WightFibre has launched a recognition of service programme to thank employees that have been with the company for five years or more.

WightFibre says its aim for this new initiative is to expand the company’s existing rewards programme to show appreciation to all of its employees who have demonstrated long-term commitment to their role within the company.

It follows the company’s recent accreditation award from The Institute of Customer Service.

John Irvine, CEO at WightFibre, commented:

“At WightFibre, we value loyalty, both from our customers and all our employees. This is a great way to say thank you to all those that work for us that are so dedicated to serving our customers and the company, and this latest initiative works to congratulate and reward this long-term commitment and dedication.”

The first of what will be regular celebrations rewarded 14 WightFibre employees across five, 10 and 15 years of service milestones, with each receiving individual glass trophies presented by John Irvine, together with vouchers up to the value of £500 and up to an additional three days annual leave. Those recently gathered to receive their long-service awards having over 160 years of accumulated service to the company between them.
