    1) Get Everyone Involved

    First and foremost, get everyone involved! It's crucial that everyone is "rowing in the same direction" to build a culture of excellence. Your organization should empower, energize, and enable everyone, not just a chosen few. Detractors who feel left behind can infect others with negativity, so it's important to remove employees who aren't willing to participate and elevate themselves.

    2) Reward Innovation & Collaboratio

    Reward innovation and collaboration! Encourage employees to share ideas and experiment with new approaches. Recognizing and rewarding employees for their hard work and achievements can help boost morale and increase engagement. Encourage cross-functional collaboration and teamwork to build a sense of community and make employees feel more connected to each other and the organization.

    3) Clearly Define and Communicate Rolesand Objectives

    Clearly define and communicate roles and objectives. Clear and consistent communication is key to building a culture of excellence and engagement. Ensure that employees are kept informed about the organization's goals, challenges, and progress. A clear sense of purpose can help employees feel more connected to the organization's mission and understand how their work contributes to it.

    4) Get onto “The Floor” and Lead by Example

    Leaders should model the behaviors they want to see in their employees, including a commitment to excellence, a positive attitude, and a willingness to learn and grow. The hardest part of implementing a culture of engagement is simply finding time to do it. Leaders must prioritize engaging with frontline staff to make a real positive impact on the company.

    5) Invest in Skills Development & Safety

    Invest in skills development! Providing opportunities for training and development, both technical and non-technical, can help employees build their skills and feel more valued. Investing in employee skills and training can also have numerous other benefits for manufacturing organizations, including increased employee engagement, motivation, retention, productivity, and quality.

    Why is a Culture of Excellence important?

    Industrial automation has revolutionized the manufacturing industry, but too much dependence on it can create disengaged employees. Building a Culture of Excellence can help to mitigate this issue.

    Firstly, it's important to recognize that continuous improvement is essential to maintaining competitiveness and profitability in the manufacturing industry. In order to achieve this, a company needs to constantly look for ways to improve processes, products, and services. This requires additional work and a Culture of Excellence is required to drive continuous improvement.

    Building a Culture of Excellence means creating an environment where employees are engaged, motivated, and committed to achieving the company's goals. When employees are engaged, they are more likely to be invested in the success of the company and willing to put in the extra effort required to drive continuous improvement. They will be more likely to identify areas for improvement and contribute innovation that can help the company stay ahead of the competition.

    In addition, a Culture of Excellence can help to foster a sense of pride and ownership in the work that employees do. When employees feel that their work is valued and that they are contributing to the success of the company, they are more likely to be satisfied with their jobs and to remain loyal to the company.

    Finally, building a Culture of Excellence can also help to attract and retain top talent. In a competitive industry like manufacturing, having a reputation for excellence can help to differentiate a company from its competitors and make it more attractive to potential employees.

    Too much dependence on AI and Industry 4.0 industrial automation can also ostracize employees and destroy your culture. (Learn more about our take on Human Intelligence at

    • Energize your staff with personal goal tracking, gamification and automated reward points that they can redeem in your personalized rewards marketplace. Broadcast result KPIs and celebrate wins to keep staff engaged.
