The team at Audit Nationwide have signed up to take part in cupcake day, which will be held on the 14th of June this year.

It is a day dedicated to defeating dementia, with the help of the small but mighty cupcake, we will be fundraising to beat dementia and raise awareness for the Alzheimer’s Society.

Today, the team at Head Office took part in our second annual Douglas Stafford Bake Off!


5 contestants are battling it out to be crowned the winner of 2017. The cakes vary widely in style, flavour and texture – from a mint aero cake, marmalade cake, glazed raspberry buns, skittle surprise and a caramel and coconut rafaelo cake. Our team of judges certainly have their work cut out!


Whilst our judges are currently still in deliberation, the bakers kindly donated the rest of the cakes to be sold off in a charity bake sale, to raise money for our chosen charities of 2017 – Portsmouth Hospitals and Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance.

Shop floors are a fast-paced and ever changing environment to work in.

Before opening your doors the store is in perfect condition with all stock in the right place and facing the same way. Everything is clean and tidy……until you open the door. Within 5 minutes your store will have a completely different feel.

Regular ‘floor walks’ are a necessity for any shift manager to spot any housekeeping standards before the customer does. However other tasks can sometimes get in the way. The till might need more change, a customer might want to speak to them and staff may have called in sick.

Customers are quite often a fresh pair of eyes in your store and can easily spot any housekeeping or poor standards before anyone else.

Regular stop floor audits will improve shop floor standards and housekeeping. Our auditors can check:

  • Displays
  • Price points and POS
  • Cleanliness
  • Store Layout

Our consultants can work with you to create a bespoke auditing programme to ensure that your stores are customer friendly and to a high standard. With regular auditing, you will see detailed insight into the changes on your shop floor and identify areas of improvement.
