Bay Copy honored six of its employees who have 140 combined years of service to the Rockland-based, second-generation family business.
The longevity of Bay Copy employees is all the more remarkable when seen in the context of a 2020 study from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which shows that the typical employee remains at a job for just over four years.
Ray Belanger, CEO of Bay Copy, congratulated the long-term employees for their dedication, loyalty and contributions to the company. “Ours is a family business, and the team of people who have achieved this longevity are family to us,” he said, adding, “We’ve celebrated and acknowledged many events in each other’s lives – from the happy moments of weddings, baptisms, graduations, and some of the more solemn moments as well.”
He continued, “There is a saying that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and as our company approaches the fifty-year mark, I can say without hesitation that a big part of the success of Bay Copy is the team effort that our employees give each and every day. We are extremely fortunate to have this fine and talented group of professionals as part of our extended Bay Copy family.”
