Teknor Apex: Listgrove Assessment Program Pays Dividends

Twelve months ago, Teknor Apex, Pawtucket, Rhode Island, USA, chose Listgrove, Stratford upon Avon, U.K., as its Human Resource partner to lead a management assessment and development program, aimed at fostering a culture that could meet ever changing industry demands. A keen advocate of people/team development, Simon Hubbard, Managing Director of Teknor Apex UK thoroughly recommends the Listgrove management program and says that it has paid dividends developing his team’s confidence and inner workings. Hubbard’s experience of tailored assessment and profiling, is that it allows the company to check the individual’s personality and behavioral characteristics as matched to their job function. ‘We can identify the strengths – and, as importantly, answer the question ‘can the weaknesses be overcome through training?’ This includes not only individuals but also the performance of the whole team.

In addition to the internal changes, the Listgrove program has helped Teknor Apex identify its recruitment needs and the personality profile of new recruits, enhancing the dynamics of the management team. With Listgrove’s support, Simon Hubbard has made three new additions across the functions of sales, customer service, logistics and plant management.

The focus on Human Resource initiatives has helped contribute to what has been Teknor Apex’s best ever year, globally, with improvements in sales and market share all across the board, in areas such as nylon compound, PVC compounds, and thermoplastic elastomers.
