Choice Talks 013 – John Whyte – Hugh Jordan & Co

We recently had the opportunity of speaking with John Whyte, National Account Manager at Hugh Jordan & Co. John Whyte discussed that some of the challenges Hugh Jordan has faced during COVID19 is managing the dynamics of reduced turnover and keeping staff motivated.  The COVID19 pandemic has caused High Jordan to do business a little differently such as working from home.. John also states that Irish customers like to meet who the are dealing with so for now everything to be done over the phone or online was a big change for the company.

John provided us with some positive advice he gives other companies: “put together a business plan, tweak it and/or stress test it first before putting it into operation once you do put it into operation to not change it then.  Good communication between staff and clients is also a key element.
