The John F Hunt Group recognises that one of its best management tools for the business is keeping all employees informed and most importantly, communicating.
Communication Is The Key…
We believe we can improve employees’ performance, productivity and commitment if they are given regular, accurate information about the Group, their jobs, current projects, new equipment, training, regulation updates and health and safety. This develops greater trust and increased job satisfaction.
All senior management including Managing Directors and the CEO operate an ‘open door’ policy for everyone in the Group, to actively encourage the free flow of communication.
Monthly meetings are held between management and staff on site and in the offices and depots throughout the UK, covering all manner of inductions, toolbox talks, briefings, reviews and presentations, ensuring that every person is up to speed and fully trained within their field.
All necessary staff have the latest phones, ipads and laptops to enable information sharing and communication whether on site, in meetings or on the move.
Investing in Technology Advancement To Keep In Touch…
We have our own in house IT, Communications and Digital Marketing company, who manage all aspects including our websites within the Group. Below are a few examples of programs and software used within the Group:
