Improved Processes

“Quicker delivery of a project into the business. Once fully embedded it is worth £1m per annum savings.” 

“New cashing-up procedures that allow for cash payments has generated increased revenue of c.£700 per day in one outlet!” 

“Because our Team found the best way to anticipate the works, we haven’t had any claims from tenants – saving overall €300-€500k” 

"The positive moment is the realisation that a command culture is not the only way to get improvements! Coaching and development will help sustain long-term results, not just short-term fixes."

Labour Management

“Working with the Operations Team helping them solve their own issues relating to labour management – saved £4m YTD.” 

“Halved annual sickness rate, saving around £2,000 in shift cover.”

Leveraging Performance

“It allowed me to get the most out of a talented, eager but inexperienced graduate. The completed project probably saved us c£50-£100k. The ongoing benefits to the business are unquantifiable.”

Creating Win/Win Relationships with External Suppliers and Unions

“The supplier ... couldn't understand the impact they have on our operations if the service goes wrong. Taking up a coaching approach stopped the e-mail tennis and we now meet F2F to resolve at monthly intervals. I am adopting the approach to help support a win / win culture.” 

 “Long-term issues have been resolved through a change of approach, including certain discussions with trade unions and, what had been re-occurring, weekly delivery issues, including a reduction in operational cost, delivering 11% YOY improvement."
