For well over 100 years, by one name or another, LIME has been serving Saint Lucia and the Caribbean. The foundation of that service has been the hard work put in by company’s employees, from service support and delivery to retail, from customer service to finance.
Over two dozen of the company’s long-tenured colleagues were rewarded for their commitment and dedication, in a ceremony at Tapas on the Bay in Rodney Bay.
The long-serving team of 25 includes 17 men and 8 women from the north and south of the island, and from all departments of LIME, local and regional. The recipients were treated to lunch and each was presented with commemorative gifts based on the duration of their time at LIME.
Mellissa Ambrose, Jeanette Nelson, Brian Goodman, Gina Daniel, Nurcia Paul, Alice Francis, Andrea Auguste, Rossini George and Mary Benjamin-Delice all celebrated a decade with the company. Marking their 15-year anniversary were Aberra Larcher, Cindy Ann Gilbert, Pamphille Wally, McAllan Louis, Chester Evans and Paul Simeina. Christopher Paul, Edison Edward, Hervon Brown, Amil Alexander, Terry Euphretus Goodman, Garfield Hinkson and Canice Pierre were rewarded for staying with LIME since 1992.
The star of the show, though, was Keith Aimable. Keith, who is currently Billing Administrator at LIME, has been with the company for a remarkable 25 years! Leading the pack for this group of LIME veterans, he joined the firm as a teenager in 1987.
“Colleague engagement plays a vital role in ensuring we are able to deliver to our customers and to our shareholders,” explains Danette Lambert, Human Resource Partner for LIME Saint Lucia. “LIME has a proud record of skills development; all of our recipients have unique talents that contribute to our success. Some of the individuals we are celebrating have grown with us as a company and have gone through the ranks, from Cable & Wireless, BoatPhone, Caribbean Cellular or bmobile to LIME. This is indicative of the great opportunities that are available in this organisation.”
LIME conducts regular engagement colleagues with its staff to ensure that motivation levels and service excellence are maintained at consistently high levels. Aside from the annual recognition ceremony, the company also does targeted and structured internal polling and objective-setting, among other strategic interventions geared towards getting the best out of employees.
