In TS16949 Section 4.1.6 (Employee motivation, empowerment and satisfaction), is "employee satisfaction" referring to satisfaction with the quality system or overall job satisfaction? The way it reads makes me think the first option, but knowing the European emphasis on job satisfaction makes me wonder about the second. What do you all think?

Dave,

I believe this section refers to both overall employee satisfaction and driving employee awareness of the quality system.

Overall, there is a need to include all employees in the quality process which could lead to satisfaction and drive continuous improvement.

We have recently added direct and hourly employees to our TS Steering Committee as a first step in increasing awareness to our overall quality goals and expectations. By having this rotating involvement we can monitor levels of satisfaction and knowledge of the quality system.

Currently, we are using a "blind" monthly survey to begin the documentation process but are searching for some more concrete methodology.

Maybe some other contributors can post the methods they are utilizing to monitor this section.

As far as this requirement is concerned we have taken it as overall "Employess Satisfaction" which includes also the job satisfaction. The motivated employee is a must for effective implementation of the system.Once in a year an employee survey is conducted which includes Seven different parameters to obtain the views. All employees are not covered. It is done on sampling but selecting the sample size on random basis. Results are analysed and reviewd.This has helped in correcting lot of situations which were point of dissatisfaction among employees.However, labour and union matters are out of its perview. I hope it helps.

Amar,
Could I have a copy of the survey questions you use? I am helping to write our survey but am having trouble creating questions. "Seven parameters" sounds like it would cover everything.

If there is anyone else who has a survey form they like and can share, I would appreciate the information.

Thank you,
Doreen

Amar,

You mention that employees receive an annual review based on 7 objectives.

What is the basis for sampling the work force and not surveying the entire work force?

What is the criteria for selecting the employee to be surveyed and have you had any bias problems?

Is there a mechanism in place to ensure that the same employees are not surveyed over and over?

What are the measurables obtained from the surveys?

Has this methodology been accepted by your lead auditor and registrar?

Looking forward to your response!
