Marks & Spencer. 1966. Top Marks for Sales Staff for Special Service. St Michael News. April, p. 3.
Exceptional sales staff are recognised and celebrated in the internal staff newspaper for Marks & Spencers in 1966. This is an important historical artefact in the documentation of women’s employment history as it is female workers, in the traditionally gendered sector of Sales and Human Rescources, who are being recognised for their achievements. Of course, the 1960’s saw a large influx of women workers in to this industry, with Marks & Spencer being one of the largest employers in the UK.
