Textron holds a steadfast commitment to maintaining and enhancing the wellbeing of its employees. Every year the company works to improve workplace safety and the health of its employees, and lessen its impact on the environment. Textron measures its progress across its business units against global operational policies and standards. It relied heavily on manually gathered metrics and wanted a better, faster way to measure progress.
Analytics8 developed a single application to replace an existing set of spreadsheets that were manually compiled. The application provides prompt health and safety metrics and trends to C-level users for managing accident reduction and compliance.
Textron's executives and business managers now see their health and safety results more rapidly and can analyze them in ways that were not feasible with previous reporting tools. This allows the company to quickly identify and address concerns or trends. Getting quick reports has further allowed the company to greatly reduce the number of hours needed to produce monthly health and safety metrics. That estimate is a savings of roughly 40 hours a month.
