Sustainable productivity improvements are hard to achieve. And yet we do it for our utility clients
We have improved productivity by 30% whilst reducing budget overruns.
We ensure a safe working environment that delivers best in class line changes, whilst minimising downtime.
How do we do this?
By focusing on the people.
Ensuring everyone understands the systems, processes and control and why they exist. As we work together with the people doing the work we uncover processes that are not required or can be fixed to save lost time. Simple fixes costing a few pounds can save minutes here and there saving thousands of pounds over the year. Fixing the frustrations of the people means more engagement from the team and a better work culture.
We design, implement and accelerate operational and digital transformation through people. We partner with organizations to solve strategically important problems that impede top-line growth or bottom-line results.This allows us to create new capabilities and harness the power of your people to build an engaged culture, turbocharge leadership behaviors, and implement improved operating models.Through collaboration with your front-line supervision, your middle management, and your senior executives, we fully implement solutions that transform your operations - the way you and your people do business.
We needed best practices disseminated quickly and effectively across our network, so we could be much more responsive to our customers’ needs.
What is even more valuable is that we see this effort as something beyond a one-time infusion of new ideas and practices. Everywhere in our production and distribution plants, in each of the task forces and subgroups, planning is underway to move beyond completion to ensure the sustainability of all we’ve done so far.
This project has left behind empowered employees at all levels of the business. The success we have achieved has become addictive to many and will keep driving us towards the culture of continuous improvement.
Just a short note with a big thanks for what you and your team helped us achieve this year... Proudfoot and our plants built a great relationship right from the start. Your team was outstanding.
