TRUTURN BAGS THE FIRST GOLD OF THE SUMMER
Investors in People practionier Dave Pegler added:
I would like to congratulate everyone at Truturn on this well-earned and well deserved accolade.
To have achieved IIP Gold Accreditation is a testament to the strength of business practices and the maturity of the people management culture.The maturity of the culture is reflected in the online assessment feedback that has resulted in Truturn being ahead of the manufacturing sector benchmark in all 9 IIP indicators.
It is my strong belief that both business practices and cultural maturity has been strengthened considerably since Truturn’s first IIP assessment in June 2013.
I have no doubt that embracing the Fit4 Nuclear improvement programme and achieving ultimate certification has been a valuable catalyst in achievement of the improvements outlined in this report. Through Fit4Nuclear, Truturn has clearly benefited from the input of a range external business support.
This has ranged from strengthened business and strategic planning, and the wider use of business metrics through to the introduction of lean methodology on the shop floor. The use of lean techniques has been fully embraced by people and inconjunction with the Team Leader Programme the shop floor has been visually transformed,and quantifiable benefits have been accrued in for example efficiency and cost of quality.
It was apparent from the interviews that everyone has a passion for what they are trying toachieve and people are focused and motivated in realising Truturn’s business objectives and KPIs. Working in partnership with customers and satisfying their needs and expectations areput at the heart of practice and KPIs, and there is a genuine focus and culture in achieving the highest levels of quality, customer service and on time delivery. All of these factors are seen as critical in retaining and growing existing customers.
In meeting the company’s long term objectives, the challenge for Truturn’s managers is to acquire new customers and grow profitable sales in a very competitive market place. It was good to hear about the new marketing and sales strategies and approaches, and how external business support is facilitating this key objective area. Clearly the Fit4Nuclear certification and internal efficiency and cost reduction gains will support the achievement of successful customer proposals.
Effective implementation of recommendations support development across more than one IIP Indicator. In addition to securing business benefits and cultural improvement I would expect implementation of recommendations to support Truturn to progress to ‘high performing’ IIP performance level. The latter is the aspiration identified in the Truturn ‘To-be’ position identified before the IIP assessment. There is no doubt in my mind that Truturn can face the future with confidence and from abase of strong leadership, focused managers and a skilled, flexible and motivated staff team. I am convinced that this combination will prove to be a formidable team in taking Truturn forward to the next stage of its growth and as a result a new manufacturing plant.
