Staff with 8,336 years collective service are honoured at City Building’s inaugural long service awards
When Jim McLaughlin started work as a ‘runner’ at Glasgow City Council in 1967 The Beatles were in the album charts with Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club and Harold Wilson was Prime Minister.
That was 47 years ago. Jim from Royston in Glasgow is being honoured by City Building as the company’s longest serving employee. Jim was joined on the day by 250 of his colleagues including painter Robert Fisher from Easterhouse who has not had a single sick day throughout his 45 years’ working for the company.
This marks the first long service awards held by the leading Scottish construction company to recognise 250 of its employees with over 35 years’ service. The awards, which took place at the City Chambers in Glasgow, were an opportunity to recognise the company’s dedicated staff, some of whom have spent their entire careers contributing to its stellar reputation for quality and customer service.
