Carrying on the trend this year for starting a new contract each month, we were excited to start work for two brand new clients on 1st June. Manning busy distribution centres for both, our mobilisation teams worked hard to get everything in place for takeover. We welcomed 15 new staff by TUPE transfer on these contracts, and we are delighted to have them join our team.
June is always a busy month for our Events Staff; we had teams covering Ed Sheeran, Little Mix and a range of sporting events.
At the beginning of June we received the exciting news that two of our officers had been chosen as Regional Winners for the BSIA Awards. Having been members of the BSIA for over 10 years and being strong supporters of their work, we were very excited that our officers have been recognised for the outstanding work they do daily. Allan was Regional Winner in the Service to Customer category, and Imran took the prize for Outstanding Act. The regional presentation was held at our Solihull Head Office and was attended by many of our Managers and Directors who all took time to congratulate our winners.
MAN Commercial are patrons of Made In the Midlands, and we enjoyed exhibiting at their annual Expo at the Coventry Ricoh Arena in June. The Expo invites all Made in the Midlands Members to exhibit and is attended by over 2000 visitors from the engineering industry. It was a great opportunity to hand out promotional packs, meet lots of new contacts and enjoy networking.
In June we were also delighted to attain our highest ever score on our ACS audit, achieving 160 points. Our team all worked really hard om ensuring we passed the audit with ease, and received praise from the auditors for the new processes and practises we have put in place this year, as well as our attention to the new GDPR regulation.
We have been saying for sometime we would like to do something special in our 25th year that involves all of our staff throughout the country; it is so important to us here at MAN that our teams feel engaged and valued wherever they are based. With this in mind we designed and had made our very special 25thAnninversary Cupcakes! We will be visiting sites over the next few months to deliver the cakes. Pictured are our team at Bright House in Manchester receiving theirs.
