Over the last three weeks we’ve been celebrating all that we’ve achieved this year through 12 brilliant teams. These teams represent everyone in the Co-op. Thanks to every colleague who’s done their bit in what has been a memorable 2016.
Here’s a round-up of who they are:
- Legal Services team – who kickstarted 2016 with the acquisition of Collective Legal Solutions which has allowed the business to get much closer to the communities we serve.
- Pontefract Care Centre team – who’ve already sold 600 Simple pre-paid funeral plans to clients, more than double they managed last year.
- Insurance team – created a fantastic and fruitful partnership with Neighbourhood Watch, helping to keep our communities safer.
