Have you ever wondered how much it costs each time an employee takes an unnecessary step?
If you haven't done so, then you should because its costing you a FORTUNE!
Imagine if it costs £1/$1 each time someone takes an unnecessary step away from their desk to find a pen, or a hole punch, or to refill their stapler, with the employee doing this on average four times a day. Each time they do this it takes TEN unnecessary steps, it means the cost in lost productivity would equate to £40/$40 per day.
If an employee works 240 days per year and moves away from their desk 4 times per day, walking 10 steps each time would mean a cost to the company of £9600/$9600 per year (thats a lot of cash)!
Now what if four employees did this... £38,400/$38,400 per year...You could probably hire another staff member for that.
There is no wonder MOTION is one of the eight deadly wastes. You can help reduce motion by purchasing Kaizen foam and stop the struggle!
Imagine IF your ENTIRE workforce 'Fixed What Bugged Them', EVERYDAY in EVERY process/task that they completed. What would that mean to your company and your people?
We believe that every company should 'GROW its people', because the possibilities are endless. Over ten years ago we embarked on a company journey, to continuously improve our working environment, our customers experience and most importantly enhance our working life to create a team of caring.
We've had highs and lows, with Lean thinking truly opening the doors to experiences we never thought possible.
If you only read one book this year, make sure its this one!
2 Second Lean has helped hundreds of companies across the globe and brought together a community of people all fixing what bugs them
By FAR the best part of our Lean journey has been the chance to help others implement their Lean thinking culture.
Through our journey we have had the privilege of meeting and being mentored by some of the most mind blowing people and as our way of 'paying it forward', we offer free tours to companies who have just started their Lean journey.
