Growth for the Desktop Engineering Team

Lockdown & tier restrictions have had one positive effect on Laird insofar as we’ve seen an increasing number of clients taking advantage of the various digital ways of providing automotive reports & other solutions.  The most obvious is the desktop report; whilst working & effective since the early Nineties, it’s taken a while for the most traditional firms to adapt.

As a result of this, we’ve seen an increasing in firms wanting to take advantage of our technology, which in turn has allowed us to buck the trend and continue to grow our desktop engineer team.

MD Nik Ellis said

When the first lockdown hit, our instructions fell dramatically, but as clients saw the benefits of digital methods & remote inspections, we’ve seen a gradual increase. I’m delighted that we’ve grow to the point of bringing in more staff to help. We’ve gone from a position of it being a challenge to find good employees, to having a wealth of people who have unfortunately been made redundant or even seen their previous firms go under. Sarah & Chris represent the best available staff & we’re all looking forward to seeing them integrate into our team & develop with Laird.
