At Silk, we are committed to ensuring that staff have the necessary resources and training to settle into their role with ease.
That’s why each employee has an ‘on-boarding buddy’ who assist new staff during their first few weeks of employment. In addition to training, it’s a great way to settle in and have a friendly face to ask questions or further support.
REWARD & RECOGNITION
Our staff are valued members of our team and each and every contribution assists on our journey to become recognised as the ‘market leader of innovative supply chain solutions through our people and connected networks.’
Whilst we recognise our staff internally, it’s great to receive feedback from our clients on a regular basis about the service delivered by our staff! With our continued focus on customer centricity, it’s a demonstration of our commitment to our valued customers.
GOING THE MILE AWARDS
At Silk, we recognise staff who have gone the mile! Although we recognize the valuable contribution our staff make each and every day, we especially recognise 1, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25+ years of service.
