Congratulations John Watson - MHFA

Lucy Duggins  17 July 2020 10:15:07
Congratulations to John Watson (Autoclenz SHEQ Manager) who recently attended an Adult MHFA course and is now the first Autoclenz Mental Health First Aider.

During the two-day course, John got a deep understanding of what mental health is and what factors can affect wellbeing. He also learnt new skills to spot the signs of mental illness and gain the confidence to step in and support a person who needs assistance.

For many of us, the easing of lockdown brings longed-for opportunities (even if at a social distance) – to see friends, play sports, resume contact with family in ‘real space’ or get back to work that we value.

But for many of us, even the happy, much anticipated changes can be difficult for our mental health, therefore, over the coming months, we will continue to focus on the emotional wellbeing of our colleagues and friends within the industry.

For tips on looking after your own mental health as we come out of lockdown or general tips on how to protect and sustain good mental health, visit www.mentalhealth.org.uk.

SHE&Q Manager, John Watson, said “We’re thrilled to have maintained the ISO 14001 industry standard that outlines the requirements needed for Environmental Management Systems. This demonstrates our drive to constantly improve our environmental performance and the certification is a testament to the considerable investment to control and reduce the environmental impact of activities throughout all Divisions of Autoclenz’.

Do You Want Cheap Valeting? Be Careful What You Wish For!

Do You Want Cheap Valeting? Be Careful What You Wish For!
At Autoclenz we believe you can have good valeting and you can have cheap valeting, but you can’t have both. With over 50 years’ valeting and cosmetic repair experience servicing the motor industry, Autoclenz excels in making your systems more efficient - and your life easier. By joining many of our services together we have made doing business with us simpler, smoother and more cost effective.

It is great to have cheap prices but if this results in no valeters turning up on site, non-existent account management or support, what are you actually paying for? Even worse, it could even cost you in lost vehicle sales.

Autoclenz is sure your organisation is compliant with the National Living Wage and the Modern Slavery Act. But what about your sub-contractors? In these days of corporate governance and corporate social responsibilities, it is your responsibility to make sure your suppliers also comply, if the valeting price is too cheap then you should be suspicious as your valeters may be not compliant.

Effective Cost-control

With our specialist operational coverage, we create efficient workflows with transparent financial control. The Autoclenz PVMS (Paperless Vehicle Management System) is the ultimate tool in controlling the movement of your stock through the valet, preparation and imaging process whilst controlling the spend. PVMS is live, showing jobs awaiting, progressing and completed through the valet bay.

Working with our wide-ranging client list, we have been able to implement efficient systems to give you more cost visibility and to make your life simpler. By joining our services together, we have made the vehicle preparation process simpler, quicker and more cost effective.

UK and European Anti-Slavery Day

Lucy Duggins  18 October 2019 11:25:05
Today is UK and European Anti-Slavery Day - an annual day to raise awareness of all forms of modern slavery and the need to eradicate them from our society.

Autoclenz is absolutely committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in its corporate activities and one key step in this process is ensuring that all Management are equipped with the tools to recognise a potential incident of modern slavery and know how to deal with it. In July, Autoclenz Management attended Stronger Together workshops to develop their skills in identifying and handling suspected cases of #modernslavery within its business and within the automotive industry.

Image: UK and European Anti-Slavery Day

Autoclenz are taking action to understand all potential risks in relation to Modern Slavery and its business and to put in place steps that are aimed at ensuring that no slavery or human trafficking is present in its own business or that of its supply chains. What many businesses don’t realise is that they are liable for all people working on their premises (even the sub-contractors). Consider the reputational impact and ability to do business effectively and consider the moral responsibility against modern day slavery. What is the cost to your business of not being compliant?

Image:Breakout For Ben

 For many years TrustFord has partnered with the Ben Automotive Industry Charity (ben.org.uk). This is a small but amazing organisation who, for over 100 years have helped and supported those in the industry at times of financial and emotional need. Due to the success of 2018, the TrustFord Chairman & CEO has challenged teams across the country to participate in Breakout for Ben 2019, to see how far they can travel in 25 hours, while raising funds for Ben. As a group they hope to break their fundraising efforts from 2018 and raise a breakthrough amount, so please give what you can to this amazing charity.

Good Luck Team Runaway Runaways!

Can You spot The Signs Of Mental Ill Health

Lucy Duggins  10 October 2019 10:52:07
 World Mental Health Week

World Mental Health Day is observed on 10th October every year, with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilising efforts in support of mental health. The Day provided an opportunity for all stakeholders working on mental health issues to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide.

Roughly one in four of the people you will see at work today will struggle with mental health this year.

Despite this, many believe it doesn’t affect anyone they know - but our colleagues and friends at work aren’t immune! We want to change how Autoclenz thinks and talks about mental health in the workplace. We all have a role to play and your attitude to mental health could change a colleague’s life.

Effective cost-control is vital to maintain dealer margins

Effective cost-control is vital to maintain dealer margins

With new car registrations dropping, dealership running costs must be reduced to preserve margins.

Image:Effective cost-control is vital to maintain dealer margins

Here at Autoclenz we recognise this and have invested in unique technology to allow you to track your valeting and vehicle preparation costs down to the minutest detail.

Our Paperless Vehicle Management System (PVMS) delivers this. You can control duplicate valets and configure sign-off by managers for “exceptional” valets. Then you can view weekly exceptions reports before any invoice is raised. Early signs suggest this can save up to 3% of annual spend.

It’s time to see more detail in your valeting costs!

Find out about the award-winning difference at Autoclenz and why we are the preferred supplier to 8 of the AM Top 10 Dealer Groups.
