Training has been a strategic focus area for Green-tech throughout 2016 and the spotlight remains in place as we start 2017.
Following our recent move to a larger purpose-built Business Park, we have really ramped up our activity and staff numbers. A high number of new and existing staff have undergone a range of training from distance-based learning, college courses, in-house training and one-to-one mentoring.
The training has been specific and targeted to an individual’s need; it has ranged from product and sales technique training to leadership and management training to degree level professional qualifications.
One example is Natasha Herron, who works in our Purchasing department. With limited experience but bags of enthusiasm and potential Tasha was offered the opportunity to study for a professional qualification and she recently completed her Institute of Supply Chain Management Level 3 in Supply chain Management; Supply Chain, Inventory and Purchasing. When the position of Green-tech’s Buyer came up last year Tasha was promoted into this role.
The training calendar for 2017 is already filling up quickly as our 63 members of staff at every level are keen to grab the opportunities presented to them to further their skills, qualifications and personal prospects.
Managing Director Rachel Kay said, “We have an amazing bunch of people working for Green-tech and they are our biggest asset. We know that to give our customers the quality of advice and service that they require our people need to be at the top of their game. We also understand that our people need to have a fulfilling career and have the opportunity and ability to develop to the best of their potential. Every person has an individual training plan that is based on their skills, role, personal ambitions and the company’s requirements.”
Chairman Richard Kay continued “It’s important to us that we train and retain the best. We provide an environment where individuals are encouraged to push themselves; to expect more and to give more. We’ve always been happy to invest in training and development but as our business grows this is an area the management team has put under the microscope and will be a major focus point in 2017.”
