60 years, or six decades – that’s the combined length of service given by two long-serving members of staff from WearCheck Pinetown. The important career milestones were celebrated recently by diagnostician Rowan Maartens (30 years) and accounts clerk Preleen “Pearl” Joseph (30 years).
Rowan joined WearCheck 30 years ago as a diagnostician, and since then has been hard at work as a key member of the diagnostics team. Says Rowan, ‘It’s been an interesting journey on a long road, very technical, and I have learnt so much along the way, both from colleagues and customers. I have really enjoyed it.’
Pearl spent her first 14 years with WearCheck as a lab assistant. Thereafter, she moved across to customer support and then accounts (first debtors, now creditors). ‘There is always something new every day, which keeps the job interesting, challenging and enjoyable,’ she says.
Managing director Neil Robinson congratulated Rowan and Pearl on reaching these incredible milestones. ‘We truly value your years of loyalty to the WearCheck family – not only do your years of experience benefit the company and your colleagues, but your familiarity with our customers and their needs translates into better customer service.’
