Looking for how others address the employee motivation 7.32. and the training including awareness 7.21

Does anyone have an HR procedure or turtle/ Process map they are willing to share.

Thank you

We do following things for employee motivation:

1. Kaizen competitions
2. Suggestion scheme
3. Annual get together
4. Operator of the month awarding
5. 5'S competitions,
etc.

Its upto your organization to decide which to opt. You should try out which works for you and which not.


Thanks,
Amit

We play a game called "Quality Productivity Bingo". Company determines the problem area(s) such as: Returned Goods, Defects, Absenteeism, Safety, On Time Deliveries, even Traffic Violations, Order Entry Errors, Sales Volume, Bank Transactions can be used for a business. Employees are given serialized game cards that are laminated. You can get game cards that have Quality related terms on those cards. These terms enhance employees knowledge. The cards are used by the employee for any amount of games you play. Even switching your target, you continue with the card you was given. All employees play! When a game repeatedly fails to produce winners within the set time period for each game, you will know and employees will care as never before, that a problem must be solved before everyone can win. This is a prime opportunity to involve employees and management in communication, cooperation, and making lasting improvements. Now you have all employees with an awareness to metrics that are important to your business. You choose the ways to win or shape such as: diagonal row, letter t, or cover-all. As long as the target is met, numbers are drawn and winners start to appear. Winning for an individual or a team, brings about satisfaction PLUS a committed motivation to improve the odds of winning (employee suggestions). You see, when employees are winning, everyone wins. Product and services improve, employee morale and loyalty improves, and so does your bottom line! Quality Circles, Productivity Improvement Groups, and Management Teams can all be motivated as groups or individuals. Add employee suggestions! You can see how this game fits beautifully into the standard. If interested, I can provide many testaments as to it's effectiveness. And, it only takes a few minutes of your day to manage. Lean thinking along with FEMA risk, was used to develop this concept. Thanks!

We have a monthly roundtable - based on your birthday month - that asks the same 12 questions as our annual employee survey so we can monitor employee engagement.
We also have quarterly communication meetings to address any concerns that have arisen; monthly newsletters to keep those lines of communication open; and various employee events (Employee Appreciation days; fund raising activities).

What do you think about the payment?, will this issue could be a reason for the people not to be interested?
I heard somewhere that you get only what you pay for.
There are organizations where there are employees (workers in machines)and they dont have experience
in productivity systems, and they lack knowledge in computers in practices to fill out forms and so on, and is difficult
to get these guys involved.
What is your thinking in this issue?
Thanks

I work in an engineering/technical center rather than a production facility. But our roundtable meetings are a good way to gather a cross functional view of the organization since attendance is based on employees birthday. We set aside one hour a month to do this in person and the program we use gives each participant a remote with only 1-5 buttons to vote your level. It does not ask for department, hourly/salary, etc info and it is all anonymous. I'm not in HR, but I believe the information is valuable since it will show a trend.
