Companies around the world are using FiSH Philosophy for employee engagement, Celplast Metallized Products has taken it to the next step and adopted this philosophy to their production!
Celplast’s first step was to hold a Kaizen event to determine their production standard, once the standard was communicated, custom-built live data displays were installed and when employees meet the standard on the production line, a fish will appear on the display.Visual reminder of how well they are doing!
The FiSH Philosophy has 4 concepts:
- Choose Your Attitude –Make a conscious choice and recognize the impact
- Make Their Day –Value and recognize others
- Be There –Be fully present, listen to understand
- Play– Freedom to innovate
It was very evident that the FiSH Philosophy is a very important part of Celplast’s culture.“The Think Tank” board is prominent on the production floor; their cafeteria is painted FiSH colors with reminders of the 4 concepts and periodically Celplast will clear an area of the production floor to hold a FiSH event.
Be the change you want to see in the world – don’t just wait for that change to happen!
As always, what was discussed at the SIG was much broader than what is highlighted in this blog.
A warm thank you to our speaker, James Dennett, and thank you to Bin Bhawanidin and Dante Ferrari for sharing information on the FiSH Philosophy and Celplast Metallized Products for hosting the SIG event.
