Continuous Improvement

As a business Zero waste is one of our Direction of travel pillars. We have been working with SA partners since 2011, to develop our understanding of Lean practices and processes and how we can continually improve.

Our approach to learning has been to ‘grow our own’. We have invested in training and development, using the SA partner belt system which is affiliated to Cardiff University. This ensures we are all aligned and delivering the same objectives. In 2020 there were 200 good ideas. Everyday, someone, somewhere in our business is delivering an improvement.
