MOVE & TIL share Information Technology systems
Nov 7 2018
MOVE is continuing to align its IT team with the TIL technology group led by Glen Bublitz in New Plymouth. There is a joint TIL IT steering committee to enable better visibility between the various business units of TIL and MOVE enabling a better understanding of how they operate.
MOVE has also been assisting with the reconfiguration of the wireless networks at TIL Freight’s Foreman’s Road, Christchurch site which has been a good introduction to the workings of the TIL IT team. MOVE has successfully migrated its payroll systems onto the TIL platinum payroll system which is now managed directly from the New Plymouth based payroll team.
Lost Time Incidents decline at MOVE
It’s encouraging and rewarding as Health and Safety Manager to see the Lost Time Injury (LTI) rate on a progressive decline. A year ago, MOVE was tracking at a rate of 29.6 and now we are currently at 6.68.
This shows reported observations is allowing MOVE to make improvements which, in turn, decreases the number and severity of injuries. Observation reporting as a learning tool has huge value and is a great indication of a positive safety culture at MOVE, says the company’s Health and Safety Manager, Gary Wesborn.
“This also highlights the openness and honesty of our teams and their efforts to keep ourselves and others safe,” says Gary.
“We know the LTI target of zero is now achievable and the push to the post is usually the toughest one.”
Cold Storage Nelson new contract for Move
From the beginning of September MOVE Christchurch have had a presence in the chilled warehousing industry when it partnered with Cold Storage Nelson to provide third-party logistics services to Goodman Fielder as part of their chilled pick and pack operation.
Products involved include cheeses, meats and yoghurts destined for supermarkets, service stations, foodservice distributors and convenience stores. Winning this work improves an already strong relationship with Goodman Fielder and is MOVE’s first step into chilled warehousing.
MOVE’s saving scheme a Christmas cracker!
With a current balance of $240,000 as we head into Christmas, MOVE’s saving scheme for staff is proving to be really popular. Started three years ago, MOVE staff have the option to save a chosen amount in their pay each week / fortnight. The savings are automatically deducted, managed and reconciled monthly, then paid out in December to assist with the extra expenses that the holiday season brings. 2018 has had a whopping 110 employees take part, who will all receive their share, plus a little interest, in a few weeks’ time. The Savings Scheme is a great initiative and something that is really valued by the team at MOVE.
