Our groups have now completed pitching our ideas to Prepworld, all of which have been successful including my group ‘Wastebusters’.
To recap the aims of our group- our intentions are to make the workers feel motivated perform their work better than usual in order to reduce waste. Our main concept for achieving that is to create a ‘Reward system’ for the employees and including a wall of fame for each employee to generate friendly competition against everyone for seeing who can reduce the most fruit waste. Other than that we also showcased that the work environment could look better by making the rooms more colourful.
Other than having issues with having to organise birthdays for employees, the overall reception for our idea has been positive. The idea of including music in the factory has especially been favoured in order to generate pink noise to balance out other general noise that occurs within the factory.
