Enhanced Working Practices

One of the programs that sets us apart is our award-winning Enhanced Working PracticesTM (EWPTM), which enable you to develop yourself and others on the job every day. At the heart of our EWPTM approach is the concept of “Teach, don’t tell”—using open-ended questions that teach our people to think and learn, rather than just telling our people the answer. This is supported by the use of five on-the-job “routines”:

  • shadowing
  • lessons learned
  • team workshops
  • rounds and observation
  • feedback
