The first few days in April made for a very busy Easter Break here at MAN Commercial as we started a record-breaking 12 new contracts. After a lot of preparation throughout March to mobilise the various sites across the country, it was rewarding and exciting to finally take over and welcome over 100 new members of staff to our team. Our Contracts Managers and HR team have enjoyed visiting the new locations country-wide which include Entertainment Centres in Norwich, Bath and Newcastle and busy Distribution Centres in Doncaster and Middlesbrough.
Our events team have been working hard as ever, covering 3 days at Aintree Festival including the extremely busy Grand National Saturday. We have also had teams at top sporting events such as the London Marathon and the Tyson Fury Press Conferences to mark his return.
Behind the scenes we have been focusing on our continued preparation for the new GDPR regulation, as well as various other training and development. We ran a 2 day Recruitment & HR Processes course at Head Office which was a great opportunity to get Managers and Supervisors from a mixture of sites and locations together to learn and share ideas. We are also putting a big focus on utilising our Apprenticeship levy to develop our existing staff, and have signed up several of our team for higher training over the next 12 months.
MAN Commercial have also been featured in this month’s BSIA Spectrum Magazine who ran an article on our history to mark our 25th anniversary this year.
