Scunthorpe firm Systemise Fulfilment launches profit sharing scheme for employees

Scunthorpe-based eCommerce fulfilment business Systemise Fulfilment has revamped its employee engagement and rewards offering to reflect the speed of growth. This includes establishing a profit-sharing scheme for employees, starting at 10% and increasing each year. 

Founded in 2015 by co-directors Kevin Blackburn and Kylie Thomas, Systemise Fulfilment has grown into a 10,000SqFt warehouse in Scunthorpe, along with opening several UK and international licensed warehouses. To date, the prep and order fulfilment business has shipped over 4 million units for partners and customers worldwide, expanding its operations in the UK, Europe, and the USA.

Now a business with global operations and currently 32 team members based at the Scunthorpe Headquarters, the firm is focused on ensuring that fundamental HR practices genuinely represent the company’s mission and values. The launch of these new employee incentives coincides with the appointment of Nikki Thomas – Systemise Fulfilment’s new Global Head of HR, who joined the business in September.

Director, Kevin Blackburn, commented: “At Systemise Fulfilment, our dedicated and hard-working team is at the heart of our success. When Kylie and I set up the business, we aimed to build an organisation that offers life-changing opportunities for our employees and partners.

“We are committed to providing fulfilling careers, nurturing our talented team through exciting professional and personal development routes and rewarding them for their passion and dedication to our mission.

“We’ve always been committed to ensuring employees feel valued and fulfilled in their careers. As the business has grown, we’ve continued to adapt and improve our HR practices that are representative of our ever-evolving business – to make sure employees see how valued they are and feel fulfilled and engaged in their careers. We are big believers in re-investing profits to improve our infrastructure, systems and processes, which will benefit the business, our partners and our employees. That’s why we are reshaping our HR practices and committing to offering more attractive benefits and opportunities to employees, so our team directly benefits from the success they help us to achieve”. 

Nikki Thomas, Head of Global HR at Systemise Fulfilment, shared: “We’ve just launched our Systemise Blueprint for employees. This reward and recognition program is aligned with the business’s ambitious mission to reach some huge goals by 2030. 

“This, along with other changes in the newly founded HR department, is set to provide employees with additional benefits and opportunities, from monetary rewards to shopping discounts. We’ve also been working on new employee onboarding and development programs to bolster our commitment to focus on promoting employees internally and investing in learning and development”.
