Improving Operations through Effective Employee Engagement
4aBetterBusiness announced the release today of a joint case study with iGrafx® on how a multi-location metal products manufacturer developed effective employee engagement and in months achieved a 6% productivity gain with existing resources.
Evanston, IL — July 24, 2012 — 4aBetterBusiness (www.4abetterbusiness.com)
"The case study identifies a path for not only achieving employee engagement and contribution,"
4aBetterBusiness, working on a collaborative basis with company employees, leveraged the iGrafx solution for process management and visual process documentation. Within a few months, the Metal Processing Company achieved a 6% gain in core operations productivity, a 90% reduction in non-conformances to a key customer, and improved ability to identify and adopt or adapt best practices among locations. The case study is available at: http://www.4abetterbusiness.com/
The Division Manager of the largest division of the company, which for competitive reasons declined to be named, said, “Trust with employees was built as an integral part of the effort. Employees engaged and participated because they could see results quickly and recognize that they were part of the solution. We developed a significantly higher capability to identify and implement needed changes, improving productivity, reducing core operating costs and increasing profitability.”
“The method 4aBetterBusiness employs to initiate and leverage employee engagement, supported by the iGrafx business process management toolset, drives forward highly effective and sustainable process improvement,”
