Sellick Partnership gives staff day off for Employee Appreciation Day

Sellick PartnershipProfessional services recruitment firm Sellick Partnership has given its more than 100 employees a day off today (Friday 3 March) to mark Employee Appreciation Day.

The event, observed on the first Friday in March, was created by Dr Bob Nelson of Recognition Professionals International in 1995, to give thanks and recognition to employees.

In previous years, Sellick Partnership allowed staff to finish early on Employee Appreciation Day and have lunch on the business, but this year the business decided to go a step further to acknowledge its workforce’s continued efforts and dedication.

Any worker who was already scheduled for annual leave on 3 March was able to cancel their holiday request, while part-time staff who do not work on Fridays were given permission to take the time back on another day in March.

According to the employer, which has seven offices across the country, this is an opportunity to make sure that each and every employee feels cared for and appreciated.

Jo Sellick, managing director of Sellick Partnership, said: “We are dedicated to creating an environment that enables each individual to thrive. The secret to the success of Sellick Partnership is the people that we employ. We want all staff to come into the office in the morning and enjoy their time at work. That’s what it’s all about.

“We try to create a platform that will make a difference to the lives of our people and in turn we hope this will help many more, by providing a tailored and compassionate approach to recruitment. The effort and dedication from all the staff at Sellick Partnership doesn’t go unrecognised. This is just another way we can say we are truly thankful.”
