Using Employee Engagement to Build a Center of Operational Excellence

August 25, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Operational excellence is about more than tools, data, analytics and budgets; it includes the human element – the workers – and the practices and procedures they use every day in the workplace. From asset management to control of work for confined spaces to documented and accessible procedures, process excellence must live in what every worker does every moment of every day.

With different workflows, new technologies and our ongoing recovery from a global pandemic, today’s workplace environment is radically different than it was 10 years ago or even two years ago. Employees can make or break your organizational culture. If you engage them in your efforts, you’ll be well on your way to reducing injuries, eliminating risk and embracing operational excellence.

Join Sam Smolik, author of the new book The Power of Goal Zero, and Scott Gaddis, VP and Global Leader of Health & Safety for Intelex Technologies, as they share how effective leadership, motivated teams, an energizing culture, an effective management system and well-maintained assets all contribute to operational excellence. Attendees at this webinar will:

  • Get a proven roadmap for demonstrating strong leadership and motivating teams
  • How to create a culture of operational excellence
  • Tools and tips to drive improved safety engagement
