Apollo is celebrating over 1000 years of employee service!
Published: 10 January 2018
Over 30% of our people have been with us for more than 10 years. Many have been with us for over 20 years. In fact, there is over 1000 years of combined service at Apollo. This gives an average length of service of 8 years – despite a massive boost in the number of new employees in recent years.
Our people are our strongest asset; they are dedicated, passionate and go the extra mile for our customers. We recognise that many of our people join and stay with us, contributing greatly to our success. Our workforce has doubled from 80 to 160 in the last five years, which has enabled us to achieve rapid business growth. It is only with the determination and commitment of our people that we can continue to grow and add value to our customers, key to our brand promise, ‘More than adhesives’.
As the company has grown, Apollo has remained a business that people enjoy working for, and one that provides us all with a dynamic working environment, giving us the opportunities to develop and grow professionally.
We trust and support our people to take responsibility early in their career. Our people are experts in their area; they use this expertise to challenge themselves everyday to improve our business, whilst still maintaining and enjoying the family feel that Apollo offers.
Ian Cornelius, Managing Director, states: “Our strong reputation results from a wealth of experience that is built over many years in the industry, and above all, the loyalty, hard work and commitment of our people- all of which is a big part of why this place is so special. We are very fortunate to have so many dedicated members of staff who have worked with the company for substantial periods of time. Their contribution is invaluable and truly appreciated. I would like to thank all of our long serving members for their fantastic support over the years; Apollo’s continuing success is down to you.”
