Northern Ireland’s largest independently owned motor retailer, Donnelly Group, has recognised over 50 per cent of its 500 strong workforce for their long service within the company.  

Those who have worked at the business for five years or more will be entitled to additional annual leave, with long-serving employees gaining up to five days off to spend how they wish. 

Dave Sheeran, Managing Director at Donnelly Group, said that the value of a loyal workforce cannot be underestimated. He commented: 

“As a family run business, employee wellbeing is a top priority at Donnelly Group, and we recognise that our staff are integral to the future growth of the business.  

“We wanted to find a way to acknowledge the ongoing dedication of our team, many of whom have made tangible contributions to the success of the business throughout their careers. 

“Through the use of a company-wide survey, it was evident that most popular form of appreciation was additional annual leave.  

“Having such high numbers of long serving staff across Northern Ireland acts as testament to Donnelly Group’s ongoing commitment to helping all our employees develop to be the best that they can be.  

“We are pleased to have been able to implement the rollout of additional holiday entitlement for 251 long serving staff across our nine stores and are proud to recognise and reward the positive impact our team has had.” 

In addition to extra annual leave for long service, Donnelly Group offers its employees competitive salaries, an industry-leading work-life balance, and continuous training opportunities.
