  • Most efficient operating model
    In 2009, Ferguson launched an initiative to provide 100% availability of the top 2,000 Stock Keeping Units ("SKUs") at the branch. They worked with their key vendors to get better support for stock and delivery and marginally increased inventory and delivery frequency to all branches. The initiative has now expanded to the top 3,000 SKUs, achieving almost 100% availability.

  • Best branch staff
    Wolseley UK's employee survey showed a significant improvement in the overall engagement -- from 49% in 2008 to 58% in 2010. This was particularly encouraging in view of the restructuring activities that had taken place over the previous two years in response to the downturn in the UK markets.
