The team at local business, Hutchings in Pontypridd, is celebrating after six of its female members clocked up an impressive one hundred years of service between them.
Warranty Administrator, Karen Jones has reached an impressive landmark of 25 years’ service at Hutchings, acquiring a wealth of motoring knowledge over this time. Meanwhile, Accounts Assistant, Liza Elston has celebrated reaching 21 years at the dealership. Hutchings is proud to also acknowledge Administrator, Leanne Yoxen, Group Aftersales Manager, Laura Price, Bookings Assistant, Helen Palmer, and Service Adviser, Rebecca Price, who have all reached an impressive 19, 15, 14, and 6 years’ of service respectively.
With the average person changing jobs 10 to 15 times throughout their career, to have six members of staff all celebrating an extended period of time at the dealership exemplifies an impressive and progressive working environment. With each of the ladies hitting milestones this only further counters the stereotype of the automotive trade being a male-dominated industry.
Steve Hutchings, Managing Director at Hutchings, said: “We are all very proud of each individual for their continued hard work and support over the years. We value our team very highly, and it is important to recognise their excellence and commitment to our industry, company and customers.
“What makes each of these achievements all the more impressive is that the employees are female. Karen, Liza, Leanne, Laura, Helen and Rebecca are all fantastic examples that the automotive industry can hold a long and fruitful career for anybody. I look forward to celebrating many more team member’s achievements in the years to come.”
