Riddlesden manufacturer Calmag Ltd’s investment in staff training is paying full dividends as 5 of its employees have successfully completed various ISMM Sales qualifications and Business Administration.

Sophie Bailey has completed her Level 2 award in Business & Administration whilst Rosie Clarke completed her Sales Apprenticeship with the company together with gaining her Level 3 Certificate in the Principles of Sales.

Alec McGrath and Kayleigh McClarnon both successfully completed the Level 2 Award in Selling to customers, and the Level 2 Certificate in Sales and Marketing.

Commercial Sales Manager, Jonathan Swanbury, completed the Company’s success by achieving the Level 5 Awards within Sales forecasts and target setting, Coaching and Mentoring, and Leading a Team.

Managing Director, Charles Wysocki commented, ‘We take great pride in offering the opportunity to all our staff members to continually develop as professionals to further enhance their careers with us.’

‘They have all worked extremely hard to gain these awards which ultimately has seen a benefit to the Company as our business has increased, and investing in the right people will reap dividends in the long term.”

“We encourage all staff to develop in this increasingly competitive workplace and employees need to take on responsibility to develop and improve – this is what employers are looking for and we always try and assist but finding the right courses over the years has been a challenge.’

‘We are extremely pleased to have found Graham Webb at Yorkshire Sales & Marketing Developments, who has been an excellent training provider for our sales staff as we have linked the course to real-life situations. This helps our staff to implement what they learn rather than just ticking a box and receiving a certificate.’

Calmag is independently owned by Charles and Angela Wysocki and manufacture a range of water treatment products who sell to the UK plumbers merchants and wholesalers. The company was formed in 2001 which has seen the business increase over the years, which led them to move to larger premises at Riverview Buildings last year.
