REPRESENTATIVES from some of the world’s largest companies have visited the area to find out how a local workforce has helped Diageo become a global leader.
The AMIS masterclass saw senior management members from the likes of Warburtons, Kraft Foods, Astra Zeneca, Kerry Foods, Mars, Heineken and William Grant visit the Windygates site.
The Diageo team outlined the various projects it has in place to help staff continuously improve themselves and develop as a workforce.
The delegates hoped to benefit from Diageo’s knowledge and to discuss ideas for further operational improvement applicable to their own companies.
The event was aimed at senior level operational and engineering managers – some of whom had to battle against the recent ash cloud to reach Fife.
A Diageo spokesman told the Mail: “Our commitment to our people is that Diageo is a place where they can realise their potential and achieve their aspirations – we create the conditions for their success, through people empowerment.
“Furthermore we believe there is a direct link between high levels of employee engagement and great business performance.
“This is what we have shown today to our colleagues in other industries.”
