At KMF we understand that our workforce is out greatest asset. We, therefore, do everything we can to keep them safe and provide them with the best opportunities to develop.
From our intensive operator training schemes, to our new adult apprenticeship programme, we invest heavily in retaining our workforce and assisting them with their individual career progression.
Every year we run a Productivity Share Scheme (PSS), which encourages our employees to propose ideas on possible ways to improve our efficiency and productivity. The scheme is now in its seventh year and in 2016 generated over £446,000 of savings, emanating from 156 contributors.
The initiative concentrates on seven key areas of waste, which also help improve our sustainability, namely: overproduction; inventory; transport; process; idle time; operator motion and bad quality. Previous successes include going 'paperless' in Payroll and the redesign of our paint line with new flight bars.
At KMF we are also passionate about our future workforce. Our award-winning apprenticeship scheme and impressive work experience programme, helps us to ensure we always have a highly-skilled and consistent skill base.
