On the agenda was company culture, 2019 performance review, company rules and boundaries, quality control, health and safety & environmental topics, business development and also the companies aims and ambitions for 2020.
During the seminar, the workforce took part in numerous planned activities. We wanted their opinion on how they thought the company performs at critical topics like health and safety and also their overall opinion of how management performs and if they had any ideas that could help improve the company further. Improvement suggestions were widely encouraged. Some of the comments received have already proven to be effective and insightful.
