Here at Protective Packaging Ltd we feel it’s very important to maintain a “happy ship” and actively strive to encourage social outings for all colleagues. Generally speaking once an employee reaches the end of their probationary period, they are usually settled into our “little family” and tend to stay for many years.
In addition to social events open to all colleagues, there is a special place for departmental outings so those working together on a daily basis can let their hair down and get to know each other better away from the office constraints. Sadly last week the accounts and IT departments joined forces and went out for a meal to say “So Long, Farewell” to Andy, who after 9 years is moving on to new pastures taking on a more demanding position at the end of July.
At this point it seems appropriate to say “hello and welcome” to Peter, who recently joined the company to head the IT department.
We were also joined by former colleague Eileen who managed to find a free evening to share with us before setting off on her next cruise or holiday. We are not quite sure where she found the time to come to work before she retired. A grand time was had by all, even though we are sad to see Andy go.
