TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT>>>>>

When considering training SWM:

  • Assess and agree training needs with individuals

  • Create detailed training and development plans

  • Consider learning styles and personality

  • Plan training and evaluation

  • Design materials, methods and deliver training

We believe that training and developing our people is not only good for their personal development but is also good for organisational performance, quality, effective management control, and most importantly customer satisfaction.

It is our belief that by operating in this way our staff will perform better, gain a greater degree of job satisfaction, enhance their wellbeing and stay around long enough to become expert at what they do.

All of our Depot Managers receive accredited Technical Competence training and all staff receive Induction, Health and Safety, Environmental and Legislative Training as well as vocational training associated with their job functions

SWM are working in partnership with Petroc College to establish a Waste & Recycling Apprenticeship Scheme.
