Birk is an amazing place to work; we are a growing manufacturing company focused on continuous improvement and better serving our customers. To help with this process I have implemented the “Rules” of Birk; the rules are posted throughout the building and are know by all. These rules work great for Birk manufacturing and could be applied to any company. The key to these rules is not that they are posted, it is that everyone truly believes in the meaning and purpose behind the rules. That is the case here at Birk and because of that everyone here at Birk follow the rules because they will WANT to follow them.
Here are our rules for reference; you may use them as they are OR you may develop your own list.
1. Customer First! – This is the most important rule and is the focus of the entire company
2. Help Each Other
3. Learn New Skills
5. HAVE FUN! – This rule is almost as important as #1. I believe that if you love what you do and have fun while working you produce not only a better product but also better ideas for future improvements
