Staff at Glyn Hopkin accumulate 600 years of service

Time 9:10 am, July 25, 2016

GLYN Hopkin, one of the largest automotive dealer groups in the South East, is celebrating a significant employee milestone, having accumulated an incredible combined 600 years of service.

The group’s headcount now exceeds 730 across more than 40 franchised dealerships, with 30 employees – from managers to senior directors – working for the business for more than 20 years.

Several of the veteran staff have been with Glyn Hopkin since the very beginning when then business was founded in 1993, and have since worked their way through the ranks to hold senior positions.

An additional 15 per cent of Glyn Hopkin employees have remained with the company for more than a decade – a remarkable feat within the automotive retail industry, which is noted for above-average rates of staff turnover.

In appreciation of the loyalty and exceptional individual performances of its veteran staff, Glyn Hopkin rewards those reaching long-service milestones with bonuses and a limited edition engraved Mont Blanc pen.

Fraser Cohen, MD of Glyn Hopkin, said: ‘We invest in a range of training and development programmes and incentives, as we always strive to promote from within the business.

‘It’s a great accomplishment to foster this kind of staff loyalty and it’s very rewarding to see so many employees grow with us and rise to senior positions, driving us on to new successes.’
