In any era, the people matter

Inspiring employees never goes out of style

Gene’s story of his early days or learning the wire and cable industry – where the driving focus was “keeping the line running” – can be seen as a tale of a past era. He notes that even as the technology continues to evolve, some aspects of what mattered most decades ago still applies for a simple reason: the people working on the shop floor are important.

Hold the line

Don't let your line run you

A lot has changed since 1979. New technology has made the production easier and the machinery better. Many products that had multiple processes can now be done in just one pass. So what’s missing?

I feel what is lacking today is critical thinking and people skills. There’s far more information available, and that’s good, but I don’t see the same widespread desire by employees in many plants to want to understand a process. When things go bad, which is inevitable. it’s time to work with your colleagues to figure out what’s wrong, and how to make it right. To get that line running again. That’s what we specialized in long ago.
