Long Service Awards and Certificates
One initiative that we are borrowing from our European colleagues in BIBM is to recognise long service in the precast industry. Framed long-service award certificates for continuous service over 10, 20, 25 and 30 years are available anytime that a member nominates employees who have reached such milestones, and can be backdated to the start of the year.
