Find out more about what it is like to work at Morgan from some of our people.
We want to introduce you to some of our amazing people…
Our people are strong leaders
Meet Abirami, our HR Manager. She has shared with us what it is like to be a female leader here at Morgan; from the challenges to the wins.
She says that being able to strike a balance between being empathetic and pushing people for more so they can realise their potential is difficult to get right at times. As well as this, she finds that encouraging other leaders to incorporate physical and mental wellbeing of their employees within their strategy can be a challenge.
Her advice for making sure her team is motivated and focused is to “Ensure everyone is mentored and coached well. Everyone is a leader by themselves; some show more of it and some show less of it, you just need to uncover potential.”
Our people celebrate their wins
Our Thermal Ceramics team recently held their annual 'Middle East Cluster Awards'; aimed at recognising colleagues, who have been nominated by their peers, for the excellent contribution to their business. The award aides in building a positive culture & togetherness within teams.
This year three winners (and three very worthy runners up) were chosen in the following categories:
- Super Saver
- Extra Miler
Each of those awarded received an engraved award and gift, with this year made even more special through an exclusive dinner arranged with the EMEA MD too!
This is just one great example of rewarding those who help us to succeed at Morgan .
Our people inspire us
Our people are passionate about learning and developing, and Busi is no exception.
Based at our Johannesburg site, Busi has been a member of our Morgan family since 2016. Originally joining us as a temporary catering employee, alongside her canteen manager Mother, Busi has grown her role at Morgan in her years and has decided to pursue her engineering passion with her recent enrolment on an Engineering Apprenticeship.
Busi’s four-year programme, which involves several months a year of training in a local technical college, will enable her to be able to explore and travel.
Busi’s interest in engineering was sparked whilst working alongside her Mother on site, with her curiosity leading her to apply for the engineering role and ultimately becoming the catalyst in putting herself forward for the apprenticeship programme, when the opportunity arose. She has now completed Phase 2 and is working to complete Phase 3 and 4!
Her advice is to anyone thinking about an apprenticeship is “to just go for it and enjoy what you do. Do not let other people’s opinions influence your future”.
We love to see our people driving forward to develop and reach their goals, what an inspiration!
Our people build an inclusive culture
Our people are building a caring culture, cultivating a sense of belonging at Morgan. At our New Bedford site, the team have a dedicated ‘Employee Engagement Committee’, focused solely on bringing their people together.
The team are helping to spread awareness, and educate their people on ways to be better allies in their local community. One way they did this was by recognising Pride Month across their site. They assigned each department across the site a colour of the rainbow to wear in solidarity with the LGBTQIA+ community, a great activity to visually raise awareness and start a conversation on different sexualities & identities.
Emily Nash, a member of the New Bedford team has commented; “the most important things to note for content creation is getting as many employees involved - front office workers, production workers, and even SMT. We all bring such a different perspective which helps create thoughtful, exciting, and engaging events”.
Thank you to the team for keeping your people at the heart of what you do
