Management Development, Recruitment and Personal Development Review training

Helston Garages Group's 37 franchises employ in the region of 1000 people throughout south west England.  We recently completed a programme of training with them for which we received some outstanding feedback (see delegate feedback at the bottom of this page).

Sarah Burley, Group HR Director gave us some background on working at Helston and on working with Crisp Professional Development;

"A major part of our success has been the emphasis that we place on creating and maintaining a skilled, knowledgeable and contented workforce.

The effectiveness of this approach is demonstrated by the large proportion of our workers who stay at Helston for many years. Over a fifth of our staff have been with the company for a decade or more, with around 50 of our staff still working at Helston Group after 20 years.

We offer a secure, stable working environment for our employees. Career development is enthusiastically encouraged by the management, with dedicated programmes helping workers with their progression, and our apprenticeship scheme for young technicians launching many careers.

We came upon Crisp by searching for training companies in Exeter! We liked their website, made contact and every dealing we have had with them since has been efficient, personable and professional.

We have used them in 3 main areas to date for; a 6 month Management Development Programme for our budding managers of the future; a half day Recruitment workshop for existing managers and how to run Personal Development Reviews for existing managers.

In all training programmes Crisp have listened closely to what we wanted to achieve and actioned a programme accordingly.  Feedback from those attending the courses has been excellent and the Directors have felt like the training has added real value to the business.

I would definitely recommend Crisp to other companies in the South West"

Feedback from Helston Garages delegates on the training provided by Crisp Professional Development:

"I wouldn't change a thing. The training is some of the best training I have had in my 12 years in the motor trade"

"Positive constructive and relevant"

"By far the most enjoyable course I have been on in a very long time, Julia was amazing"

"A massive thank you to the whole team and Crisp. You all have been so welcoming and attentive. The training has been second to none thanks to Julia and it's been a pleasure to have been in your company"

"There were a lot of interesting models, such as BIFF, GROW and the support and challenge model which I found particularly interesting"

Following the success of this programme, we have just agreed dates with Helston to run this programme again for a whole new group of staff - we look forward to working with them again very soon.
