Operational Excellence - Using "manage by fact" problem solving, six sigma and continuous improvement workshops, Kaizen events, and our proprietary "M2S" (Maxion Managment System) tool, our experienced Op Ex trainers show employees how to use a consistent problem-solving approach to increase efficiencies in all areas of the company.
Performance Management - We have trained our employees at all of our locations to use a common performance goal-setting and appraisal methodology, which culminates in an individual development plan for each employee.
We have created many local training programs based on the needs of our specific locations or business units. Examples include language instruction, health and wellness training, product training and manufacturing on-the-job training.
