More carrots and less sticks
Objective: Factories find it hard to meet their clients’ requirements regarding how to discipline workers for low productivity or behaviour problems. Through this training managers and other staff were able to learn how to put in place a progressive discipline program and motivate workers more effectively to improve both their conduct and performance.
Client: Fair Labor Association
Date: March 2006 – January 2007
Place: This training was conducted in several ocassions in China, including in Shenzhen and Fuzhou.
Quote: “I really had no idea that our discipline procedure was being contra productive and that we couldn’t make the deductions we were making. I hope that workers will see the changes we are going to make and that our clients also recognise our efforts.”
