Defra funding helps Delamore team leaders receive training boost

Funding from Defra, via the RDPE programme, has enabled young plants grower, Delamore, to put its team leaders through a MorePeople two-day training programme covering interpersonal skills and communication, effective delegation, coaching and giving feedback, and personal organisation and time management.

Delamore HR & marketing manager Adam Parry said: "Having identified the need to do something for our team leaders we then had the issue of finding a programme that suited us and our industry.

"Working with MorePeople, we were able to fully achieve our aims, as they are sector specialists who understand our business and so were able to tailor the elements of the two days specifically to our needs.

"We need our supervisors to develop their abilities to manage, and be sensitive to, a wide range of cultures and get the best out of their diverse teams."

MorePeople helped Delamore access the funding from Defra.

Said Parry: "This was a key factor for us as was being able to deliver the training now as it means we were able to train the whole of our supervisor team in advance of our peak activity period. So hopefully, over the next few months we'll start to see even more benefits materialise for the business as they develop their new found skills, build up their and confidence and turn the techniques they've picked up over these two days into practical tools they can use every day."
