Client Challenges

You can’t afford a pay rate increase, but are open to a self-funding incentive plan.

Productivity is flat and the only improvements that ever get implemented are management-driven.

The organization is looking to reward employees for success in its process improvement initiatives (Six Sigma, Lean, Kaizen, etc.).

You are challenged by mandated customer concessions and need to enlist employees in cost reduction efforts.

Process improvements are coming from the same people year-after-year and you need to get broader participation in your improvement efforts.

Employees are becoming fed up with management's lack of interest in their ideas for improvement and are seeking a union solution.

Gainsharing Advantage
