What can and can’t I do?

Tuesday, 20 December 2016 by

It is very useful to know what is appropriate behavior and compare it with inadequate one. For example, “In this area we need to wear boots and sandals are prohibited” or “you need to speak with respect, we can not scream.” By having both behaviors next to each other we can compare them and therefore

An APP

Tuesday, 18 October 2016 by

Have you ever thought of developing an APP for your workers? Right now most of us have smartphones that allow us not only call and use internet but also help us play and learn. You can design an application in which workers can play while learning about their labor rights and obligations and even develop

The best recipe

Tuesday, 11 October 2016 by

Ask workers to draw up the best recipe for a “delicious” work environment. For example, “we need 10 friendly supervisors, 3 daily smiles, 1 tablespoon of motivation and a pinch of listening”. Collect all the recipes and invite employees to lunch. If you print the recipes on coloured paper and distribute them among workers, they

Groups

Tuesday, 20 September 2016 by

With the technology available, it is becoming easier to learn new things and even maintain contact. During a course we could open a page on Facebook, or a group on Whatsapp for participants to share concerns, questions or suggestions. If you leave the group open once the course is over, it could help participants continue

Making it easy

Tuesday, 13 September 2016 by

I loved seeing a company thanking its workers for the comments and complaints they made in the suggestion box. How? First, by making it easy to fill them in! They left sheets of paper and pens next to the box. Secondly they also wrote “thank you” on the outside of the box. The other way

How are you doing?

I was recently in a factory where each department measured the number of incidents or deviations from occupational safety and health standards that had been identified. Thus, each month you could see how the standards were fulfilled in each department and what were the causes of deviation. To motivate each department, those with fewer deviations

How far are we?

Tuesday, 30 August 2016 by

How close are we to our goal? If we are able to set our goals based on measurable criteria, we can measure how well we progress. For example, we could set a target to “reduce the number of cases of harassment in a year to 0%”, “increase in 10% in the number of written complaints

What do you like?

Tuesday, 09 August 2016 by

Ask your workers join groups of 5 to 10 people. Have them make a list of the 10 things they like about the company or of working there. Merge the different lists. Can you create a single one with the items included in the majority? Can we make a workers’ manifesto? It could be the

How do you like me?

Tuesday, 02 August 2016 by

Even when I like someone very much, there are always things I like about their behaviour and others that I don’t. Let workers ask these 2 questions: When do you like me? When do you dislike me? With these questions they can gain awareness of their behaviours and those of others. In addition it can

Cause and effect

Tuesday, 12 July 2016 by

We often forget to say how productivity and can be improved. To who? To everyone. We forget to tell both managers and workers. “When I have a wound I do my job worse” or “When I’m frustrated my mind is not at work”. When designing posters and infographics on labour rights or health and safety,
