The APC is expert in providing productivity improvement training programs for employees
By making employees aware of the benefits of improved productivity and giving them the tools and methodologies needed to find improvement opportunities, our training programs produce substantial benefits for your business.
A commitment by employees to high productivity is an essential part of good business performance. Many motivational techniques have been tried over the years, from the carrot of direct material incentives to the stick of onerous supervision. The APC approach starts by acknowledging that employees do not have exactly the same interests as business owners, but areas of overlap, shared interest and alignment of objectives can be identified, encouraged and developed.
These programs generally incorporate a waste reduction project, identified and developed by the participant. The beneficial results that can be realised from the project component of the program derive from the fact that operational and supervisory staff usually have better insights into the opportunities for more efficient use of the resources they deploy than does senior management.
APC programs are designed to teach employees firstly, why they should buy in to productivity improvement and, secondly, to give them the tools needed to make practical improvements in their daily roles. These programs are usually, but not always, aimed at supervisor or management levels and are run on site by our consultants. These are highly effective programs; they improve commitment and morale, enhance efficiency and can save valuable resources.

APC training providers can promptly arrange a consultation to discuss your needs. In a typical project our consultants visit your organisation to meet your management level staff and investigate and observe your operations. They can then propose a training solution, delivered on or off site, that will include both theoretical and practical components.
The APC has vast experience in improving productivity, dating back to our earliest days as an industry self-help movement and as a national productivity research and assistance body.
