I fully understand exactly where your coming from mate. I've worked on 8 wincanton contracts and seen first hand on how they lost the contracts on some. Some managers are from stobart so we say nothing about that. DHL has to many chiefs and not enough Indians who constantly interfere in managers work. I.e. Unilever, Tate and lyle etc. They need to retain the managers but unless someone takes charge and pick and retain the best managers then wincanton could lose more rather than gain..
Hi Grasi, I think we're slowly catching up and a lot of companies seem to be falling out of love with the big boys. My concern now is that we seem to be struggling to recruit and retain good managers. We recently lost our AGM who was genuinely one of the best managers the site and Wincanton have ever had and I now work for 2 of the worst managers I've ever known. Neither understand staff engagement or motivation and what was once seen as a best in class site is now at the lowest morale possible. What makes it worse is they've tried to bridge the loss by bringing more managers in and we honestly seem to have replaced one great manager with 4 poor ones. Wincanton just need to get back to understanding the need for great engagement and the wins will continue as more and more companies look at their reputation.
glad you're back.Some time ago you felt that win was lagging behind their competitors.Hve they closed the gap in the meantime?Currently they have a competitive edge as most of the big logistics Providers are foreign-owned and suffer from the weakness of sterling
Wincanton don't normally say it loses a contract. It's bad for business but what I can say is? They lost one contract but gained 4 and that's not including wilko. 1 of the contracts is very big but can't say until it's gone to print
