5S Journey

It is crucially evident that people (management and employees) are a very important dimension in the success of an organization. Besides affecting fellow colleagues subordinately – positively or negatively – and playing a big role in shaping culture, they also have a huge impact on business where operationally, they can alter the financial outcome, as reported by Sears – a retail giant grossing in excess of US$40 billion a year in revenue :

Improve 5% in employee attitude

            = 1.3% improvement in customer impression

            = 0.5% improvement in revenues

            = US$ 200 million
