How it Works
A rapidly expanding client company wanted to reduce product defects, rework, and morale issues often associated with adding new workers and promoting new frontline supervisors. Enterprise Minnesota’s talent experts led the client through a series of Training Within Industry (TWI) projects and Social Styles, a leadership and communication skills development program. TWI helped supervisors standardize essential supervisory skills, and establish a training program utilizing existing “tribal knowledge,” empowering employees to identify and solve production problems. Social Styles helped the client’s new and existing leaders increase knowledge of their own communication style and the communication style of each of their colleagues.
As a result, the client saw defect rates plummet, scrap and rework decrease, and waste was reduced or eliminated across the production process. Employee productivity and morale improved and employee turnover and absenteeism went down.
