Is your culture right for continuous improvement?
Are your employees involved?
Is it easy to recommend continuous improvement ideas?
If not, consider this:
Have employees write down their ideas on a piece of paper and submit them to their supervisor. Supervisor and employee implement the suggestion. No more paperwork. Recognize the employee’s suggestion and improvement in an employee newsletter.
Have a monthly pizza party with all those that recommended improvement suggestions.
Provide a small token to this team for recognition.
Small improvements add up!
