World-renowned sports turf company chooses Howarths for management training

Managers from STRI UK in training with Howarths

A global producer of sports surfaces for events including the FIFA World Cup and the Olympic Games has looked to a Yorkshire based HR and employment law firm to upskill its UK management team.

STRI UK, part of the global STRI Group, has invested in management training from Cleckheaton based Howarths.

The firm delivered a bespoke management training course, commissioned by STRI UK research and operations manager, Dr Christian Spring.

Gavin Howarth, managing director at Howarths, said: “STRI UK approached us as part of a drive to upskill 18 of their UK managers in line with the company’s growth plans.

“Among other areas, we helped the team to explore what good management practice looks like, how effective management can be used to avoid issues at work, grievances and tribunals.”

Dr Spring said: “We have received some very positive feedback from the team who found the day very beneficial to their ongoing development.

They now have a deeper understanding of how to adapt their management styles to get the best out of their teams, ultimately leading to improved staff performance and better business results.”

STRI Group’s specialist consultants provide solutions for the design, construction and management of sports surfaces, with clients including the Wimbledon Championships, Sport England and the Rugby Football Union (RFU).
