Total Paint Shop Support starts with Bacon & a Brainstorm…
It’s the 2nd of Jan and the refreshed Ultrimax Coatings staff have returned to the office. At Ultrimax we always kick start the year with a strategy day between all staff to contemplate how we will increase our Total Paint Shop Support model and to gauge if the break has provided a gap in thought for some great new ideas to service our customer base.
The day begins with a bacon & egg sandwich cooked fresh on site by our own group of directors (see Bruce our Sales Director in his apron at the stove). At Ultrimax the directors strongly believe in treating staff as they would customers and therefore it isn’t unusual for routine lunch and special one off meals to be provided free of charge as part of a community spirit.
After a good breakfast Giles the MD kicks off the 2020 strategy meeting by reviewing our targets and some brainstorming to see how we could serve and supply customers better than we did in 2019, we’ve got plenty of new ideas around Total Paint Shop Support and innovations coming your way we’ll keep you posted!
After a positive discussion about Total Paint Shop Support our TPS4 model for helping customers from consultancy to product replacement we moved onto a few team building games for some lateral thinking.
First up the Helix game (raise and lower the paint extender pole whilst always ensuring fingers touch the pole) It’s harder than it looks and requires real concentration and team work to get it right. see the video of our first attempt .
Second up was the well known coastguard game where you find yourself deserted and need to prioritise items in importance to your survival..(it was worrying how many prioritised Rum over water and a signal mirror) .
After a successful meeting and team building everyone is now firmly pointing in the same direction for 2020 and looking forward to getting back to our posts, but a final surprise lay in wait…
