Upskilling staff refers to the process of providing employees with additional training and development opportunities to acquire new skills, knowledge, and competencies.
This has worked especially well with employees we’ve taken on who are working parents/carers and have previously taken jobs with hours to work around school hours etc with no growth within. With us they now have the opportunity to train for level 3+ qualification and earn increased earnings, as well as working the hours to suit them.

Healthcare in the workplace is not only beneficial for our employees but will lead to improved productivity, reduced absenteeism, and a more positive work environment. It plays a crucial role in attracting and retaining top talent and is an essential component of a comprehensive employee benefits package.
Families, parents and caregivers play a central role in child well-being and development. They offer identity, love, care, provision and protection to children and adolescents as well as economic security and stability.
This is why here at UKT&P flexibility for our staff is important to us. We provide childcare during the summer holidays and offer flexible working hours to work around daily childcare helping them get that work-life balance, resulting in improved well-being and mental health, increased productivity and enhanced employee engagement.
We all know times are tough right now with the cost of everything creeping up. This is why at UKT&P, doing something as small as providing lunch for employees is so important. The lunches cooked by Mandy are healthy & nutritious; by doing this, we are happy that everyone is getting at least one hot dinner a day.
We believe that providing meals at the workplace ensures that our employees have easy access to nutritious food. Proper nutrition has been linked to increased energy levels, concentration, & cognitive function, which can lead to improved job performance & productivity.
We have a F1 Stock Car team made up of Ash and some of the UKT&P employees, they are out most weekends racing all over the country.
By participating in a racing team, employees can develop stronger bonds, trust, and camaraderie, which we believe can translate into better collaboration and productivity in the workplace.
The racing involves a range of skills, including driving, vehicle maintenance, strategy, and decision-making. Our employees can acquire and hone these skills, which may be transferable to their roles within the company. For example, improved decision-making and strategic thinking can benefit employees on a day today basis.
The adrenaline rush and the focus required in racing is proving to help individuals manage stress and improve their mental well-being, leading to increased job satisfaction and reduced burnout.
When employees are enthusiastic about their extracurricular activities, they are more likely to bring that enthusiasm and motivation to their work.
Being part of a racing team can contribute to employees' personal growth by pushing them out of their comfort zones and encouraging them to set and achieve goals. This personal development can have a positive impact on their professional lives as well.
