What's New | SCORE
A few months before moving to the new factory we decided we needed to make improvements in the way we manufacture our products and run a sustainable business. As we had built a proper factory following the recommendations of our local FDA (BPPOM) so why not learn how to make it lean and more efficient. As a member of BEDO (Business & Export Development Organization), we are privilege to be sponsored to join the SCORE program.
SCORE is sponsored by the International Labor Organization (ILO). ILO a tripartite U.N. agency, that brings together governments, employers and workers representatives of 187 member States, to set labor standards, develop policies and devise programs promoting decent work for all women and men.
Today, the ILO’s program helps advance the economic and working conditions that give all workers, employers and governments a stake in lasting peace, prosperity and progress.
SCORE is the acronym for - Sustaining Competitive and Responsible Enterprises. It is a practical training and in-factory counselling program. SCORE program is about improving productivity and working conditions in small and medium enterprises. It utilizes best international practices in the manufacturing and service sectors and assist SMEs to be ready for the International market.
SCORE is a modular training program that focuses on developing cooperative relations at the workplace. The five SCORE modules cover workplace cooperation, quality management, clean production, human resource management, and occupational health and safety. Each of the modules includes a joint, two-day classroom training for managers and workers and follow-up consultations with experts in the participating enterprises.
We feel the program has helped us identify our weaknesses and strengths, to communicate better with the staff and it has given the staff a better insight into the company with communication channels more open to discuss freely with management. Overall there is a much better understanding and cooperation between the staff a sense of belonging and unity. We now have more meetings where discussions are held on how to improve production and communication between the departments.
To have come thus far with the program is a testimony to their dedication and hard work of the staff members. We now have a more “Gotong Royong” attitude where everyone chips in when we are busy, we are more productive and have fun work together.
