The Kanoo Group recognises top performing employees

High performing employees from across The Kanoo Group were recently recognised for their commitment and loyalty at the Kanoo Awards Ceremony. Held at the Royal Ascot Hotel on 27 April 2017, this celebration of excellence recognised some of the more remarkable performances from 2016 which proved to be a successful year for |The Kanoo Group, despite some very challenging trading conditions.

During his valedictory speech, Mr Mishal Kanoo, Chairman of The Kanoo Group, expressed his sincere thanks to employees for their incredible dedication and commitment to the company. Mr Mishal Kanoo shared one of his favourite quotes, advising colleagues that "even if you don't like a job, do the work so well that people will cry when you leave." "Live it, it works" he added, before presenting the recipients with their certificates of appreciation for meritorious service to The Kanoo Group.

Senior members of The Kanoo Group joined the ceremony in order to add their own thanks and congratulations to the award recipients. These included Ms Maha Kanoo, Director - HR, Administration and Marketing, Mr Fahad Kanoo, Executive Director and both Mr Bob Curtis and Mr P.S. Ganapathi, the CEO and CFO respectively.

Ms Maha Kanoo remarked that "It is so important to recognise and celebrate the achievements of our amazing employees. We want them all to know how much we value and appreciate their sterling efforts and we hope they feel inspired to continue their commendable work."

The awards ceremony and buffet lunch that followed was also an opportunity for employees to celebrate with co-workers and business leaders and to underline the meaning of some of The Kanoo Group values: innovative, agile, collaborative, accountable, customer focused, ethical, competent & intelligent.

Mr Matt Cooper-Bradfield, Head of HR, encouraged employees to take their certificate to work and display them proudly as a badge of honour both to encourage colleagues and to demonstrate how The Kanoo Group recognises the unique contributions of each member of our workforce. He also reminded everyone that although we could only recognise a few colleagues at this awards ceremony, there were a great many other employees of The Kanoo Group that were giving their best and performing well and that he hoped to recognise them all in time.
