StyleTech Helps Ideal Standard Worldwide Team Achieve Their Potential
StyleTech Solutions has been hailed by bathroom manufacturer Ideal Standard International for helping it ensure thousands of staff across the company are given effective career development opportunities and support at all times.
With more than 9,500 employees across more than 20 countries, managers at Ideal Standard approached StyleTech looking for a new system to ensure they could better manage and assess the development of staff. The main objective for the new system was to ensure appraisals were not being missed, and that appropriate career goals and challenges were being consistently set and reviewed, not only for staff but also senior managers across the business.
Communications Director for Europe at Ideal Standard, a company which includes many operating brands including the famous Armitage Shanks in the UK, said it had previously used a ‘clunky’ online system relating to staff performance and appraisals which offered no clear overview or process to ensure its Human Resources department could accurately manage and assess the effectiveness of staff development across the company.
“Previously, we had a system which was fairly ineffective in terms of allowing HR managers to run reports and access data for all employees in their respective countries,” he said. “We wanted a system which would include bespoke tools to give us a real insight into the development of staff across the business and enable us to access reports. StyleTech have delivered just that”.
