If we wouldn’t have engaged PVA we most likely wouldn’t be talking about it today.
PVA’s intervention enabled us to deploy a performance management system for all our Managers in both Quebec and Ontario. PVA’s team was able to adjust to our needs, and bring our Managers from different cultures to adopt a unique management system. We surpassed the anticipated benefits. Two years later, the system is still being utilized daily, and we continue to enhance it.
We hired PVA for 2 reasons - for cost savings and to change people's attitudes. On both fronts they accomplished the targets.
We engaged PVA based on positive feedback we received from some of their previous clients. In a relatively short period of time, they conducted reviews in the agreed focus areas and identified the cost savings that could be achieved by implementing their approach. we achieved the promised savings and have seen a significant positive impact to business results.
The big win was increasing the active supervision and re-defining the role of the Supervisor. This contributed to the results which are (currently) tracking to the targets.
I am pleased to say that we have now successfully implemented a weekly work plan, bi-weekly KPI’s, an opportunity-based Steering Committee, held multiple Supervisor coaching sessions, and significantly reduced overtime. Overall the process has been very well received, the PVA staff have been great to work alongside, and I look forward to the next steps in my department’s ongoing Continuous Improvement process.
