Early November, Osso joined its Ontario counterparts and took part in the annual Years of Service awards luncheon, recognizing the achievements of employees celebrating their 5, 10, 15, and 20+ years with Sonepar. Of the 385 years being recognized, Osso employees represented a total of 75 years.
Osso is lucky to have an experienced work force. We have over 450 years of service spread out across all our branches (and this doesn’t include the many years worked before joining the company!)
With long-term employees, like Tom Holman who was recognized for 15 years of service, comes a strong knowledge base. This means customers can benefit from employees who know trade names, understand how the product works and other valuable knowledge to use in their daily operations. Long-term employees also pass down their skills they’ve gained over the years to benefit new employees who may still not understand the ways of our business. Our newer work force is very lucky to benefit from this tutelage!
Being recognized this year are Gene Bellefontaine (Belleville) Andy Bonner (Kingston), Doug Campbell (Ajax), Dean Clark (Kingston), Tom Holman (Oshawa), Dennis Krock (Belleville), Vandana Lahar (Head Office), Greg Lockhart (Head Office), Fabio Mazzotta (Oshawa) Mark O’Reilly (Lindsay) and Don Sullivan (Lindsay).
Congratulations to all the 2011 Years of Service Awards Recipients!
