Midlands Enterprise Awards 2022

24 | Midlands Enterprise Awards 2022 lead by example. OMS’ culture is centred around the fundamental element of respect. Everyone within the company is valued, supported, and treated with compassion. In addition, OMS prioritises investing in its team through ongoing training and mentoring and having regular meetings to keep everyone informed about the business activities and performance. The team has played a key role in the company’s success and has enabled OMS to navigate multiple challenges over the past 24 years. Most recently, the Covid-19 pandemic brought several issues to the surface. Clive notes, ‘the pandemic brought with it many challenges for training and consultancy businesses. We were one of the first training businesses to gain approval through the training awarding bodies to deliver virtual training using Teams and Zoom. This allowed us to continue to deliver training to our customers. As part of our offering, we still deliver virtual as well as face-toface training.’ Yet as many businesses deal with the aftermath, OMS has bounced back, with its trading levels surpassing pre-pandemic levels. This is, in part, due to the fact that many businesses are struggling with recruitment and are choosing to invest in and prioritise staff retention. Consequently, there has been a shift towards training, and OMS has seen an increase in demand for the NEBOSH Certificate and Diploma courses. Will this trend continue going forward? Possibly – but one thing is for certain, the company plans to continue growing at an impressive rate. ‘Our aspirations for the future are to continue to grow the business by consistently satisfying and retaining our customers and to build on being a one stop shop for compliance training and consultancy,’ Clive concludes.
