This past month has involved a lot of training for Employees, which is usual for MGS. However, this time there was more of a focus on developing towards our Quality Standards. Our first lot of training focused on IATF 16949 Internal Audit training. This involved our employees completing a 2-day course to ensure we are IATF ready throughout the year. The second involved a team learning more about HACCP and Hazard and Risk Management for a day and the second day for Internal Audit Training. Both days in preparation for a BRC audit to become accredited in a couple of months. Overall, our employees gained 15 more certificates at the completion of this training.

Training at MGS

It can be easily said training is a very important aspect at MGS; we want our employees to have the knowledge that will allow them to excel in their job role. The opportunities we provide our employees will allow us to reap the rewards in the future. We already have a vast number of employees currently in further education, involved in college courses, training days and apprenticeships to name a few. This means there is always a range of training available for employees to take advantage of throughout the year. Also, being in the manufacturing industry and the looming skill gap, we want to ensure we can develop and retain the skills we need to succeed and grow. We see the developments we are making as a long term investment in our employees and for ourselves.

A quote to remember:

‘What if we train them and they leave?'

'What if we don’t and they stay?’
