R & O 2019 WRAP UP
We can hardly believe that in just a few weeks time we will all be celebrating the fact that we are entering a new year AND a new decade. Although it is always important to look forward, we must take the time to reflect and appreciate where we are coming from.
OH WHAT A YEAR!
So much has happened in 2019 and I'm pretty sure we can all testify that it has been nothing short of a rollercoaster.
At the start of the 2019 Alysia, Shameika and Djamilla began interviewing for a new member of staff. There were many applications but no one seemed to have that 'edge' management was looking for. Julie became 'the update queen' with her morning routine; sorting the boys out, making teas and updating Wates all before 9.30 am. Denise joined the team with fire in her belly to improve the office operations as Alysia prepared to leave for Maternity.
Work on Wates began to slow down but the team stayed determined to work extremely hard, focused on procurement. The hard work paid off- we currently have 3 ongoing contracts plus Plentific. Checkatrade has picked up and positive reviews have increased which has also lead to more bookings so we can gladly say that the diary is regularly booked up at least a week in advance! The office team have built a positive rapport with R&O clients which helps when chasing payments - this is presently happening on a weekly basis.
Chunky, Uriah and Callum have worked hard to ensure targets are being met. Next year we plan to work smarter to exceed the targets. Sheldon .and Zach have big dreams to drive to the business and so far so good; R & O have seen a double in productivity in comparison with 2018 end of year performance.
R&O are also happy to announce that our website finally launched this year and has smooth navigation and useful functions, check it out here. Also, the office has become paperless! We will continue to look for ways to improve a green footprint- if staff have any suggestions, please mention in the next staff meeting.
