30 Oct GTP Staff Honoured for 1000 years of Service
Five veteran employees who have collectively notched up 200 years of service to the GTP brand, were each recognised for their lifetime of service to TexStyles Ghana Limited as part of an annual ‘Long Service Award’ celebration in Tema. In total, the company honoured 49 employees who had each served between 10-40 years with the firm. Awardees received a certificate of recognition, special GTP prints, and an undisclosed cash sum, with special commendations going to the five main veterans who had each served the company for 40 years of more.
Presenting the awards, managing director Kofi Boateng, himself an awardee of 35 years, thanked all the recipients for their enormous contribution in making GTP and Woodin the successful brands we know today. With the 49 staff in question contributing in excess of 1,000 years of service collectively, he remarked, “Although our gesture is quite modest compared to the number of years you have individually and collectively invested in the business; this is our way of saying, thank you very much for your loyalty and dedication.”
Asked why they’ve stayed so long with the company, each of the veterans echoed the same phrase, “GTP has become like family” over the years. So there you have it.
