Corporate member celebrates long-serving employees


Corporate member Designer Contracts has acknowledged 70 long-serving members of staff with special recognition awards.

Three of the longest-serving – those celebrating 20 years with the business, joined members of management at the company’s AGM for a celebratory meal at the Casa Hotel in Chesterfield, where Designer Contracts is headquartered.

Md Peter Kelsey presented Louise Walters, Louise Barrett and Angie Cresswell with engraved iPad Pros as a token of gratitude for their dedication and loyalty over the past two decades.

Peter said: “As a business we are incredibly lucky to have such a loyal workforce. As a thank you, each year we are acknowledging every member of the team who celebrates in excess of five, 10, 15 and 20 years.

“We really do believe that we have so many long serving employees because of the friendly and caring environment that we are so lucky to have across the business. In addition, we make sure our team is trained and supported throughout their career to ensure they’re achieving the goals that they want to reach.”
