(OSHKOSH, Wis.)—A manufacturing company lowered its safety incident rate from 2.57% to 1.42% by building a culture of safety, using a combination of audits, monthly training, praise and other workplace safety tips.
The summer issue of amplify, a digital magazine from promotional products retailer 4imprint®, shares Wilsonart’s holistic efforts to engage employees in the company’s safety focus. Their approach is borne out in other research. In one study, the top 25% of engaged workplaces had 70% fewer safety incidents than companies who scored lowest for employee engagement.
“Creating a culture of positivity, where employees are encouraged to share new ideas, reaps rewards across the organization,” said Kevin Lyons-Tarr, CEO, 4imprint. “From safety to customer service and innovation, positivity leads to engagement, which produces all sorts of positive rewards.”
The Summer 2019 issue of amplify also explores innovative approaches in:
- Alumni engagement—The University of Kentucky Alumni Association and the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma (USAO) Alumni Association are connecting alumni, students and businesses in creative new ways.
- Veteran connections—Odyssey Technical Solutions and National Veterans Wheelchair Games are using online and in-person methods and giveaways to connect with veterans.
- Merger branding—Accord Financial used a distinct custom logo and a tumbler to celebrate their merger with CapX Partners.
