Zoe Taylor has been appointed to the newly created role of employee voice manager at Parfetts, and will be responsible for supporting team members through voice groups and the company and employee trust boards.
Taylor has already held several roles within Parfetts and she will now lead the maintenance, communication and future development of the employee ownership culture at the wholesaler.
She will work alongside the voice depot groups to arrange employee activities around social and charity events and keep abreast of employee ownership developments that may benefit the company.
