Commercial Training

Root2Lean was formed to deliver commercial training and its very first programme was for a team of Tarmac Supervisors, from this programme over 5 years ago we have retained two of our most important clients. This is just one example of clients who take our services with them when they move onto pastures new, one of these key clients has utilised our services at every business he has worked within since. This partnership is an example of our vision "To be our Customer's Lifelong 1st Choice"
