Jacuzzi Group UK appoints Howarths for people programme to drive business growth
The UK division of Jacuzzi Group has appointed West Yorkshire based HR consultancy Howarths to design and deliver bespoke management training as it chases ambitious growth plans.
The company, which has bases in Yorkshire and Sussex and employs more than 6,000 people globally, has commissioned Howarths to design and deliver a structured management training programme and ongoing professional coaching for members of its UK management team.
Gavin Howarth, managing director at Howarths, said: “Jacuzzi Group is an industry leader, owning several of the most well-known hot tub, swim spa, bath and sauna brands in the world – notably, Jacuzzi®, Hydropool, and Sundance Spas®.
“The company recognises the link between happy and engaged employees and achieving its ambitious growth plans and has engaged Howarths to deliver a series of bespoke management training and engagement workshops that will empower the business to achieve greater success through its people.
“This includes ILM accredited management training covering topics including the role of a manager, employment contracts and handbooks, and disciplinaries and sickness management – as well as facilitating team building and development to drive communication, collaboration, and critical thinking.
“We have also worked with Jacuzzi Group to design and implement a new companywide induction process and bespoke performance management documentation for all managers to follow.”
Duncan Simcox, Managing Director UK at Jacuzzi Group, said: “Our people shape the future of our business. At Jacuzzi Group we have a ‘one team’ ethos where everyone works together to achieve our long-term vision. Part of that ethos means our people take absolute ownership in delivering on responsibilities, and this has been a key part of our rapid growth in recent years.
“Investing in their development and enhancing their skills and knowledge is crucial to help achieve our ambitious growth plans. Ongoing professional coaching for our managers demonstrates our commitment to individual learning and development, and the ILM accredited management training from Howarths gives our managers the practical tools and knowledge to confidently and effectively manage their own teams and address people issues as and when they arise.”
Jacuzzi Group manufactures hot tubs, swim spas, baths, showers, and saunas that are enjoyed in more than 100 countries and the company employs over six thousand people around the world.
