The refurbishment of our head office ‘Arrow House’ has proved to be a hit among staff and visitors since its completion in May 2019.

The new space has helped to accommodate our ever growing team and provided an innovative show room to demonstrate our products to customers.

The photos below show some key elements of this new space, including a large extended staff kitchen, more meeting spaces and product demonstration areas.

 

 

This refurbishment was part funded by the European Development Fund.

We are delighted to announce that Arrow has won the Small Business Award at The NHS in the Midlands Excellence in Supply Awards 2019!

 

The NHS in the Midlands Excellence in Supply Awards 2019 promotes and celebrates private sector organisations working in partnership with the NHS to deliver high quality,

effective and efficient patient care; helping the health service to do more for less.

 

The NHS are important partners to Arrow and we look forward to driving more product solutions and innovations to improve efficiencies for our healthcare service.

 

 

 

 

IIP is a world-recognised standard that reflects the best in people management excellence and is underpinned by assessment around 3 key indicators –  Leading (clarity of vision, purpose and inspiring employees to perform), Supporting (how jobs are designed, reward and recognition and performance management) and Improving (how capabilities are developed, and resources, plans and innovation to achieve the company’s objectives)

This achievement follows many hours of preparation by staff and managers across all teams and departments in the business, an in-depth assessment from an independent reviewing body including confidential interviews with a large number of staff from all departments, an online survey which was open to all staff to complete and other observations by the independent assessor.

The IIP assessor noted “everyone interviewed agrees their roles are designed to encourage and enable them to collaborate and work as a team. Formal and informal networks are in place including the Colleague Circle health and safety and CSR working groups.”

“Virtually everyone surveyed (98%) agreed the company has a plan for the future, the same proportion (98%) agrees the company is a great place to work. Everyone interviewed enjoys working at Arrow, many feeling it’s the best place they’ve ever worked.”

 

Only 17% of organisations currently hold the Gold standard so this is a fantastic accolade for Arrow County Supplies. This shows just how motivated and committed our team are, and how dedicated we are as an organisation to making the Arrow team the A-Team!

 

Arrow County Supplies are proud to announce that we have received our certificate for ISO 45001 – Occupational Health and Safety Management systems.

ISO 45001 is a new standard that aims to reduce the burden of occupational injuries and diseases which is significant across the globe, resulting in losses from early retirement, staff absence and rising insurance premiums. The standard provides a framework to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions, all over the world.
