Going to the Gemba

In 2022 we continued to live up to our slogan “Vroom is nothing without you!”

The festivities surrounding our 60-year existence gave plenty reason to do so, because we reached this milestone by working together. And now we are going to give the power of that slogan another boost. In the past, the “Going to the Gemba” project was set up, a scheme in which UTA (operational, technical and administrative) personnel were able to visit our colleagues in the field on a relatively regular basis. Gemba is a Japanese word that means ‘the real place’. In our case this is the building site, without wishing to sell the UTA personnel short.

Covid pandemic

Over the past few years less attention was devoted to this as a result of the restrictions on unnecessary movements. The Gemba project has a number of aims, including increasing the sense of togetherness, gaining insight into what goes on outside our own department, improving collaborative working and safeguarding the sharing of knowledge.

We have set the goal of all UTA personnel making a number of visits to project sites during the year, having discussions with colleagues and notifying the organisation on the talks that have taken place. We are very curious as to the developments that will result from this and will keep you informed.
