We’re dealing with the current slowdown in the automotive industry. Of course, we’ve implemented some of our agility measures and we’re very closely managing our variables and fixed costs.
We’ve started an internal campaign so everybody understands just how important their work is. On-site screens show our products and how we’re contributing to safer roadways. We’re basically saving people’s lives. The staff know we’re making a significant and worthwhile product.
Employees are concerned when we talk to them about lower customer orders, as you’d expect. But nobody is letting the negative volume trend affect the quality of their work. That shows how meaningful our product is, and the level of dedication to our company.
The level of dedication and productivity here is really special, even when customer orders aren’t quite going our way. It’s important for us to keep celebrating whenever we’re successful. But we may have to find more cost-effective ways to celebrate.
The level of dedication and commitment here really stands out, even when business conditions aren’t favorable. It’s impressive to see.
We understand that it’s a turbulent time in the automotive industry. That means we need to communicate clearly, and more frequently. We must work to quickly make any new information available to everyone in our facility. The core message, however, will remain the same: “Our daily work is important. We make a product that saves lives.”
