We believe its

all about you

What you achieve

Sure you get lower costs. You also get sustainability. So what is sustainability? Your people are doing things. They are creating and pushing ideas to you. More ideas = lower costs. They are not waiting for you to tell them what to do. Opportunities are being acted upon. They are not missed. Employees are using metrics to analyze their business. Not because they have to. Because they want to. They enjoy getting things done and want to do more.

Finally, a natural, sustainable way to achieve lower costs, better safety, and ideas.

When your employees get things done it feels good. They want more. All this results in lower costs, better safety, more ideas, and profit.

What We Do

At Renshi we understand every company is unique, has hidden ideas ready to release and wants to do a good job.

We release ideas and achieve goals. We do this by pulling those ideas from your employees rather than pushing ours. We track your teams’ progression towards goals and provide positive recognition.

We do this by inserting full-time Performance Management Coaches (PMC’s), into your operation.

When the ideas start flowing – great things happen.

Costs reduce and employee involvement increases. It becomes easier to attract and keep those great employees.

Does flextime improve performance?

Does flextime improve performance?

Phil Uglow looks into the data to find out if companies should implement flextime.

Spoiler alert – “it depends”.


1./  “Should we implement flextime?” is the wrong question. Instead ask, “what do we need to do to improve performance?”
2./ Move operational decisions to the front line.
3./ Monitor actions and costs.

Only then can you decide whether or not to implement flextime.
