5S Excellence Awards by CII Southern Region
5S is a five-step technique for creating and maintaining a good housekeeping at workplace, which makes it free of clutter, well-organized and clean. Once fully implemented, the 5S process can increase morale, create positive impressions on customers and increase efficiency and organization. The effect of 5S on continuous improvement can lead to less waste, better quality and faster lead times. All of which make an organization more profitable and competitive in the market place.
Indian organizations have been successfully adopting 5S practices to create a positive and competitive work environment for its employees. The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) Southern Region organizes the 5S Excellence Award annually to motivate and recognize member companies which successfully implement and sustain 5S practices in their organization. The award is open to Small, Medium and Large scale companies in the Southern Region from manufacturing and service sectors. Participating companies are awarded based on a structured on-site evaluation process by a team of Assessors as per select criteria.
