The vision of the organisation was created by eveyone in it - so easy to sell! How Westmill will go about delivering it has been developed by a broad senior leadership team approximately 35 people who are passionate and share their energy and drive with their teams. The MD also engages with every individual across the entire business and runs events where he actively engages people to think about their strategy and how it relates to the decision the business needs to make and how this relates to them and their role be it Finance Director or factory cleaner.
Westmill have a strong Action Learning approach. This works for them for two reasons. Firstly, the company want their people to be part of their future therefore engage every single employee in a process to derive the Mission and Behaviours. This is action learning because it is the line managers and their leadership team who create and deliver the process to do this. This builds important skills around project management, facilitation, leadership and listening on a real business issue rather than in simulated training exercises. Westmill people learn and develop key skills and the business benefits from the work they are doing on a real business issue.
Westmill have pay reviews, pay benchmarking and recognition awards for those performed well.
