Kingdom launches new Colleague Zone

Kingdom is very pleased to have launched a new Colleague Zone today which all colleagues at Kingdom will have access to. The new Colleague Zone replaces our old “Our People” section and has been designed to be in line with Kingdom’s new website, which was launched at the end of last year.

The new Colleague Zone brings together everything that our colleagues will need in one easy to access place. The improved navigation makes everything much simpler to find, and therefore makes it much easier for our colleagues to access and utilise what they need compared to what was available to them before.

Kingdom is a people business, so likes to keep colleagues happy and enthused. We don’t believe that colleague welfare ends with paying wages, which is why our “welfare rainbow” provides many colleague incentives.
