We are delighted to share with you the unique news that Bob Shayler, Import Services Limited’s, Training and Development Manager, recently completed 30 Years of continuous service with the Company.

Bob started with Import Services on the 1st April 1989 and unbelievably has never ever taken a day off sick in all of his 30 years’ service, an extraordinary and impressive achievement.

In addition to Bob’s Training and Development role as part of the Operations support and development team, he looks after all the critical to life areas of facility management, such as fire protection and health and safety.

Bob has always performed every part of his role in a professional and exemplary way. We often receive very positive comments about him, his knowledge and his care and attention to detail from Insurers who attend to inspect our sites as part of their risk management protocols.

Bob has always been supportive and kind to colleagues, over his many years he has also trained and developed thousands of our people including agency staff, but the key to his long success is his approach in treating everyone the same no matter where you come from. Many of our successful Managers have been developed and nurtured by Bob and he is held in high regard by all who spend time with him.

Roger Loveless, Operations Director, Import Services comments, “I first met Bob 29 years ago, he had already completed one career at that time with 22 years’ service in the Army and has now passed the 30-year service mark in his second career. A quite remarkable achievement. I would like to personally thank Bob for his dedication, loyalty and commitment to the Company and for his many achievements over the years.”

A stand out example was the creation of the Centre of Excellence (it’s now called the OSDG) 12 years ago to lead training and development, which Bob started with Roger to provide every employee with opportunity through training and development to create a better business. It has been a huge success evidenced by our Investor in People accreditation held for the past 12 years and continues to underpin everything we do to support our people.

Roger continues, “30 years’ loyal service for a kind, humble man. It’s been a real pleasure working with you Bob and we are a far better safer Company for your presence and dedicated effort over such a long time.”

Bob comments, “I have enjoyed every minute of each day at Import Services working with great people who work extremely hard to deliver the World class service our Clients deserve.”
