Abel and Cole are an organic fruit and veg (and lots more) home delivery business.
What we did
- Happy ran a fortnightly workshop for all Abel & Cole’s managers, covering HR basics, recruitment, giving feedback, running effective meetings, and motivating teams, followed by individual 1 to 1 management coaching
The benefits, as measured by the client
- All managers, new and experienced, manage their teams to the same high standards and norms.
- Staff morale and loyalty increased through the company.
- Peer-to-peer support between managers reduced their need for support from MD.
- After the training, Abel & Cole was placed in the UK’s Top 20 Great Places to Work.
“It really seems to have inspired people. People are actually excited about being good managers. They have an idea of what that is, and a sense of it being possible. We needed people to work together as a team rather than continually looking upward for guidance. That is now happening. They are working together, asking each other for help.”
