We Are Celebrating!

One year to the day since we relaunched Wallace Whittle, we are delighted with how the past twelve months have gone for the company in a whirlwind of activity, and development.

The last year has been all consuming for me to say the least, and I simply would not have it any other way. I would like to make special mention of our fantastic staff and my fellow Directors, who have faced the challenge head on, sharing my drive and ambition to make Wallace Whittle market leading in every single area we possibly can while maintaining our key focus on quality of product and quality of service at all times.

Highlights of the year have seen the business firmly establishing itself once again across key sectors and regions, and also growing in terms of order book and in staff numbers and office locations.

Our celebrations include the launch of Newcastle as our 8th office, which fits very much in with our medium term business plan of enhanced regional growth across England, while maintaining organic growth in Scotland, Ireland and the Middle East. We are also celebrating the growth of our market leading Sustainability team, headed by David Spiteri, as we and our clients face the global climate emergency.

In-house the development of our very own WW:BeneFIT portal, WW:Direct online shop and WW:Intranet have also been very important, as these platforms allow us to engage much more closely with our staff while also enhancing their overall package and providing additional benefits for them and their families.

Looking to the year ahead, we are again sitting with a very healthy order-book across all offices and we expect continued managed growth in certain key locations.

A particular focus for me is the internal appointments of Raymond Kelly to become our Quality and Standardisation Manager and Paul Hargreaves to become our Academy Manager. These internal appointments will allow us to put much greater emphasis to both of these massively important areas.

The WW:Academy in particular is a key company objective as this will allow us to attract and develop new staff, as well as providing a targeted focus on existing aspiring staff and the next generation, to let us develop and “grow our own” via various programmes over the coming months and years.

As always I’m only too happy to chat further about any areas covered in this newsletter or our business, so please get in touch.
