Record Amount of Training held/committed for 2016 in Maxi Haulage

Training and development  is a huge part of what we do at Maxi Haulage.

Each year our spend and activity level rises and has risen over each of the past 5 years. 

Our Managing Director, Alan Miles, commented “developing people is core to what we try to achieve.  Where possible we try and recruit from within and that means serious development and training.  In a 12-month period we have put 18 people through intensive in-house development programmes.  There is some detail elsewhere on the website re what this involves. ”

The training takes place at most levels – as an example Alan Miles, Managing Director, has done the IOSH MANAGING SAFETY course.
