Posted 24.01.2011

As a market leading sign franchise and the UK & Ireland’s largest sign company with over 75 centres, Signs Express prides itself on its excellent training and development programmes.

One such new scheme is aimed at encouraging staff engagement and the first training course held in January has received such positive feedback that two further courses are already subscribed.

Key staff members from production centres across the Country attended franchise Head Quarters in Norwich for 2 days of varied training from sales and marketing skills to health and safety and training on the latest new materials available in the market place.

The training programme follows a series of regional events for franchisees where external specialists were commissioned to provide wide ranging sales training techniques. 

Managing Director Craig Brown said, “The course provided us with an invaluable opportunity to spend time with some key members of staff from our production centres across the Country. We have often arranged regional meeting and training events for our franchisees but this was the first course specifically aimed at their staff and we are delighted with the feedback we have received.”

“A key part of our success is our reputation and this is largely down to the high quality products and service we provide; a direct reflection on the staff employed at our production centres. By engaging key personnel through these events we maintain our position as the UK & Ireland’s leading sign company.” 

The Signs Express centres involved in the first training session were: Lancaster, Newcastle, Northampton, Bedford, Milton Keynes, Norwich, Southampton and Derby.

Signs Express provides a wide range of signs and graphics solutions from interior and exterior signs to vehicle graphics, banners and exhibition displays. Signs Express has been regularly acknowledged in both the sign and franchise industries, most recently receiving recognition from the British Franchise Association in both the Franchisor and Franchisee national awards.
