So local cost saving so they can buy Gwynedd Forklifts?? Not really growth if you can't keep your engineers busy and then buy a competitor...oh well never mind. It must be due to the covid farce.

It's an easy way to wean out the bad wood. All that was required was for managers to actually "manage" ?
As for pinching a few minutes I think that management has forgotten about the 1/2hour they steel off every engineer every day. I wouldn't mind so much but when they charge the customer for the time you've given up it makes my blood boil !
This spy in the cab system is the only system that penalises you for not crashing ! If you brake or take evasive action it lights up and marks you down ! What idiot thought that would be a good idea ?????

Always need to be mindful of costs but an Briggs engineer told me they have gone tracker mad, people getting reprimanded and finished for alleged misdemeanours identified that way. Start cutting from the top! Biggest savings come from those not earning the company cash by the hour.

Never have understood the proven value of rebranding, a tortoise will not move any faster if you call it a hare.

Nothing like not advertising you dealership brands to grow your customer base, bet you lost more than you saved.

Hi, the signage was refreshed after our rebrand in 2018. We saved money on not putting up new Hyster-Yale signage because it didn't contribute to our dealer excellence assessment.

They need to start with the manager who was an engineer. Used to turn up on site with his tool's in a tesco bag ??????

It very well could be, oh no it isn't !
I think it's a big mistake trying to offload your experienced skill base. It's not as if there's an abundance of skill out there due to the lack of investment in training and apprenticeships.

Hi Darkarcher, a sort of selling your R's down the recession river for a cup of magic beans sort of thing?
Not yet the pantomime season......or is it?

I'd be surprised if many would be foolish enough to take that offer , especially if you've got a few years service in.

Hi, to be eligible for the early retirement scheme you have to be over 55 with at least 5 years service, in which case you will have already been contacted with details of the scheme. Have you also been receiving the weekly business updates? The best source of up to date information.
