Here at Pennine, 2023 has been the year of celebrating milestones and Employee Ownership and as we gear up for our highly anticipated 60th Party on Thursday and our EO Day Celebrations on Friday, we want to take a moment to reflect on our journey since our humble beginnings in 1963. We have remained steadfast in championing UK Manufacturing and supporting the NHS as a key supplier, all from our headquarters nestled in the heart of Derby. This week is truly special as we come together to celebrate our accomplishments and reinforce the spirit of employee ownership that drives us forward.
The 60th Party:
Thursday promises to be a day filled with jubilation and reminiscence as we mark a significant milestone in our history. From our inception to this moment, we have encountered challenges, triumphs, and everything in between. Our 60th Party is a testament to the resilience and dedication of our team. It will be a time to revel in our achievements, share stories, and strengthen the bonds that unite us as a business. Together, we have created a legacy worth celebrating.
EO Day Celebrations:
Following the festivities of our 60th Party, Friday brings yet another cause for celebration—EO Day. As an Employee Ownership Trust (EOT), Pennine recognizes the importance of empowering our colleagues and reminding them that they are an integral part of our success. EO Day serves as a reminder that Pennine is not just a company, but a collective effort of all those who contribute to its growth. It’s a day to acknowledge the power of collaboration, innovation, and shared ownership.
In the spirit of honouring EO Day and fostering a strong work-life balance, we have made the decision to close our doors on Friday, June 23rd. This closure allows our colleagues to spend quality time with their loved ones and recharge their batteries, knowing that their commitment to Pennine is valued and respected. We believe that investing in the well-being of our team ultimately benefits the company as a whole, as well as our much-valued customers. We are encouraging all colleagues to take this day to relax, rejuvenate, and cherish the moments that matter most.
This week at Pennine HQ is filled with excitement, reflection, and camaraderie. Our 60th Party and EO Day Celebrations serve as reminders of our achievements and the power of employee ownership. As we revel in the memories of our past, we look forward to a future filled with growth and shared success. Pennine’s journey is far from over, and we are excited to embark on the next chapter together. We look forward to making this week a testament to our unity, resilience, and unwavering commitment to excellence.
