MANAGEMENT training is under way at a garden centre group.
Terry Head, retail and marketing director at Stewarts Garden Centres, has completed an 18-month course for developing business leaders endorsed by the Institute of Leadership and Management.
A further six of Stewarts centre managers and senior team members are also currently pursuing a 12-month management development course.
The company is now set to provide a further three courses for supervisors from all of its centres, including staff from the recently acquired Abbey Garden Centre at Titchfield, and the Christchurch and Wimborne centres, that will involve planning exercises with focus on time and resources management.
‘This training helps to ensure that we maintain our standard and values for the benefit of our customers,’ said Mr Head.
