Over the past tricky year, with many teams working remotely, people on furlough and business as usual so disrupted, it has been easy to feel isolated. Whatever measures are in place for keeping in touch, nothing quite gives the same feel of team support as being back in the office together.
At Forms Plus we have been lucky to be able to carry on (almost!) as usual through the pandemic. In fact, business has grown, partly in line with our existing expansion plans and partly fuelled by the nationwide boost in e-commerce. This has meant a few personnel changes and new members joining our team, so we thought we would take this opportunity to update you all.
First of all though, we have some important occasions to mark for existing team members….
Congratulations to Jo and Kayley
After celebrating Victoria Andrews’ 30 Years at Forms Plus a few months ago (with some fabulous photos of her hair dos through the years!), it is now time for Jo Carter, our Finance Director to celebrate. Jo has now been with the company for an incredible 25 years. We are all so grateful to Jo for her long service, helping steer our ship for so long and keeping us on the financial straight and narrow. Thanks Jo and here is to the next 25!
Kayley Saunders has been with Forms Plus since 2016 and is a Print Co-ordinator. You might remember her wedding photos, when she visited us in her wedding gown on the back of her grandfather’s classic truck. Kayley went on maternity leave in January and gave birth to Torvin Michael David on 19th February, weighing 7lb 6oz. Welcome to the world Torvin and congratulations Kayley.
Welcome To Our New Team Members
Alex Kemp has joined us as Telesales Team Leader. Energetic, ambitious and considerate, Alex grew up locally in Falmouth and enjoys playing football, watching football and spending time with his family at the weekends. His favourite piece of advice anyone has given him is “It only takes one good call to turn your day around.” So, why not give Alex a call soon and ask him how his team got on at the weekend?
Amelia Labdon is new to the team as an Administrator. Amelia is a West Country girl having grown up in Somerset and is enjoying living in Cornwall, especially sea swimming and watching the sunset. Her favourite piece of advice is, “When you get stressed or something is bothering you, talk about it, don’t bottle it up.” She describes herself as organised and friendly so we think she should fit right in!
Sabrina Burton Nicholls has joined Forms Plus as our Accounts Assistant. She describes herself as social, loving and determined. This is reflected in her own favourite piece of advice – “Don’t give up, you can do anything!” Sabrina grew up in London and enjoys woodwork, making stuff and anything creative. Like many of the Forms Plus Team, she is also keen on keeping fit.
As regular readers of our blog will know, we work hard to look after our team and each other, not only with formal schemes such as the Healthy Workplace Award projects we get involved with, but as friends who have, in many cases, worked together for many years. Not only does that help with morale and enjoying work, it also means that we have built up a strong core of knowledge and experience that benefits our customers.
Our new Team Members all look forward to working with you. Do get in touch if we can help at all with your labels or packaging requirements.
