3M is a global innovation company with over 84,000 employees and operations in more than 65 countries. 3M believes that if your people grow, your company will grow. This is why 3M invests in their people and aligns their growth with company values and their customer loyalty.
As a company with a strong manufacturing presence, the concept of Lean (management concept based on eliminating excess work while improving quality) is important to the organization. As a measure to reinforce Lean within the organization, the HR team was tasked with finding a rewards and recognition solution that would help manage the program around the initiative.
3M partnered with Achievers to remove all barriers for managers to motivate their teams as well as ensure that behaviors being rewarded were aligned to organizational goals.
3M ultimately discovered that Achievers helped transform their culture, employer brand and reward and recognition mindset. Employee engagement increased 7% year-over-year and budget decreased incorporating more rewards and recognition initiatives.
