PP Control & Automation, Wednesday 25 April 2018

Landywood Green, Cheslyn Hay, Walsall WS6 7AL

The Importance of Employee Engagement

Taking place on April 25th, delegates will have the opportunity to tour one of the global leaders in strategic outsourcing and one of the UK’s fastest growing SMEs.

PP Control & Automation works with 13 of the world’s largest machinery builders from its 50,000 sq ft facility in the West Midlands and, whilst investment in technology is a priority, it lists employee engagement as the key ingredient in its success.

This Experience Day will look at the importance of instilling the right culture in your business and making sure staff not only understand it, but actually ‘drive it.

Delegates will hear about PP’s ‘Route 6’ scheme, 200-hour training plans for each employee and how more and more customers are looking at strategic outsourcing as a way of reducing lead times, increasing capacity and supporting new product development.

A representative from EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, will also be offering expert advice and hands-on training for anyone looking to boost employee engagement.

The Experience Day is ideal for Managing Directors and Operations Directors looking to discover how one of the leading manufacturers in the country operates.
