Development And Training
Dan & Claire Kubler
Dan and Claire from day one of an employee starting are already setting out to develop the individual using a staff training matrix. Staff are also sent on courses outside the industry to learn from others and from other industries. This is hugely beneficial for leaning outside the racing bubble.
