Hendy has honoured long-serving colleagues with eight new admissions to the prestigious 25 Year Club which recognises the growing number of loyal employees within the company.
Chief executive Paul Hendy said there are now 122 members of the 25 Year Club and he is honoured that so many people choose to stay with Hendy.
“I’m delighted to welcome the eight new members to the 25 Year Club and this year in particular, I’d like to thank the colleagues for their dedication and loyalty to Hendy Group,” said Paul.
“We pride ourselves on having colleagues of the highest calibre who share our visions and having so many people who have worked with us for so many years demonstrates support in our approach to business,” added Paul.
Among those joining this year is Richard Reed who joined the company as general sales manager in Bournemouth.
His career has focused on new and used cars with roles including group buyer and more recently group used car sales manager.
Richard says the variety of roles and opportunities within the group have created a great career in a company he loves.
Newcomers to the 25 Year Club also include Eastleigh used car sales manager Malcolm Eales who oversees FordStore, Renault and Dacia products.
Christopher Hill who is a service driver/cleaner in Eastleigh is also a newcomer to the club together with Eastleigh used car sales controller Jason Butt, senior cashier Sandra Gilby, Tunbridge Wells technician Jeremy Lake, Poole service technician Simon Lane and parts driver Martin Ford who is based at Segensworth.
Good training and benefits, personal development prospects and the fact it is family-run are some of the factors the business believes drive its high colleague retention.
Paul added: “We are thrilled to have a happy and motivated team which enables us to offer high levels of service across our business and we are delighted to have so many long servicing colleagues alongside us every step of the way.”
