Galliford Try has rolled out its scheme to boost working with its supply chain partners.
The scheme is called Advantage through Alignment and it has already been piloted in Galliford Try’s Building Southern business unit.
The aim is to boost relationships with supply chain members through better communication, better visibility of the work pipeline, greater insight into operations and improved feedback.
This is done through giving subcontractors access to areas such as the firm’s health and safety programme. Galliford Try will also provide training on building information modelling and other technologies. Contractors can take part in a Supply Chain Sustainability School and they can also access iSupplier, which provides them with more transparency about payment processes.
“As one of the UK’s top 10 main contractors we recognise that we are only as good as our supply chain partners and therefore building successful relationships with them is absolutely vital,” said Galliford Try construction and investments chief executive Bill Hocking.
“The key to this is collaboration at every step of the way and we believe allowing our supply chain to participate in our training programmes in this way will help everybody involved understand not just the processes we work to, but the values and mission that our business is pursuing.”
