“Our growth hasn’t come without its growing pains,” says Uisdean Fraser, Managing Director at Synergie Environ.
The Glasgow-based company recently moved into a new office to cope with their rapidly growing client base. And with staffing increased from four to 12 in a year, predicted turnover of over £1m and a Dubai office in the pipeline, they needed support right away.
The company looked to Skills for Growth for help.
“Getting someone to make us stand back from the business helped motivate some well needed change,” Uisdean says.
“Skills for Growth allowed us to get the right advice to sustain our growth,” adds Marina Fraser, Director. "First we discussed our needs with Lauren Paterson, our Employer Engagement Adviser from SDS."
"She organised the next step which included Investors in People talking to our staff individually and understanding how our business operated."
As an engineering business charging daily rates to clients the team were apprehensive about the time commitment needed.
“But once we got the process started the benefits were ten-fold,” Marina says. “From the staff session we implemented things like regular team meetings, staff appraisals, objectives and pay structures.”
