GFE-Solutions is a place where we like to come every day. Our task is to provide high-quality engineering services. It means that we help other companies to make their working process more efficient and better. The working day begins quite similar as in other offices. We come to work in the morning, wish a nice day to colleagues, drink a cup of coffee or tea, and start to work. Each day has certain important events in which employees participate together in teams, groups, or individually.
In our daily routine, we face various issues. Most of them are tasks that require a nice solution. To achieve high results we use brainstorms. During the brainstorming sessions, participants are encouraged to express as many options as possible to resolve the issue.
As a result, several solutions that are most acceptable for the problem are selected. Then, we evaluate the pros and cons together with the effectiveness of each option. If the discussion process has reached a dead-end or the voices of the disputants are divided equally, we do not hesitate to call the “fresh” heads. We always have a moderator who does not leave the process for a minute. Sometimes employees may be timid and not speak up in time. Such a person helps to monitor the timing, asks leading questions, and lets everyone speak.
In the development of engineering solutions, it is crucial to check blueprints before working on them. It greatly reduces the amount of time and resources that could be used on wrong schemes. Reevaluation of working blueprints helps to find new effective solutions.
Proper communication between workers of the company is important. Every day at 5 pm, we have team meetings. They help to review the whole progress on the projects and other tasks. Teams discuss their plans and what issues they have solved. If there is an important case, which has to be solved, everyone is ready to listen up and to provide ideas. A written report and plan are prepared for such a meeting. The manager adjusts the plan of each employee, sums up the results, and announces the results of the day.
Daily meetings are very helpful in creating proper communication between executives and management positions. Moreover, it allows chefs to have a better understanding of the working process in the company.
Another reason for daily meetings is to coordinate several teams. While working on projects it is necessary to discuss the short-term plans and ways of accomplishing them. Thus, the results are more efficient.
