Results that Matter

Chris SenskeSenske Services

Senske PB&J Lesson on ProcessesWe started the WSTC in March 2008 working with the maintenance department in our Kennewick Branch. The immediate result was a group of great team members feeling like someone really cared about what they were doing. They weren't just getting beat up all the time and feeling like losers. Before the WSTC, they knew they were working hard . . . we knew they were working hard. Hard work just didn't show up on the bottom line. The second result was they started to care about what they were doing. Third, and this is the real value of the WSTC, they started to suggest and advise how they could do their jobs better. By week 26 of the program, we had reduced labor inputs on some contracts as much as 35%. Injuries were down, accidents were down and other departments were jumping in wanting to be part of the WSTC training program.

Alliance Benefit Group

Alliance Benefit Group Working Smarter CelebrationAs a recordkeeping firm for qualified plans, we actually work closely with many banks that provide investment or trustee services. We pride ourselves on checks and balances and tight operations like a bank would require. I think any entity looking to cut waste from basic processes will benefit from the Working Smarter Training Challenge.
