How are the career development opportunities at phs Group?

Pros

Amazing culture. Lots of people have been here their whole career People are willing to speaking up which is a good thing....I get lots of questions and feedback (good and bad) Great career opportunities...there is more to phs than meets the eye. Greenleaf, Teacrate, Direct365, Besafe, Compliance, Sekonten, phs Direct Great products.....the best in the industry Service drivers are really impressive. They know our customers better than anyone else in the company The best service network in the UK. We look after over 240k washrooms Our lifecycle plant provides a real green solution to customers. No other company has this

Cons

We need to improve our service delivery but we are working hard on this We need to listen to our customers and be more customer focused. We have plans to improve this We are improving the way we communicate with our colleagues in phs. We recently introduced a quarterly video conference where all employees can participate and ask questions. It seemed to go down well

Advice to Management

Hmmmm.....that's a bit tricky. This is a question better answered by others There is lots to do but we have a great team and we are launching a new growth plan in September. I would encourage all management to get out and meet customers and spend time with our front line staff regularly

Great career opportunities...there is more to phs than meets the eye.
