Medline is reorganising its production workshop and warehouse to improve management and communication processes there, as well as monitoring and continuous improvement of performance. This is a key project for the company involving many changes for staff members. Previously, a team leader could supervise up to 70 staff members, resulting in a lack of local management that could impact communication within the team.
To support the staff, Medline Assembly France has called upon PASCA (Pôle Achats Supply Chain Atlantique) and Groupe IMT* to set up a customised training and certification training plan, the main pillars of which are:
- Support over time
- Balance between individual and collective training
- Taking staff feedback into account.
The deployment of this plan falls within the agenda for setting up new teams, coupled with the integration of a new activity-monitoring IT tool to resolve problems faster.
After two years, the project is coming to an end with a positive outcome, despite several disruptions to planning linked to the pandemic. The company has observed better team cohesion, better understanding of performance challenges and an improvement in communication.
The professional and personal commitment of managers for this training programme has been recognised with a professional qualification certificate (PQC), which all candidates obtained after presenting a dossier and a continuous improvement project.
