Firsthand experience

You see that a new employee in your team has made the wrong calculation so that planning is not met. What do you do?

You go to the person to talk about it. First you calmly ask why the mistake was made. It could be, for example, that someone slept badly. You always approach people in a positive way. In this way you find out quicker where the problem lies. It could also be that someone did not fully understand what the objective was. If that is the case, you make sure that you take the time to calmly explain in more detail. It is part of your task to train people and keep them satisfied.

When the problem has been solved, you enter this in the planning and process it in the system. You also make sure that the Warehouse Supervisor is informed. The next day you make sure that it is on the agenda in the pre-shift meeting. In this way, you prevent it from happening again.

Growth

There is plenty of room for further development. You can indicate yourself what your ambitions are and select an appropriate training course. So you could follow the Assistant Supervisor training or the LEAN Awareness training course.
