Father's Day is always a big event in the Parcelforce calendar, and we've also a fair few dads who can call their kids 'colleagues' too. We caught up with two of these Parcelforce family pairs to see how they get on both in and outside work.
Behind The Scenes
The Parcelforce Worldwide LGBT Network was set up to raise the profile of all things lesbian, gay, bi and trans in the business - whether that’s help and support at a local level or organising floats for annual Pride events around the country.
Focus and hard work saw Lincoln receiving our Golden Welcome Depot Award this year, and the East Midlands site going from strength to strength. Winning the award for seeing the most improved performance in contacting new costumers and checking parcels are well packaged, Lincoln’s 51 colleagues work hard to ensure customer service is at the forefront of their minds.
Parcelforce has spent over a decade collecting exam papers from schools and colleges, delivering them to markers across the country – on average our driver’s handle 41 million individual papers each year.
We at Parcelforce Worldwide are huge champions of equality, and are incredibly proud of how diverse our workplace is. Most of you will be aware of the superhero movie Wonder Woman – well, it got us thinking about some of our own wonder women.
Whether you’re sending a package globally or having something delivered to your door from overseas, chances are that it will go via the Import or Export team of the International Hub in Coventry, where it will be sorted and screened by our brilliant team of Parcelforce Worldwide professionals.
It’s been a busy couple of years for the Exeter team. With around 5,500 deliveries a day, which increases to nearly 9,000 during peak in the lead up to Christmas, it’s important to keep everything running smoothly.
