires others to as well.”

“You are 100% committed to The Contact Company and to developing our people, and regularly go above and beyond for the greater good of the business.”

“Karen always comes into work filled with positivity and this reflects onto anyone she works with.”

“I cannot praise Karen enough for the help and support she has given to ARC this month in designing and delivering essential training across our business.”

“Thank you for the multitude of occasions where you have gone above and beyond your role to support me. You do this not just for me, but for anyone who needs support. I firmly believe that the business achieves its key objectives, and succeeds, because of your work.”

“Karen is a real asset to The Contact Company and someone our business can look to in living and breathing our values every single day.”


Thank you, Karen!
