The motivation cycle
Humpert is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of bicycle handlebars, but it is not complacent. “You have no chance on the market without motivated employees” Project Manager Dirk Linnewerth explained.
G.I.B., the Innovative Employment Promotion Company GmbH in North Rhine-Westphalia (Germany) operates the Potentialberatung programme to provide short term consultancy for SMEs. Private consultants work with firms and their employees on work organisation, competence development, organisational safety, health and demographic development. The consultancy has to be carried out in a participative and process-oriented way in which employees are closely involved. Consultants don’t sell readymade solutions but co-create unique, tailor made solutions with employees.
At Humpert this led to renewed emphasis on employee suggestions for improvement, a new approach to employee appraisal and a reorganisation of workflow.
