My grandfather used to tell me stories of the ‘old’ HMG, when we received our raw material deliveries via horse and cart, took orders via telegram and made deliveries using the HMG company bicycle. HMG is a very different business than it was in the 1930s, with different machines, people and customers but the family culture and guiding principles of decent, worthwhile and secure remain the same. Generations of families have worked through HMG and grown up together passing on their knowledge, expertise and passion to future generations. When we see grandfathers and grandmothers, fathers, sons, mothers and daughters all working through HMG together and encouraging the next generation to follow this is a good indicator that we are getting culture right. My talk is about how this culture was formed, why its important and how we keep it strong in a changing and developing world.
