FIX AUTO UK’S REGIONAL OPERATIONS TEAM LEAD THE WAY WITH GDPR AS ITS INTRODUCTION DEADLINE APPROACHES
With the May 25th deadline for the new General Data Protection Regulation fast approaching, Fix Auto UK’s Regional Operations Team are leading by example after successfully studying to become the network’s first “GDPR Champions”.
Guided by Fix Auto UK’s dedicated compliance department, the six-strong team whose role it is to help, guide and support franchisees across the country, have successfully completed a programme of online training courses to ensure they are fully informed.
Lead by Head of Operations Michael McLaren, the team consisting of Brett Wootton, Gary Snook, Martin Willis, Simon Nash and its most recent recruit Neil Reader have each completed the much-needed Employee, Foundation and Practitioner courses provided by the network’s award-winning Fix Auto Online Learning Platform. In doing so, the team have each gained ‘Certificates in Continuing Professional Development (CPD)’ in GDPR.
In addition, every team member working at Fix Auto UK’s head office in Leicester has also completed the employee level of the qualifications.
Michael said: “GDPR and the protection of personal data is arguably the most important subject in the industry currently. Fix Auto UK set its stall out some time ago to ensure we will be providing industry-leading training and guidance to our franchisees. The Regional Operations Team is leading by example, particularly as we are ahead of the game.”
Further highlighting the strength of the network’s Regional Operations Team, new and seasoned Fix Auto franchisees are able to call upon more than 185 years of experience - the cumulative number clocked up by the six-strong group.
Michael added: “With the exception of Martin, who has served the industry for 21 years, during which time he was named as Bodyshop Magazine’s Bodyshop Manager of the Year, we have all chalked up well over 30 years apiece which is some going.
“We work closely together and share that experience directly to our franchisees to enable us to help and support their needs and drive them forward to industry leading results.”
