Morrisons managers check out Business on the Move!

Posted in: Training, Business, Other

Eight Morrisons HR & Training Managers recently took part in a Business on the Move workshop  at their Swan Valley Distribution Centre in Northampton.

 The half-day session demonstrated the versatility of the game by the managers playing  Level 1  first and quickly ratcheting up to the higher levels to include consideration of  carbon footprints, productivity gains, palletisation, pallet pooling and, finally, reverse logistics at Level 7.

 A new way of debriefing the learning from the game was trialled for the first time too by reflecting on aspects of “employability” that the game highlighted.

 All eight managers rated the session as “relevant to their needs”, “enjoyable” and said they “would recommend the training”.

 During the feedback session a wide range of potential target audiences for Morrisons’ use of Business on the Move surfaced. They included playing the game with the Senior Leadership Team and as part of the First Line Manager programme in addition to the game’s more obvious uses with graduates, new starters, graduates and local schools and colleges.

 The managers emphasised the importance of “agreeing a shared strategy” and indicated a strong preference for “practising with Morrisons’ people to become confident and competent before approaching external customers”.

 There were some individual perspectives too:

 “A fantastic learning experience ~ I now appreciate decisions that logistic leaders have to make.”

 “Innovative and fun….brings logistics to life.”

 “Interesting game that can be evolved for different levels (age) and business knowledge. Also good for a team-building exercise.”

 In short, an event highly rated by all.

A big thank you from us to all the Morrisons managers involved.
