Lookers plc kicked off the New Year by celebrating and thanking some of our long serving staff at our inaugural long service awards.
Among the staff recognised were fourteen of our loyal staff members who have been with Lookers for forty years, ten employees who have been with us for forty-five years and three have reached the fifty year mark.
Lookers chief executive Andy Bruce said: “Our people agenda is the top priority at Lookers and it is widely recognised that businesses who have employees with long service deliver better customer service.
“We are benefiting from long standing customer relationships and a wealth of experience, so we want to formally recognise this loyalty with a range of measures designed to say a big thank you to our loyal and dedicated people.”
The initiative comes as part of a programme, aimed at increasing engagement in our company and among out staff members.
By December 2015 a total of 2,322 additional days were awarded and almost £70,000 worth of vouchers shared among staff members, the total number certificates distributed across the workforce totalled 2,591 and that’s in addition to 70 of our staff members, who had been faithful employees for over 30 years, receiving a whole week’s worth of paid annual leave.
