Lean/Continuous Improvement, Six Sigma and other quality and continuous improvement initiatives are increasingly being adopted by industries outside of manufacturing like healthcare. Lean concepts are founded in the Toyota Production System. Lean processes offer benefits in terms of quality, safety, productivity and cost. The core of the approach, however, is Human Development. The key to success is to change the organization’s culture to one of Continuous Improvement rather than merely using the Lean “tools” for finding and eliminating “waste” in processes. People want to make valuable contributions to the world, and the capacity to improve is limitless.
Human Resources is not always involved in these operational initiatives, but is HR missing a big opportunity? Applying Lean processes in Compensation and Human Resources functions, can free-up time to work with managers on important facilitation and employee engagement issues. Human Resources has many opportunities to streamline the many processes it undertakes.
More importantly though, HR can enhance its role and its importance to operational managers. By incorporating Lean into compensation-related tools like job documentation and design, merit increases and performance assessment, HR can help to build a Lean Culture of Continuous Improvement. The use of incentive pay or bonuses, whether short-term, long-term or spot bonuses, can dramatically capture employee attention and encourage innovative ideas.
We encourage Heads of HR, Compensation Managers and other HR professionals to attend this presentation in order to learn more about Lean/Continuous Improvement, why this is an important undertaking for HR and some examples of how an organization can begin to implement these approaches.
