Contract Win Helps The Best Connection in Hull to Blossom

The Best Connection’s Hull operation has been awarded a contract to supply temporary workers to European flower supplier, Intergreen - part of the Dutch Flower Group.

PRLog - Feb. 6, 2012 - WARWICK, U.K. -- The Best Connection’s Hull operation has been awarded a contract to supply temporary workers to European flower supplier, Intergreen - part of the Dutch Flower Group.  The workforce is required for Intergreen’s new site which is being launched in Newport, east Yorkshire, where hand-tied and belt-tied flower bouquets will be produced for a leading national supermarket chain.  The contract, which commenced at the beginning of January 2012, will initially utilise 40 temporary workers per day to undertake duties including stock intake, production of bouquets, hand-tying bouquets, labelling and packing.  This volume will increase to a peak of around 600 on Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day.  

Paul Davies, Intergreen UK Ltd, said: “As part of the tender process, we looked at many local providers and found that The Best Connection was able to meet our needs for the changing demands of the business throughout the seasons.  We found The Best Connection’s team very professional in their approach which was proactive and hands-on.”
The Best Connection, which operates 63 branches throughout the UK, supplies 12,500 temporary workers per week and services over 8,500 clients.  Job creation is focused at a local level through local branches and as a result the company has become a major recruitment conduit to local communities through job centres with a superb temporary to permanent work scheme that offers an avenue to permanent employment.  

Neil Yorke, director, The Best Connection, said: “We are delighted to have been selected by Intergreen to provide the people they need to address the dynamic and seasonal nature of this business sector.  It was a true team effort which resulted in a bespoke staffing solution.”

Intergreen’s new site will be based next to its sister company (JZ).  The company has further sites in Holbeach, Moulton and Kirton.  The Dutch Flower Group was recently awarded first place in the Hillenraad 100 (a list of 100 most prominent companies in the Dutch greenhouse horticulture sector) and was chosen as Company of the Year in Aalsmeer, Holland.
