For more than 70 years Lotus has been at the forefront of innovation in the car industry offering the best sports car customer experience in the world, attracting and retaining the highest calibre employees which enables them to build on Lotus’ brand values.
Employees are offered a challenging, rewarding and diverse career, where everyone enjoys striving to deliver the best for their clients in fast moving global markets.
At Group Lotus, employees are supported in realising their full potential providing them with the best opportunities to develop the right skills and knowledge to manage a career successfully and respond to the challenges of business.
As part of this, Group Lotus include both internal and external training, professional qualifications, on-the-job coaching, and mentoring.
A need was identified for a general requirement to up-skill and develop various functions within their Supply Chain Department, and the training team put out feelers for a professional external trainer.
A client who had used PMS in the past highly recommended their services and a suite of training was set up.
As there were a number of team members requiring training, it was decided to set up In-house courses – covering key roles in the following areas: buyers, senior buyers, material planners, expeditors.
The training included a series of two-day courses on Negotiation, Improving Purchasing Performance Effective Stock Control and Effective Expediting.
Over a 6 week period 33 Lotus employees were trained. The training generally widened everyone’s knowledge of the subject matter in hand and helped everyone to get a fresh approach to their day to day roles.
There was great feedback across the board of all those trained – here are a couple that summarise the main comments.
‘Gareth was exceptional, fantastic pace, kept it fresh and interesting’
Ben Morgan, Material Planner
‘Excellent trainer answered all our questions and very clearly presented. Lots of great examples’
