Joining companies for the 5th consecutive year, Skolnik celebrated World Quality Day on November 8th, 2012. This year, events were held around the world from the US to the Middle East to South Africa. They were also held by organizations of all shapes and sizes from Lockheed Martin to Coca Cola, companies that are small, medium and large. Organized by Stephanie Bravo, Skolnik’s Assistant Quality Director, the theme for 2012 was Quality: Delivering Competitive Advantage. This theme came out of the belief that in order to survive during an economic downturn organizations require a strong competitive advantage. Quality management, and its focus on improving efficiency and productivity, can help to achieve this goal. Ms. Laura Denk of eChoice Innovations gave a presentation on the need for quality to be outstanding as it differentiates the company from other commodity drum manufacturers. George Petersen, Skolnik’s Director of Operations, presented 5 steps to an effective quality culture. After a company-wide luncheon, 12 exceptional employees who contributed significantly to our quality program were given special recognition awards. Overall, it was a great and proud day at Skolnik. Check out the pictures of the day’s events.
