Hello, As I write we are in the midst of a ‘Pingdemic’, the supermarket shelves are starting to look a little threadbare and the dreaded lurgy is determined to spoil our holiday plans. Happily, hire businesses and manufacturers are seemingly flat out – notwithstanding logistical headaches in a few instances, I haven’t spoken to a single person who wasn’t run off their feet fulfilling orders that were coming in thickly and quickly. Back to this edition, and we lead with major news about the return of Executive Hire Roadshows and the latest developments for EHS 2022. Features-wise, we take a look at ladder safety testing, we delve into the world of digital training and the leaders of national hire companies air their views in the first of a two-part feature. There’s a lot more besides, so let’s get right to it…
