International Women’s Day at Frank’s The Flooring Store

It’s International Women’s Day 2024 today, and Frank-ly, we wanted to big up some of the brilliant women that make working here at Frank’s The Flooring Store so special. So, we asked Sam, Beck and Jen what they enjoy about being part of the Frank’s team and what they invest in women means to them.

Sam Turnbull, People Business Partner at Frank's The Flooring Store

Sam, People Business Partner

Sam is the heart of our organisation, keeping us right, checking the ps and qs and making sure everyone who works at Frank’s has fun and feels special. “One of the many ways Frank’s The Flooring Store invest in me, is giving me time to take part in an external mentoring programme. I get exposure to new perspectives and different ways of working. This helps me grow knowledge and confidence and means I bring back new ideas to Frank’s The Flooring Store – like our “Start the Day Right” scheme: Out staff start their day at 9:30 to give them time to take the kids to school, walk to dog, or stay healthy at the gym. It’s just one of the ways that Frank’s the Flooring Store’s investment in my development has paid off for the business.”

Beck, Assistant Management Accountant at Frank's The Flooring Store

Beck, Assistant Management Accountant

Beck has been with Frank’s The Flooring Store for five years and now she’s recruited and trained her own team, she’s being promoted into a new planning and reporting role starting next month. “Frank’s really invests not just in women, but all of our people, they are paying for me to qualify as a chartered accountant, and I get regular monthly mentoring from our Financial Director to help me develop my management skills. Frank’s supports you in pretty much anything you want to progress with and working here has really built my confidence.”

Jen, Sales Assistant at Frank's The Flooring Store

Jen, Sales Assistant

Jen works on the shop floor and came from a famous name posh clothing retailer, but LOVES the family feel at Frank’s. She’s been with us for 7 years and recently came back to work after having her little lad. “ Frank’s has invested in me by adapting my hours to suit my new family circumstances after I had my baby. By being flexible around what I need right now, I feel like they’ve invested in my success as a new mum and shown me that I matter and I’m important to the future of the business.”

Frank’s the Flooring Store continues to invest in women, because these three and many more like them, make a massive difference to the experience of customers shopping in store, to all of us in the team and most of all, to the success of our business. Happy International Women’s Day!
