Jonny Monkhouse is a newly promoted production team leader from Preston who is celebrating ten years with us this month!
Jonny joined the Board24 team in November 2013, where he started as a corrugator 3 stacker operator before moving into the role of control room stacker operator for corrugator 4.
Now, in his role as Production Team Leader, he is drawing on the operator experience he has gained to guide his colleagues, maximise output, ensure safe systems of work (SSOW) are carried out, provide direction and feedback to workers during shifts, and foster and maintain a positive work environment for everybody.
Jonny is also one of our driven team leaders undertaking leadership development training with external training company, Beyond Theory. The Leadership Development Program is made up of an initial 4 modules: Leadership Styles, Managing Self, Team Building and Communication and has been incredibly well received by those who have benefitted from it so far.
Jonny commented; “The course has been very helpful, and I’ve learned a lot on how to approach people, how to delegate specific tasks, and how to manage myself more effectively.”
Judith Chadwick, Head of HR commented; “It’s great to see colleagues benefitting from the training we are providing and that it not only helps them to do their roles but also empowers them as people.”
When Jonny is not making corrugated board for customers across the North and Midlands, he likes to go to the gym, spend time with this friends and family and is a Preston North End supporter.
