Anderson ladies given celebratory makeover day
As part of its 25th anniversary celebrations, Anderson Travel has treated its female employees to a makeover day at a top venue in Covent Garden. The firm supports and encourages female professionals in a sector which is typically male dominated and to mark the increasing role women are playing in the industry, the four women were offered a day out of their choice. They opted for a day of pampering, having their hair and makeup done followed by a photo shoot.
Director of Anderson Travel Mark Anderson said: ‘We have an extremely diverse workforce, representing the society that we live and work in. In an industry with few women and some old habits, Anderson Travel has always tried to attract female talent as it’s important to have a balance in personnel.’
‘We are passionate about the coach industry – it’s an attractive career choice for women and it’s important that they are encouraged to participate in a traditionally male orientated trade. A ‘Women in Rail’ scheme was recently launched in the rail industry and a similar group would be of benefit to the coach sector.’
