FiFab Skills for Growth Initiative
FiFab made use of the Skills for Growth initiative to identify priorities for development. The initiative helped the firm, which employs 128 people, find growth potential through providing training in management and leadership and in using Excel spread sheets.
Director of Sales and Marketing at the firm, John Penman, said: “We wanted to ensure that we were future- proofing the team. “The dynamics of business is changing so quickly through efficiency and technology that we had to make sure that we were meeting requirements. “We recently invested more than £250,000 in an enterprise resource planning system which makes far greater use of spread sheets and data, so people needed to be able to use that effectively.
