Here at Coalters we strive to recognise our employees in every aspect of their work. On the 8th December we took a day away from the office to celebrate the year’s successes and lay down the foundations for 2017 – but we will keep that a secret for now. All we will say is, watch this space!
What did the staff think?
‘The offsite day was really informative and it’s really exciting to see the changes that are coming, as they provide so many new opportunities.’ – Emma Douglas
‘Enjoyable, Exciting and Encouraging‘ – Tom Helsby
‘The day was a great success, we were made to feel really involved in the changes which are being developed and given the chance to express our open honest feedback and ideas.‘ – Georgina Spence
Throughout this year we have been running our very first unique Developing Managers Scheme (DMS) where we have been coaching those who want to push their limits and progress as managers within the company. The course brought teams together to create and trial innovative ideas within the branch, and also focused on individual projects where they could really showcase their new found management skills.
Our celebrating success day was their chance to shine! We had our first graduates from the DMS, complete with qualification certificate and engraved memento. Since pursuing this training scheme, we have indeed had three members of staff promoted to management positions within the branch and many more in training. What a success!
Another way that we like to point out those who are going the extra mile is with our Employee of the Year award. This award goes to those who have stepped up during the year and shown outstanding commitment to the team and the company. Who wouldn’t want a city break for two with spends included?!
This year our fantastic Jade Sainty was the proud winner of Employee of the Year, and plans to whisk her other half, Matt, off to Venice for a long weekend. Sales Manager Jo said ‘Jade is an absolute credit to the team, always going above and beyond to deliver exceptional customer service’.
We mustn’t forget our two amazing runners up Georgina Spence and Stuart Robinson – two bottles of Möet coming your way!
Days like this really highlight the culture that we have at Coalters: a culture that displays our core values of respect, passion, integrity, teamwork, pro-activity and excellence. A company where the staff enjoy coming to work and are appreciated for the work that they do.
