Bromborough, United Kingdom, June 29, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Transglobal Express, one of the UK’s leading courier and freight forwarding companies, continues to set high standards when it comes to the development of its staff. After a successful inspection by Investors in People North of England in May this year, the company has been awarded with its first “Investor in People” accreditation.
Investors in People identified 14 strong areas of the organisation including its leadership, focus and commitment to its staff, strong teamwork ethic and its commitment to sustainability. In the interviews being held with 13 of the 23 employees, the inspirational and strong leadership provided by the management staff and its Managing Director, Lawson Archer, were repeatedly mentioned. “You want to work for [Lawson Archer] and do not want to let him down. // He really does care about his staff and keeps us happy,” said the interviewees.
Beyond that, the report also reflected positively on Transglobal Express’ commitment to developing the skills of its staff. According to Investors in People, all employees are highly aware and capable of providing the best customer service. The interviewees said that there is an “excellent atmosphere where everyone tries to please the customers.” As a matter of fact, Transglobal Express holds probationary and annual appraisals with each member of staff in order to identify areas of improvement and to encourage a positive approach towards problem solving and achieving the right solutions for the customers.
Moreover, the organisation approaches the concept of teamwork from a holistic perspective where self-directed teams, willing to “go the extra mile,” are formed and an overriding positive work ethic is encouraged. Transglobal Express has stayed strongly committed to continuous improvement and long-term sustainability since its formation in 1993. As an Investor in People, the company aims to expand on its success by implementing the recommendations made in the report and aspires to maintain the accreditation in future years.
Transglobal Express is one of the UK’s leading independent freight forwarders.
Since its incorporation in 1993, Transglobal Express has gained an excellent reputation for its high quality air freight, sea freight and international courier services.
Beyond that, Transglobal Express has grown into an internationally renowned freight forwarding business. In 2005, Transglobal Express moved its premises from Birkenhead to a purpose built office and warehouse facility based in the Wirral International Business, enabling the company to centrally control and manage its International Courier, Air Freight and Sea Freight shipping services. The company also expanded internationally by opening an office at Frankfurt am Main Airport in Germany.
