Tandehill Can Help If...
The organization is looking to reward employees for success in its process improvement initiatives (Six Sigma, Lean, Kaizen, etc.).
Process improvements are coming from the same people year-after-year and you need to get broader participation in your improvement efforts.
The organization is seeking higher levels of empowerment/employee involvement.
You are challenged by mandated customer concessions and need to enlist employees in cost reduction efforts.
Employees are becoming fed up with management's lack of interest in their ideas for improvement and are seeking a union solution.
Productivity is flat and the only improvements that ever get implemented are management-driven.
“A study of 663 organizations demonstrated that gainsharing generated $2,200 in unbudgeted gains per employee per year.”
