80 years joint service

Four members of the Hurst Doors team have been honoured for their hard work and dedication to the business after receiving their 20 Year Service Awards.

The awards were presented at their headquarters in Hull, in front of the whole Hurst team by Gary Hurst, managing director of the Hurst Group.

Claire Lutkin, Sarah West, Mark Taylor and Chris Edwards all received engraved commemorative crystal tankards and wine glasses, along with being awarded an extra week’s holiday entitlement as thanks for their hard work.

The four join 27 other members of the Hurst team who have been with the business for more than 20 years, equating to over 620 years’ experience between them.

Hayley Barker, marketing manager at Hurst Doors, said: “A happy team means happy customers and, as a family-owned business, we have a strong, shared ethos that places the well-being and happiness of our people at the heart of everything we do.

“We’re really proud that our staff turnover is consistently low, a key indication that so many members of the team see Hurst as a great place to work. We’re delighted to congratulate Claire, Sarah, Mark and Chris on their very impressive, 80 years of service between them.”

Sarah West, sales order processor at Hurst Doors, met her husband at Hurst, and said: “One of the best things about working here is how much it feels like one giant family. The panel processing team work closely together and we have great communication with the factory and other departments. This creates product efficiency and means we can respond quickly to any enquiries. Most importantly, the support we receive at Hurst allows us to do our jobs to the best of our abilities while picking up new skills along the way.”
