How do you know whether you are doing your best?
How do you ensure you stay ahead of your competitors and how do you stop complacency or even worse, doing just enough for compliance?
These are the risks for all organisations, especially those at the top of their game.
So how do you ensure you stay on top? By challenging yourself to continually measure your performance. For etco* this means:
- Measuring the performance of our students in their assignments, assessments and in the EWRB Theory and Regulation s examinations.
- Measuring the fall out rates of students and apprentices and the time to completion of those who stay.
- Measuring the performance of our apprentices through quarterly appraisals and workplace assessment.
- Measuring the performance of our apprentices through their participation in regional, national and international apprentice competitions.
etco* Chief Executive Peter Rushworth believes that all the measures are important but suggests that it is the last one that is the most visual. “I have been encouraging apprentices to compete in competitions since 1986. It is not only great for the apprentice but also necessary for us to measure our performance. Our apprentices regularly do very well in competitions. If this changes it could mean that we have got slack or that the rest of the industry has got better. Either way we will need to take action”, says Rushworth.
Since the introduction of the ECANZ Challenge in 2002, etco* apprentices have taken first place 55% of the time.
