RTT Group CEO’s Philosophy
What’s your secret to growing people?
We have a very strong ethos at RTT that we create the environment where our people can grow and be individually successful. And it’s not passive either; we go looking for those people who have the attitude and ability and are prepared to put in the extra effort. Very simply, if you deliver in this business, this business will in turn look after you.
What’s your secret to growing your business?
Innovate, but never forget to stick to your basics. We are constantly innovating, moving the business towards this concept we call Intelligent Logistics which has required a very big investment in forward-looking technology which is absolutely market leading. In fact in 2012 we won an international award for infrastructure design from Hewlett-Packard in Germany for the software we have developed. But I am adamant that fundamental part of our business has never changed. If you’ve got the right people, culture and attitude and you can put them together with the right technology and innovation, you’ve got a winning combination and that is what we have at RTT.
What’s your secret to motivating people?
We’ve identified within our business that we have individual high performers who want to constantly hunt and bring in business and our commission structure encourages them to do that. We believe in rewarding high performance into the future.
We also encourage individuals who have the aspiration and the talent to become leaders and sales managers of our sales teams and we work with them to design a career path – do they want to go into general management or specifically into sales management – and then send them on training to acquire the skills they need to be able to fulfil those career objectives. In this way, they are also able to add value to the business with new thinking for example on how to manage people.
