Company meetings can be incredibly productive and an ample opportunity for teams to come together to plan strategy, organise events or set goals and objectives. However, they can also be the source of great unproductivity and used as an opportunity for staff to catch up on what they watched on T.V. the night before or have shallow discussions about the same old subjects.
At Lane End, we pride ourselves on providing high quality facilities with matching service. Throughout 2018, we surveyed a number of our customers to recieve feedback on things like customer service, quality of facilities and whether or not customers would recommend us to a colleague. We are incredibly proud of the results and and feel they reflect just how far Lane End has developed in the last year...
