Awards & Commendations

Special Recognition Award - Matthew Parry

We are always pleased to hear about one of our colleagues going over and above to ensure a brilliant delivery of service. We take a look over the kind words and recommendations left by our clients each month in order to award a number of these colleagues with our Special Recognition Award.

In the month of July, we had no shortage of recommendations, as with every month, and have chosen Matthew Parry for his forward thinking, which helped minimise absences over a busy period. Matthew analysed data and worked with the ops centre (on his off days) to ensure anyone trying to phone in sick was handled in the correct, professional manner and in line with the absence procedure. Thank you Matthew!

Matthew went above and beyond his role and we’re thankful for his continuous support at Kingdom HQ.

Kingdom is pleased to announce that we have had all our ISO audits carried out for 2018 and have successfully met all the requirements of those audits without conceding any non-conformities.
