In April 2018 Barker Insurance officially turned 45 years old. What an incredible journey it has been. Instead of balloons and stuffing our faces with cake, we celebrate the people behind the scene that make the magic happen. Rhett Barker has always joked that “This is a family business. It’s a bit like the mafia, once you’re in, you can’t resign or get fired.” and this certainly shows in the years that each team member has been with Barker’s.
In 2015, we started the Barker Loyalty Hall of Fame which recognised and celebrated all team members for their loyalty and years of services. Those that had been with the company for 10, 20, 30 & 40 years were welcomed into the Barker Loyalty Hall of Fame.
Over the last 3 years since the loyalty awards began at Barker insurance, we have had 9 more honouries smash the 10, 20 & 40 year milestones. 5 honouries hit their 10-year milestone, Congratulations to Louise Forsyth, Angela Somerville, Keri Faure, Deon Simon and Roscoe Millar. 3 honouries hit their 20-year milestone, Congratulations to Pilet Giyane, Stanley Mayisela and Sally Barker. And last but not least, this year we celebrate a massive 40 years of service for Lily Howard. Thank you to each any everyone of you for your service.
Working at Barker Insurance doesn’t mean you are just an employee, you are family and friends that all share the same common ingredients: Trust, Understanding, Commitment, Responsibility, Passion and with a dash of fun.
