What some of our customers say?
“The work FOTP provided for us in preparation for carrying out our first employee engagement survey was crucial in supporting the development of our new goals, vision and values. Insights they uncovered enabled us to address critical feedback areas from our employees and adjust the implementation accordingly. Throughout the process, FOTP were responsive, attentive and professional and we would not hesitate to recommend them”.Managing Director
“We were really pleased with the process; a professional approach together with an impressive depth of analysis. FOTP delivered on time at all stages and we enjoyed great communication throughout.”Managing Director
“In joining up with FOTP I gained an overall insight into the strength of the relationship we have with our supply partners. It allowed me to understand where the relationship was working well and what aspects we had got right in dealing with our suppliers. This is very important to understand for any business. Notably however it is just as important to understand what areas the suppliers think need to be improved to strengthen the relationship, upon this point the work by FOTP was particularly enlightening; it is relatively easy to know your strengths but more difficult at times to identify weaknesses. In working with FOTP I believe they have opened my eyes as to how our suppliers view us, knowing this information has now allowed me to start addressing issues that have been raised. Lastly the independence that FOTP brings allows, I believe, a more truthful picture of the way we operate with suppliers to be gained.”Agricultural Director
