Starting on January 9th we’ll be running a Group virtual cycle race, with teams from each site competing against each other to complete a 400 mile round trip between our 3 UK locations - Tewkesbury to Brighton and finishing in Dartford. All from the comfort of our own work place. 400 miles may not sound much but there’s likely to be surprise challenges and hurdles along the route, so our riders can't get too comfy in those seats!

We're doing this to raise money for the NSPCC, the leading children's charity fighting to end child abuse in the UK and Channel Islands. They help children who have been abused to rebuild their lives, protect those at risk, and find the best ways of preventing abuse from ever happening. We're supporting this fantastic charity because every child deserves the best possible chance to rebuild their life after abuse.

If you are able to sponsor our teams and to help the NSPCC to give more children the support they need, please visit our Just Giving page....Thank you!

One of the speakers at the recent Annual Manufacturing Debate raised a key point when discussing the skills gap within the industry. He suggested that we need to move away from hierarchical based descriptions such as high, mid and low skill levels towards the more attractive Academic, Technical and Manual terms. Attracting young engineers into STEM subjects and apprenticeships, as well as raising the general perception of engineering as a career choice requires a concerted change in the way we promote the opportunities that exist. The devil is in the detail and three simple words could help make the difference. What do you think?

It's all in the detail...
We use continuous improvement initiatives such as Lean, 5S, Visual Management, and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to support our efficiency and quality targets, and ensure we meet all compliance criteria. http://kenard.com/about/quality-assurance/  #quality   #manufacturing   #engineering
