1. TO WHAT EXTENT CAN IMPROVEMENT PROCESS FLOW LEAD TO


INCREASE SALES AND PROFITS

Benefits of Continuous Improvement

The direct benefits of continuous improvements are often easy to predict. You
can calculate or estimate cost and time savings even before you implement
the changes.

 Better Morale: collaborators and employees will benefit from the


improvements and increased dynamism that continuous improvement
provides. Continuous improvement projects are an opportunity for
employees to step outside the box and have a meaningful and rewarding
impact on their job.

 Better Acceptance of New Ideas: When organization is used to


accepting the status quo, new projects and opportunities can be seen in
a negative light. With a continuous improvement strategy deployed,
teams will get used to and appreciate working with the notion that
change is positive.

 Increased Motivation: When those you work with know they are
empowered to observe, analyze and improve the way they work, they’re
more motivated than if they’re expected to simply apply the same old
methods and ways of working. They’ll be more excited about their career
future when they know they can have a positive impact on it.

Continuous Improvement Strategy Is Important

 It gets everyone using the same language. This is key when you’re
looking to deploy lessons learned and best practices across your facility,
processes and business units. Formalizing documents, procedures and
work instructions makes it easier to get everyone on the same page.

 It creates a mindset. Instead of viewing continuous improvement as


something to restart with every new project, a formalized and consistent
approach to continuous improvement teaches people that the system is
inherent to how your business runs. It isn’t something you add to how
you work — it becomes how you work.

 It makes people accountable. When continuous improvement permeates


all levels of your organization, it stops being one person’s job and
becomes part of everyone’s job. Knowing that your business never stops
evolving helps your employees see where they can be an active part of
continuous improvement.

 It reinforces the importance. In this day and age, it’s easy to get lost in
corporate speak and boardroom slogans. Continuous process
improvement needs to be treated as an integral foundation for your

organization, and formalizing how you approach it makes it more


concrete.

achieve those goals.

• The responsibilities and roles of employers, the self-employed, employees


and others.

• The enforcement procedures needed to ensure that the goals are met.

Local Senior Managers are responsible for the effective integration of safety,
health and welfare across all disciplines and services within their area of
responsibility as far as is reasonably practicable, and this includes proactive
management of employees during sickness absence and promoting employee
rehabilitation in the workplace.

Senior Managers, Health and Safety Managers and Nurse/ Midwifery Managers

Healthcare Organizations are required to bring this Safety, Health and Welfare
Circular to the attention of all employees and in particular the Nursing /
