25 Years’ Service for Two Adelphi Employees
October 9, 2018
Last week we celebrated 25 years’ service for two Adelphi employees, who started one day apart in 1993:
Dean Willis (Sales Director, Adelphi Manufacturing)
Joined 27th September 1993
Dean has become well known and trusted in the industry over the years. Although he is a Director of two of our group divisions, he also gets involved in the sale of larger packaging machinery into customers that he has an established relationship with.
Penny Lanham (Operations Director, Adelphi Healthcare Packaging)
Joined 28th September 1993
Penny is responsible for ensuring the smooth running of our operations, from receipt of a Purchase Order through to dispatch of goods.
Everyone at Adelphi has so much appreciation for their outstanding contributions over the years, we love having Dean and Penny as part of our work family, and we look forward to having them with us for a long time to come!
Staff retention is invaluable to any organization, providing a multitude of benefits that contribute to its overall success and stability. One of the primary advantages is the cultivation of a cohesive and experienced workforce. When employees stay with a company for an extended period, they accumulate valuable knowledge about the organization’s processes, culture, and clientele, which can be shared with newer staff members. This continuity fosters a strong sense of teamwork and enhances productivity, as employees work seamlessly together based on their shared understanding of the company’s goals and values.
Moreover, staff retention leads to significant cost savings, as the expenses associated with recruiting, hiring, and training new employees are substantially reduced. Retained staff members are also more likely to be highly motivated, engaged, and loyal, which positively impacts customer satisfaction and, ultimately, the company’s bottom line. Additionally, a low turnover rate boosts employee morale, creating a positive work environment where individuals feel secure in their roles and are more likely to invest in their professional development. Overall, staff retention not only ensures the stability of the workforce but also promotes a thriving organizational culture and long-term success.
