A total of 1980 years of service to the company: Progroup honours 136 employees at 13 international plants
This year the ten, 20 and 25 year anniversaries can only be celebrated on a small scale. This is because the ceremonies as part of the traditional end-of-year celebrations at the company's sites in Germany, England, France, Italy, the Czech Republic and Poland had to be cancelled this year owing to the current coronavirus regulations.
“The end-of-year celebrations at the various sites are very important to Progroup. They are a lovely and important tradition for honouring the commitment and dedication of our employees. This year the dynamic changes owing to Covid-19 meant that we reluctantly had to cancel them. We are fully aware of the burden that the virus is placing on our employees. We would have loved to offer you an appropriate end-of-year celebration to thank you for your outstanding dedication particularly during this challenging year,” says Maximilian Heindl, Chief Development Officer and member of the Board of Progroup.
“2020 has impressed upon us that our guiding motto ‘One Group. One Goal. One Team.’ is embraced by our employees not just in positive times. In particular during challenging phases, it becomes very clear how well we all work together as a team. Long-standing colleagues play a crucial part in this. We extend our sincere thanks to them for their loyal service and their contribution to our shared success. We are very proud and grateful for their loyalty,” stresses Jürgen Heindl, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Progroup.
