We are very proud to have grown the team at Latcham by ten people over the past twelve months. This is across a variety of departments to support the continued expansion of the Company, as we go from strength to strength.
As with every business, we have had to pivot quickly and adjust to the new conditions we have all found ourselves working under, but underpinning this has been a well-defined road map which we have continued to execute and is yielding results for the business.
Mike Hughes, Managing Director said “We are delighted to have been able to create new job opportunities. It is always exciting to bring new talent onboard. Not only does it help inject fresh ideas and new perspectives, but also enables individuals to learn different skills and gain experience through Latcham, so it becomes a virtuous circle. And of course, we become even more diverse as a team, which brings wider benefits too.” Mike added “We are acutely aware that other companies have not been so fortunate due to the effects of lockdown, and we feel a genuine concern for them. We have supported some local businesses and have a policy of using local skills where possible, as part of our approach to sustainability.”
Earlier in the year, Latcham announced that it is participating in the Government’s Kickstart Scheme, helping to get younger people aged between 16 and 24 years who have been among those hardest hit by the economic impact of the pandemic, into employment. So far over 120,000 jobs have been created, since the scheme started in September 2020.
And there are plans to strengthen the team even further during the course of this year, as we focus on our specialist sectors and develop our range of services and solutions in response to customer needs.
Latcham has been named as 2021 partners by MemberWise, one of the leading networks for membership professionals in the UK.
We have also been named as an approved supplier by MemberWise in the categories of marketing, print and fulfilment, and quality, reporting and measurement.
Throughout 2020, we have worked with MemberWise to deliver best practice seminars in member value and retention. We also collaborated with MemberWise to produce their Ultimate Guide, which was mailed to membership professionals throughout the UK.
MemberWise partners are “leading suppliers who have a commitment to supporting the membership sector, a strong focus on best practice, and a year-round alignment to working with the MemberWise Network.” As recognised experts within the membership sector, Latcham is proud to be recognised as an approved partner for the second year running.
Our Managing Director Mike Hughes said “We’re delighted to be recognised by MemberWise and by the wider membership community once again. Despite the challenges of 2020 for the membership organisations, we have seen the sector bearing up well, showing flexibility and adaptability to a changing environment.
We have been extremely proud of our work delivering best practice seminars and thought leadership to MemberWise’s network of 6,500 membership professionals, and we’re looking forward to continuing to work closely with them in the year ahead, helping membership organisations to address their challenges with engagement, retention and value.”
MemberWise’s Richard Gott said “‘It is great to see Latcham step up for the second year as an Official Partner. Right now it is critical for membership organisations to rise above the “online/digital noise” and effective print/fulfilment is essential for this task. Latcham have a deep understanding of the sector and this insight is helping many high profile organisations retain and recruit members. We look forward to a year of solid activity ahead”.
