Ground Control Field Team Roadshow 2016
Over the past month, we have been travelling the country to meet with our teams across Maintenance, Construction, Arb Rail, Arb Utilities and Pest Control, as part of our annual Field Team Roadshow 2016.
With 9 events in total, we reached over 500 teams in Mansfield, Crewe, Bury St Edmunds, Croydon, Taunton, Gloucester, Northampton, Glasgow and Leeds. Phew! What a great tour it was, bringing together field teams while delivering the spirit of our vision, and giving access to a range of suppliers and products.
The events kicked off with divisional meetings, before bringing teams together for an overall business update; covering health & safety, successes of the past year, ongoing priorities, as well as our vision and values. Ground Control aims to deliver exceptional service, excellent value for money, honour commitments, act with integrity, and value its people – a recurring message throughout. Staff engagement is core to the business, and the roadshows celebrate the hard work and dedication that goes in to helping us grow, and also our ability to help our teams grow sustainably.
We were joined by a number of our suppliers who were showcasing products at each event. These include Green Tech, Rigby Taylor, Scotbark, Ford, Forst, Redwood Global, AUS, Timberwolf and Spinaclean.
As part of the FT Roadshow this year, we delivered WasteSmart training to our teams following our newly approved status as WasteSmart training providers. Our National Training Manager, Neil Huck, rolled the training out to our managers at the beginning to the year, and is set to train over 500 individuals.
