Ian has worked in the service sector for 30 years on both the supply and client side and has had a range of 'moving' experiences. These include relocating Reuters from their ancestral home in Fleet Street and into Canary Wharf, moving Coronation Street from the centre of Manchester into a purpose built filming Lot in Trafford and has recently closed the iconic ITV Studios building on the Southbank, moving ITV into three newly fitted out buildings.
Ian came to ITV in 2010 and turned the focus of the internal Workplace group and service providers to adding value and making work an experience, rather than just providing a service. The combined mantra has evolved from 'how can we help you?' to 'we can help you!' as a reflection of the more proactive approach that is need in todays Workplace. The whole team, in giving staff a place they are proud to work in and making easy to work there, has contributed to making ITV's employee engagement scores become the envy of many of the FTSE100 companies.
