Your Voices Into Actions – Communications Forum

Last week we held the UK Communications Forums.  Voices into Actions resizedThe 14 employee representatives from around the country spent two days listening to presentations from Jesus Gonzalez, the Operational VPs and various other speakers, covering topics such as Health and Safety, Customer Centricity, Sustainability and Employee Engagement.

They also had the opportunity to ask questions that arose from the presentations as well as during the open forum.  They were able to pose the questions that their constituents had asked them to raise.

Copies of the presentations and the Questions and Answers will be given to the employee representatives to cascade through their local forums and the majority will also be uploaded to Shift in due course.

As part of the Communications Forum we also conducted a ballot to elect one more representative to go to the European Consultative Committee that is held each year. This year it is in Madrid on 27 – 28 September. Our new representative was Paul Whyte, Fitter from Doveholes Quarry.  He is joining our three existing representatives – Ian Horstwood from Cement Operations in South Ferriby, Sonny Netto from Rail Solutions, and Tom Hunter from Readymix Scotland. We would like to thank Mark Renshaw from Readymix Northern for his commitment and support for the ECC over his four year tenure.

The UK Communications Forum enables the employee representatives and the Management Team to discuss issues that are concerning your constituents and it allows us to share important information and messages through to the local forums.
