This month, KnowBe4's United Kingdom and Ireland team had their first annual award ceremony for their 2018 accomplishments!
As a fun way to recognize some of our UK and Ireland Knowsters' great accomplishments, Ruth created different certificates with unique and funny achievements! "The whole team is my inspiration, they are all winners and I wanted to let them know they are all valued," said Ruth.
Each Knowster was awarded a custom made medal and posed in front of a description of their award!
Rik received the "Employee of the Year" award. Rik is known as the kindest, most considerate and helpful member of the UK&I team - never too busy to help out!
Emma won "Tidiest Room of the Year" award and will be helping Ross, who won "Messiest Room of the Year" to keep up his resolution to be tidy!
Bas, the newcomer of the year is a 'HUGE'-ly (all 6ft 8 inches of him!) popular team member and has done a fantastic job of supporting both UK&I and global customers!
Ollie won "Smiler of the Year" because of his infectious smile that keeps the office atmosphere full of fun and laughter every day! KnowBe4 is super proud of our growing UK and Ireland team and their dedication to maintaining a fun and hard working office atmosphere!
It's no secret that the first week of a new job can be quite nerve wracking. That's why KnowBe4 likes to sprinkle in fun activities to decrease stress and show off our awesome company culture to help get our newest Knowsters accustomed to the team!
Ever wanted to be a part of a company that takes teamwork seriously? KnowBe4 takes teamwork above and beyond the workday. We have not one, but two softball teams that participate in a local softball league!
This year KnowBe4 had the pleasure of sponsoring Tampa Bay's Startup Weekend from November 16-18th! Startup Weekend is a three day long event where individuals come together to create startup businesses. In just 54 hours, teams experience the highs, lows, fun, and pressure that make up life at a startup. At this event, 74 individuals participated, 42 ideas were pitched, 10 teams were formed and 10 business concepts were presented!
To get the Winter Holiday festivities in full swing, KnowBe4 hosted our annual employee "Ugly Sweater" contest and our first ever "Best Decorated Beard" contest!
As everyone knows, the Winter holidays are the coldest in the entire year! So that's why this year for the holiday season, Knowsters were treated to a holiday carnival and custom made hoodies! Even though our Knowsters in Florida won't be feeling the chill, the Knowsters in the UK, Germany, Netherlands, South Africa and Singapore will be nice and cozy in the new hoodies!
It's no secret that KnowBe4 loves to reward our employees for a job well done! This year after having a record breaking quarter, KB4 treated everyone to two season park hopper passes to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure!
