Over the past few months CGM Group has been working closely with the business students from Downham Market Sixth Form. Our Human Resources Manager, Maryanne Pearce, was approached by the Sixth Form to ask if she would lend some time to give the students an insight of how HR works in the day to day business environment.
Maryanne carried out a series of talks to various different student groups covering a wide range of topics including daily HR duties, how HR works within our company and ways to embark on a career in HR. As well as this she gave the students a personal perspective of the highlights and challenges of a career in HR.
We have received some fantastic comments about the talks from both the students and teachers at Downham Market Sixth Form, including the following comments from Trudi Jones, Business Studies KS5 Leader:
“I just wanted to let you know how much we have appreciated the time Maryanne has given to our department over the last few weeks. She has met with some of our sixth form business groups and has given them an invaluable insight into current issues in HR today in the real business environment.
All our students commented on her knowledge and obvious experience as well as her warm and friendly personality.
I wanted to formally thank CGM for all your support and to say we have enjoyed working with your staff and hope that we may be able to do so again in the future.”
Over the past few months some of our other Managers have also carried out various talks at the Sixth Form regarding Business Development and Marketing.
Here at CGM Group we appreciate and understand the value of the HR, Marketing and Development teams and we are delighted that our Managers are working with the next generation to share their wealth of knowledge and experience, helping to shape the future of our business.
