Country wide skill contests by Toyota Motors will result in better cars & services
So what if Toyota is holding country wide skill contests, you ask? Most buyers may not be interested in anything else but cars, their features and prices. But when you go out to buy a car, you should know which company is doing what to make their cars and services better. At the end of the day the car can only be as good as the people who make it. So, investing in people is the best move possible by any automobile company.
Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) organized a seminar in Bangalore for Toyota Technical Education Program (T-TEP) stakeholders which was followed by a skill contest for the T-TEP instructors in Bangalore. The annual regional level seminar for Technical Education Program (T-TEP) was organized along with a skill contest to engage the stake holders
The event was held at the National Manpower Excellence Centre, in Toyotaâ€™s Bidadi plant, Bangalore.
The seminar was organized to create a common platform for stakeholders which included T-TEP Institutes, TKM personnel, Supplier partners and Dealer partners.
Skill contest and development for stakeholders means better cars and services for customers.
This is a great move by Toyota to motivate and encourage a culture of improvement and sharing best practices.
