Express & Star hosts chamber training session
Representatives of leading businesses from the Black Country learned ways of improving workplace performance during a training session hosted by the Express & Star.
The Black Country Chamber of Commerce's Platinum peer advisory group were coached on ways to support staff during the meeting, held at the Express & Star's Queen Street offices in Wolverhampton on Thursday.
Led by trainer Jerry Bernstein, the group were given advice on best practice to help staff become more connected to their roles.
The event allowed representatives to brainstorm ways of allowing colleagues to rediscover their passion for their work and tools for drawing out remarkable workplace performance.
The companies taking part included Truckman, Hill and Smith, Vacuum & Atmosphere, Gotronic, Zaun, Lord Combustion Services and Rubery Owen Holdings.
Chris Leggett, marketing and communications director for Express & Star publisher Midland News Association, hosted the event.
He said: "It was fantastic to host the chamber Platinum peer group for the workplace performance session as it gave those taking part the opportunity to process issues and analyse each other's strategies.
"Getting the best performance possible is a priority for every business and organisation, regardless of their sector.
"As Jerry showed through the training, helping employees to put more passion into their work can have a hugely positive impact throughout a business."
The group meets five times a year to offer training opportunities to senior managers from member businesses.
