@HomeThe Story of Our Changes - Our KAIZEN Story
In 2001, ISOWA celebrated the 80th Anniversary of the founding of the company. Within the company during that time, the workforce was dominated by robot-like employees who thought things like, "I shouldn't say a word," "I should keep out of other people's work," and "I just have to put up with doing my job" and who did the work they were given in just the way they were told to do it, things that were the exact opposite of the principles for action set up by the company. Under those circumstances, on October 7th of that year, an 80th Anniversary Memorial Lecture was given that became a huge source of motivation in the reformation of our company after that.

The "5S" means Volunteer?

There are famous "5S" activities that were started in Japan. It looks like there are some differences in the definitions of each of the five "S" words from country to country, but here in Japan, one of the S's stands for Seiso ("," which means "Cleaning"). This refers to everyday cleaning to keep your workplace organized, but one day, one of the departments related to manufacturing decided to clean up the area around the factory during the cleaning time after lunch. They cleaned outside instead of the inside of the company for the people living in the neighborhood, all because they worried that those people might be bothered by the trucks going in and out of the plant. After they started doing this, employees from other departments also began to join in, one after another, in cleaning up outside the company. Later on, it was decided that the 15 minutes after lunch every Wednesday at our company ISOWA would be used by all employees to clean, organize, and straighten up the areas both inside the company and outside. (Of course, this is different from the regular, everyday cleaning that we do.)
