Published: 07 December, 2009
ESSEX: Ridgeons recognised the 'experience and knowledge' of its long serving staff at a ceremony last month.
Group chair Anne Ridgeon told the team: "With your years of experience and knowledge, and your understanding of what makes this company different, you and your fellow long-serving colleagues are our company experts, and the foundation of our success with customers.
Dedicated staff members, based at the branch of Ridgeons on Ashdon Road Commercial Centre, received framed certificates and lapel pins. Mark Fitzhenry, Paul Hayden, Brett Marks and Caroline Thompson have served 20 years at Ridgeons and their contribution was recognised at a reception in Cambridge.
Five staff were congratulated for their 15 years' service and three for 10 years' service.
"Good relationships with communities we serve are not just part of the job-they are fundamental to our existence and part of our DNA, and I'm grateful to so many of you who contribute to this ethos through fundraising or giving of your time in other ways," she said.
