Horsforth-based IT solutions supplier Galtec has today announced turnover figures exceeding £16m for its last financial year – a £2m year-on-year increase.
As a reward to Galtec’s team for its role in businesses phenomenal growth this year, all employees who have been with the company for three years or more are set to receive a share in a six-figure bonus allocation.
The six-figure sum is being allocated to staff based on their length of service at Galtec, rather than any level of seniority, meaning that employees are being rewarded for their loyalty regardless of their position within the business.
Director Mark Adams said: “Without the hard work and commitment from the team at Galtec we wouldn’t be where we are today. It’s testament to the team’s knowledge and expertise that we have been able to achieve such strong turnover figures this year, and we want to demonstrate to everyone how much their loyalty is appreciated.
