“It all begins with a shift in culture” - Graham Kelly, HR Director
As World Mental Health Day 2019 commences we are taking this opportunity to hear from a few members of our team who are driving forward the cultural shift and measures being proposed for tackling poor mental health in the workplace.
As our HR Director and Mental Health First Aid Co-Ordinator Graham’s expertise and status within Thomas Johnstone Ltd will bring positive change for our workforce as he is highly regarded by all from, Apprentices to Senior Management. As an active member on the Board of Directors of the Scottish Building Federation Graham also has the presence to promote progressive change within the construction industry as a whole.
Graham is spearheading this topic with the backing of all at Thomas Johnstone Ltd and he is both passionate and committed to making a true cultural change.
Another informative afternoon with Michael Hillman, Manufacturing Manager providing some industry insight to a group of motivated youths from Tigers Ltd. These young adults came to our Head Office at Inchinnan with the aim of widening their knowledge of our Manufacturing Division and the type of apprenticeships we offer at our 30,000 sq.ft factory. As seen in the video below Michael walked the boys through the factory explaining the manufacturing process and how a product materialises from the initial drawing.
Here at TJL we are dedicated to continuously improving and empowering our people and by hosting afternoons like this we can aid the younger generation who are beginning to embark on a career in the construction industry. Many thanks to Tigers Ltd.
Reinstatement works of the historic Glasgow Golf Club are now underway with cranes deployed to safely remove the fire damaged roof structure and to stabilise the building. This marks the first stage of restoring this famous clubhouse back to its best!
This has been another exciting week for our team working on a residential project on the Isle of Bute!
Stay tuned to see the completion of this incredible project (and hopefully fewer Thomas Johnstone Ltd's vans going back and forth on the Bute ferry!)
This week marks the beginning of a new and exciting chapter for two members of the TJL team as we see David and Ruairidh successfully complete their Bench Hand Joinery Apprenticeships! David has been mentored and guided by Ross MacLeod, Workshop Manager (as seen in picture below) and Michael Hillman, Manufacturing Manager and he is very pleased to now be a fully qualified Bench Hand Joiner here at TJL. Ruairidh has also completed his apprenticeship this week and begins his next chapter as a Trainee Setter Out with Ian MacInnes, Setter Out Manager (as seen in picture below).
We wish both David and Ruairidh all the luck and success as they embark on the next step in their career!
