We are a company steered by a leadership team of experienced, well respected Managers across various aspects of the business. A branch manager’s council ensures that valuable input is provided on decisions affecting customers.
The technical knowledge and know-how contained within Ashdown-Ingram’s network is second to none. In conjunction with our employee value proposition, Ashdown-Ingram ensures that the right staff are recruited and retained within the business, therefore maintaining a key competitive advantage.
Our philosophy of continual improvement is demonstrated by annual staff and customer surveys and a focus on career development is nurtured by ongoing performance coaching and internal rewards and recognition programmes. We harness the talent of our people and equip them with the skills to be highly successful through a variety of career enrichment and development opportunities.
It is through this career development framework that we are in a position to retain highly skilled people - further strengthening our workforce and enhancing our profile as an employer of choice.
Commitment to Safety
We strongly believe a safe business is a key performance indicator of a well run and successful business. Safety is a very important priority, aligned with our Company Value of “we genuinely care”.
We have a number of safety initiatives in place, aligned to our philosophy of “my brother’s keeper”. We have a trained “Safety Officer” at each of our sites, who works closely with the Manager and team as the “safety champion”.
We conduct monthly site safety audits, provide on-line safety training across the business, provide monthly bulletins on an important safety topic and regularly review our safety practices.
