We love it when Airlines talk passionately about their staff
We proudly present this week’s feature 🙂 Mr Francis Vidot, 35 years with Air Seychelles.
Francis is a jovial and friendly gentleman who, at 53 years old has been part of the Air Seychelles family for over three decades. His journey with the National Airline began in June 1988 when he joined the company after having worked with his brother in construction for a while.
His career started as a porter, and he quickly moved up to become a cargo agent. Francis then decided to join the courier service for some years but eventually found himself back at the cargo department where he has remained until today, now in his current post as Warehouse Supervisor.
Leading a team of six, he declares that he thoroughly loves his work, the environment and the camaraderie of his colleagues. He especially enjoys the training he gets to attend, and shares that although they are recurrent, there is always something new to learn.
Married with 3 children, Francis naturally takes on the role of mentor among new staff members and is always eager to help them find their feet so that the work gets done as well as is expected and so the company can do well. When asked for his advice to new joiners and fellow colleagues, he has this to say ‘Oftentimes the youth are in too much of a hurry to climb the ladder. Take time to learn the job, starting from the bottom, so that when you reach the top, you know exactly what you are doing. Listen to the older staff, they have the experience to help you.”
We wish you many more years with Air Seychelles, Francis. Thank you for 35 years of service.
