Ethical Productivity

Conceived, created and developed to benefit all members of the company.

At Itemsa we always think about the welfare of people in any project we carry out. Therefore, when we work to improve the companies' productivity and its processes, we do it from the genuine commitment to achieve efficient solutions for the companies while we pursue that the people who are part of them can feel how the changes also benefit them.

One of the main values of Itemsa's corporate philosophy - based on mutual respect and the integral development (competencies, attitudes and behaviors) of those involved in our interventions - is the orientation towards people. Therefore, when we implement projects with our clients, we also do so with the well-being of their employees in the forefront of our minds.

When companies optimize their processes and operations to improve and grow (either by innovating, increasing the productivity of machines, people and processes, improving quality, increasing flexibility, etc.), the cultural change necessary to achieve and consolidate this goals becomes a fundamental pillar from which the team can also be empowered by making them participants in the improvements, in the company's values and in the benefits that the improvements achieved will bring for them.

As we have said, in Itemsa we believe in ethical productivity: conceived, created and developed so that all the people who are part of the company perceive how the changes that we help to implement in our projects benefit the company, but also them. Only in this way and with a firm commitment from all members can we develop new solutions that are more efficient and that consolidate over time the benefits for companies and the people who are part of them.

Ethics and business

Ethics must be present in the strategic, tactical and operational areas of companies; that is to say, any philosophy, approach and management focus of the organization must incorporate it intrinsically and must also be applied by all the people who make it up, so as to guarantee a management based on non-negotiable principles that cannot be adapted for convenience or interpreted according to the moment or circumstances.

Assuming ethics as a business paradigm should guarantee a good present and future for the company and for the people who are part of it. And, obviously, it should not hold back the company's results.

Ethical means doing what is morally right.

The morally correct behavior, when it comes to manual labor, means respecting the workers and not harming anyone while trying to make the work as productive as possible:

  • To respect workers we must involve people in job design and decisions.
  • Provide education and time for workers to learn their jobs.
  • Do not discriminate against anyone on the basis of, for example, gender or nationality.
  • Give workers a fair wage and an efficient, objective and proportional incentive system.

In order not to harm anyone we should:

  • Make the workstation safe to prevent accidents.
  • Prevent workload injuries through good ergonomics.
  • Create a good psychosocial atmosphere in the work environment.
  • Allow time to attend to personal needs and recover from fatigue.

In a scenario of constant concern for people, ethical productivity emerges as the best answer that companies can give to their workers. At Itemsa, we are specialists in accompanying the implementation of projects to improve productivity, increase added value and increase flexibility, based on cultural change in the organization and the training and empowerment of its members.

When we work for a company we become part of it and this allows us to drive cultural transformation from the heart of the productive structure. At Itemsa we are committed to our clients' projects, we collaborate as a team and we link our expectations, objectives and remuneration through a risk-sharing system. Because it is not only about improving productivity, it is also necessary to have the best team to implement and consolidate it and that is why all our actions are framed in the philosophy of ethical productivity.
