Quickslide has been shortlisted as finalist in the G14 awards for best Training and Development Initiative with a submission that was personally signed by every member of the workforce.
The Yorkshire-based fabricator, that has always regarded its people as part of its commitment to World Class Manufacturing and Continuous Improvement, won the placement after reporting how the company reviewed and revised all of its planning, training and development procedures and is now looking to gain six-figure savings as a result.
Chairman Adrian Barraclough explained: “It is only natural that every member of the team should sign as a part of the submission because every one of them played their part in the review and in the continuing success it has brought us. In just the same way, if we are chosen as winners, they can all be equally as proud of the trophy.”
The submission spells out how Quickslide first identified its shortcomings and their causes, then how to overcome each one individually. Adrian added: “The result was that every member of the workforce became accountable problem solvers, understanding that this is their business and they will shape its future and benefit from its success. There are now many training systems that seamlessly align each department to the achievement of our vision.”
Quickslide is best-known for its acclaimed sliding sash windows, and the company has been instrumental in bringing this former niche product into the mainstream of the retrofit and new-build markets, but it also manufactures a wide range of other styles of windows and doors for trade, commercial and domestic customers.
