The Total Employee Involvement

The Total Employee Involvement program ensures that responsibility for the company’s performance is the shared responsibility of all levels of employees. It provides all employees with the opportunity to be involved in breakthrough activities and other improvements, over and above their daily routine.

Daily work management

Daily work management consists of defining and monitoring key processes, ensuring that they meet set targets, detecting abnormalities and preventing their recurrence. TVS Motor encourages continuous improvement in all aspects of work, using Cross Functional Teams (CFT), Supervisory Improvement Teams (SIT) Quality Control Circles (QCC) and suggestion schemes

The five pillars start with policy management, which is used to arrive at the annual breakthrough objectives. There are generally not more than three company objectives, arrived at after a detailed exercise, which are deployed and reviewed periodically.

The company conducts an exhaustive range of training programs, utilising both in-house skills and consuftants from all over the world. The programs are conducted for all employees, at all levels.

The Inspiration Moment

When we won the Deming Prize in Quality in 2002, we were the only two wheeler manufacturer in the world to have won the award. However, our penchant for quality continues as we work in line with the principles of Kaizen (Japanese for Continuous improvement) and TQM (Total Quality Management).
