In total 25 members of staff were celebrated for their length of continuous service ranging from five to thirty years. Amongst those to be honoured were longest-standing member of staff Bathing Production Workshop Supervisor Steve Edwards for 30 years’ service and production colleagues Garry Owens and Wayne Lee with 25 year anniversaries each.
The unsung hero award went to Marjorie White, Care & Independence’s sling designer extraordinaire, whom has been instrumental in creating some of the company’s most iconic and innovative designs such as the recent GLOVE™ Diamond Deluxe sling family. This was also especially poignant as Marjorie is due to retire from the business later in the year.
The company event also saw the second presentation of the Ray Collins Award for Customer Excellence, created in memory of a colleague lost to early covid. The 2021 winner was Sling Production Assistant Lynda Stevens who was highly praised for her outstanding dedication to improving the lives of hundreds of individuals throughout the past year.
Managing Director Ian Jones declared the event a “great success” and impressed upon attendees the importance of community and continued support and caring towards one another for the greater good. He said he was humbled by the astonishing amount of experience and knowledge present in the room and praised the way in which every member of staff had gone the extra mile over the past year. These were, he said, “demonstrative and worthy values that resonate at the heart of the company itself and all staff should be proud of their individual achievements and contributions”.
Care & Independence are pleased to announce a new member of the joint assessment-led sales team – Kathryn Emasealu.
