Leading hygiene services provider phs Group has appointed a new head of human resources.
Mike Winstone joins phs as Group HR director and will champion the firm’s people agenda. The permanent role with phs for Mike follows an eight-month stint as contract director, leading the delivery of phs’ contract with the Department for Education, supplying every school and college in England with free period products.
Mike has more than 20 years’ experience in HR director roles for a range of high profile organisations, most recently for vacant property specialist VPS Group and, prior to that, for the Theo Paphitis Retail Group, HomeServe plc and Virgin Media.
He said: “If you want to provide the best customer service in any business then you have to hire the right people, train them really well and look after them. Having spent time in phs, I know we have a strong culture and a lot of great people doing a great job. I see my role as building upon this foundation; hiring more good people, expanding the phs training and apprenticeship schemes, and retaining the fantastic workforce we already have. This will help phs become an even more successful business in the years ahead.”

Following the biggest ever change to working environments, phs is well equipped to support businesses as they seek to return to their premises safely.
