The Catering Insight salary survey results have shown that distributor staff are a loyal lot, which will probably not come as any surprise to the industry.
A total of 35.92% of the 128 dealer personnel surveyed have been at the same job for more than 10 years, with a further 22.33% maintaining their employment for between 5 and 10 years.
A significant proportion of the longest serving executives were MDs, likely because they founded the businesses or at least had a hand in the organisation from its inception.
14.56% of respondents recorded their job duration as between 3 and 5 years, with a further 19.42% answering between 1 and 5 years.
Just 7.77% of staff have been at their organisations for less than a year.
