We helped WineWorks upskill their warehouse team leaders.

eCampus NZ teamed up with WineWorks, to deliver the New Zealand Certificate in Business (First Line Management) (Level 4) to five of their warehouse team leaders. Completing the First Line Management Certificate gave these leaders new levels of confidence and self-belief.

“The team are looking at things through a different light and making improvements as they go. We can’t put a price tag on the development that they have had. They are now developing people down their line just because of this experience” – Warrick De Waal, Warehouse Manager at WineWorks.
