This year has seen us invest more money in staff training than ever before in order to capitalise on the booming market and meet an increase in our customers’ demands.
We have doubled the amount of staff training this year, with virtually every member of the company having completed a course of some kind since January.
Not only are we one of only a few names in the industry to design and manufacture our own range of temporary buildings and canopies, we are also one of only a small number of companies to use our own in-house, qualified staff, rather than subcontractors, to erect our temporary buildings to ensure a high standard of service and a quality finished product.
To achieve this, we put each employee through an extensive period of staff training to ensure that they can operate equipment such as cherry-pickers and fork lifts effectively, as well as qualify for CSCS cards to enable them to work safely on construction sites.
This year, all of our operations staff are also studying for NVQ qualifications, while we have increased the amount of health and safety training and given our commercial staff additional sales training too.
Scott Jameson, Director of Sales for Spaciotempo, said doubling its training provision will not only keep the company ahead of its rivals, it will also enable it to meet customers’ increasing demand for reliable information as more and more companies invest in temporary buildings to support their growth strategies.
He said: “We are currently experiencing a rise in orders and noticing that, as customers become more experienced in specifying temporary buildings, they are requesting more information when we speak to them.
“This is partly because, increasingly, our customers are big-name companies whose facilities and operations staff are experienced enough to know about health and safety and building regulations and need to know that their suppliers are aware of their responsibilities too.
“We welcome that, because it reflects the increased awareness of our products and our service and by ensuring our staff are the most knowledgeable and reliable in the industry, we will give our customers peace of mind when we are handling their project.”
