FRODSHAM and Helsby bed and mattress retailer Land of Beds has recognised employees who have contributed to another year of record-breaking sales.
Land of Beds’ Family Director Team hosted the celebrations at the Bears Paw, where staff were treated to a fun-packed evening in the Barn.
“The event was about celebrating how well we have done collectively as a team, as well as highlighting our individual star performers,” said Managing Director Mike Murray.
“In 2016, we set a stretching sales target and I was very proud to announce that we absolutely smashed that!
‘It’s incredible as a business to see how far we have come and, as directors, we wanted to say a huge thank you to all of our staff.”
The night’s top award – ‘Employee of the Year’ – was voted for by every employee within the business, and it went to Sales Team member Marcus Lightfoot, who was praised for always being happy to help and coming to work with a smile. “Your positive attitude is infectious and you have become a great role model for your colleagues,” added Mike.
‘Outstanding Contribution’ winner Cayley Jardine was applauded for ‘stepping up to the plate when needed’ and excelling in the multiple roles she has worked in across all departments.
The ‘Professional Development’ Award was presented to Logistics Team member David Lofthouse, who has volunteered to take part in every community event over the past 12 months, and who was cited as a great example of how ‘hard work, dedication and a helpful attitude can make a massive difference’.
Finally, Customer Services member Hollie Smith was crowned ‘Rising Star’, and was credited for her professionalism and organisational skills in all aspects of the role.
“I want to say a personal thank you to everyone who has chosen to shop locally in Frodsham and Helsby, and to support our family business,” said Mike.
“By way of thanks – and to celebrate our national ‘Retail Family Business of the Year’ Award win – we are offering up to 40 percent savings on beds and mattresses made by top British manufacturers such as Hypnos, Sealy and Silentnight throughout the summer.”
