Westminster University Students Visit The Factory
On 5th September a group of Masters students studying Purchasing & Supply Chain Management at Westminster University visited the factory…
Following an introduction and overview by CEO Jenny Holloway the group were taken onto the Factory floor to understand the processes involved in operating an ethical UK factory.
Their objective was to learn about the internal management systems of the business and showed particular interest in understanding the flat structure as opposed to a hierarchy. We explained that with 11 different nationalities working on the factory floor it was important to be open and transparent to cater for all different cultures so a flat structure was key in operating effectively and efficiently.
The students all from Austria found the tour extremely beneficial to their studies. ’I have learnt about the management systems that not only has diversity, but also inclusion within the company. Thank you so much for your insight and clear passion for the business.’ Anton
Following the visit Course Lecturer Nicholas commented: ”˜Please pass on my thanks to Jenny for hosting today’s visit. I found it instructive and enjoyable and will be recommending that the same group visit again next year.’
We look forward to welcoming the next group of international students from Westminster University.
