Competitive Edge & Confidence in our Brand

Theresa Middleton, HR Manager for Falfish who presented at the event said “Falfish is recognised as a growing business investing in their people and the community (Home Grown Talent) against a backdrop where the current economic situation has led to a vast majority of organisations either freezing or decreasing their Training budgets”.

Falfish Limited are currently working in partnership with Cornwall College and Seafood Cornwall to design a work based learning programme, which is tailored around the current needs of the business, future needs of the market and employee desire to develop within the company.

Focusing on the up-skilling of a successful workforce, in order to ensure we continually improve.   18 employees have applied and have been successful for enrolment. A further 8 employees have asked to be enrolled onto a numeracy and literacy course in order to improve their learning skills in order to join the next cohort of the excellence programme.  This programme will be the first of its kind within the seafood industry.

"SOAR" (Skills, Opportunities, Achieve, Results) which is a result of £7.8 million of funding provided by European Social Fund (ESF) Convergence to train and develop frontline staff in Cornish businesses. Stephen Martin delivered an entertaining and practical keynote speech at the event, describing his unique experience as part of the Channel 4 documentary in 2009, which saw him working covertly alongside his frontline staff, discovering what they really thought of his management decisions. The event also saw local businesses provide their perspectives on the importance of training and developing people, including Falfish and Cornwall Care.
