We were delighted back in May to be contacted by the North East England Chamber of Commerce, letting the team know we had been shortlisted for the Commitment to People award in the upcoming Chamber Business Awards.
Moody Logistics and Storage is truly committed to helping loyal staff in the business who want to progress their career, and we have enjoyed seeing people in the business succeed with our backing. We helped Mark Fisher make the transition from being one of our Class 1 driver's to now managing the day-to-day planning of dedicated transport in the operations team as Logistics Manager. Mark gained his Supply Chain Management open university course back in 2019, funded by the business to help Mark develop his skills and industry knowledge.
More recently in our commitment to bringing new blood into the industry, we brought our apprenticeship scheme in-house after the pandemic caused delays to applying for provisional licences and booking test dates through the government's scheme.
The awards evening which took place on 14th July was a black tie affair, and we were delighted to have a table of 10 with every department represented from drivers and warehouse, to admin and directors. Unfortunately we weren't the winner on the night, but it was fantastic to hear about businesses showing ingenuity in processes and staff retention.
