Long service award for Steve

A Tyldesley man enjoyed a trip to London in recognition of his 30 years service with a leading provider of on-site service solutions.

Steve Mackay joined more than 140 colleagues from Sodexo across the UK and Ireland, all of whom were recipients of the 20, 30 or 40 year long service award for an afternoon tea cruise on-board Bateaux London’s Symphony, the city’s largest restaurant cruise vessel.

Then all recipients took a trip on the London Eye before having a celebratory dinner at Madame Tussauds, where they were presented with their chosen gift in recognition of their service.

Sodexo chief executive Aidan Connolly said: “Our business relies on thousands of talented individuals who provide our customers and clients with exceptional service.

“This annual event is a great opportunity to show our appreciation for people like Steve, and to show just how much we value and appreciate all the hard work, dedication, and loyalty he has shown over the years”.

In the UK and Ireland, Sodexo employs 43,000 employees, and provides catering and a range of facilities management services to clients at more than 2,300 locations in the business and industry, education, healthcare, leisure and defence sectors.
