CWC Company Update October 2021

Good afternoon all, and a warm welcome to this month’s staff update.

September was a new plate month like we had never seen before. With New and Used car stock being very limited, it’s a testament to our sales teams’ hard work and motivation that a very respectable result was still achieved. And although the brand was back a colossal 63% year on year, we significantly bucked the trend by being back only 33%.

With new car stock starting to trickle through this quarter, we anticipate new car sales improving enabling us to end 2021 on a high.

The successes don’t end there, with the team at Site 5 who had a record Trade performance of £167k in September. Well done for setting us up well to kick off Q4.

On the Aftersales side, we saw another strong month with the teams balancing staff shortages and the increase in demand due to a front airbag safety recall.

And finally a reminder of our continued recruitment push and our recommend a friend campaign. With payments of between £750 – £1,000 per successful recruit, this is a great opportunity to earn some extra money so please do consider those you know for a career with MBSW.

Thank you for your continued hard work, I look forward to seeing you all on site soon.

All the best,

 

Mike

The business is committed to supporting staff members to maintain their health and we are pleased to confirm that we will once again support and fund any staff member who wishes to have the seasonal flu vaccine. The NHS are encouraging as many people to have the vaccination as possible with a warning that cases could peak around the Christmas period.

This year we will be offering ‘E-Vouchers’ in collaboration with Boots that can be redeemed at any of their pharmacies by simply booking a vaccination slot online. Each of our sites will be asked to confirm the number of vouchers required so that we ensure we order the correct number. Please make sure that you speak to your line manager by Friday 5th November to confirm if you would like to take up the offer of the vaccination. We would encourage as many of you as possible to protect yourselves, your families and your colleagues. Once the vouchers are ordered you will receive your ‘E-Voucher’ via e-mail directly from Boots. The vouchers are non-refundable so please ensure that once ordered, the voucher is redeemed.
