Q3 updates: Conference, volunteering and training | Tennant

It was a fantastic week packed with team building activities, learning, networking, and training opportunities. 

Giving back with Foodbank
On day one of the conference, 30 of Tennant’s sales and service supervisors (based from all around Australia) gathered at Foodbank Glendenning for a charity day. 

Foodbank is an Australia-wide organisation that facilitates better access to much-needed food for families, children, elderly people, and even schools. They stock a range of supplies from vegetables and bread to canned goods, long-life milk, nappies, and even pet food.

While the team were at Foodbank, they picked, packed, and arranged supplies on pallets for underprivileged families. It was a very big day, packing some very large orders at the Foodbank warehouse. But they felt great satisfaction knowing that the extra hands were needed and made a genuine difference.
“As a team, we all contributed to making a positive difference to the lives of many Australians, by providing much-needed food relief,” said Nelly Manser, HR Manager, Tennant Australia and New Zealand.

As a regular volunteer with Foodbank, Tennant ANZ’s General Manager, Chad Angeli, was also glad to see the team involved. 

“Thank you to all Tennant ANZ team members that volunteered at the New South Wales Foodbank. I’m grateful to be a part of this team!” said Chad.

The team have found that giving back is certainly a rewarding way to kick-off a conference, and it helps them work together in a new environment. (Just like they did back in February at House with No Steps.) Tennant looks forward to future volunteering opportunities as a team!

By the way, if you’d like to do something similar with your team, why not volunteer with Foodbank? They rely on regular volunteers to provide supplies to families in need around Australia and welcome corporate groups and individuals.

Conference and training
The team spent the remainder of the week doing in-house training, strategising, and a mid-year review. 

“We had a fantastic mid-year review meeting with our field sales and service leaders.  We reviewed where we are making progress, outlined action items on where we still need to improve, but most importantly, we continued to build our culture around giving back to the community we work in,” said General Manager, Chad Angeli.

In the mornings, the whole team came together for learning, while in the afternoon, the sales and service teams broke apart to plan separately. They covered areas like:

  • Successes and areas of progress
  • How we’re tracking on different metrics
  • Action items for areas to improve
  • Changes needed to bridge gaps
  • Team culture

One highlight of the conference was getting a sneak peek at the new T7AMR unit that’s coming out at the end of October. The sales and service teams got the opportunity to see the new machine in action and will get further training and support in the coming months before it goes to market.

Bring on Q4 2019 and beyond!
It was great to bring the sales and service team together in one place for training and development. We’re all set to finish 2019 on a high note and with a clear, shared vision for 2020, we’re ready to start the new year with a bang!
