At Penmann we place great emphasis on teamwork as an essential part of building the future prosperity of the business so that everybody can share in our success.

We have put the whole team through The Engage & Grow programme from ActionCoach which has resulted in improved engagement, team work, performance, leadership and culture throughout the business.

This also led to a number of key positives including the development of agreed behaviours, the implementation of Personnel development plans and the improvement of company systems.
