After we did the 5S-program, our productivity went up with more than 30% and the workplace turned to be more safe (the amount of unsafe situations and unsafe conditions went down to almost zero). That really showed what we could do when working in a well-organized, efficient, safe Investing in this 5S program has been great, it has made a large difference for us.
It has been a relatively small investment with a very short repayment period.
Working with the 5S company has been very exciting and educational, overall great.and clean warehouse.
The program gave me a lot of new motivation and energy, and during the process we had a lot of fun.
We changed focus and processes and we were introduced to daily morning stand up meetings. That freed both time and resources what we now can use on handling even more goods, and at the same time develop the department even further.
It was also exciting to see the interest and curiosity from colleagues working in other departments…… thinking; ” we really should do the same in our department”.
