At the Principality, we are very proud not only to be the no 1 building society in Wales, but also the UKs 6th largest. As a mutual building society, we are owned by and run for the benefit of our members, and in order to be the best for them, operating in a continuous improvement culture is paramount.

Continuous Improvement in the Principality utilises a unique blend of traditional approaches such as Lean and Six Sigma, together with some of the newer ways of thinking which challenge the fundamentals of service in operations and support functions, along with the thinking behind these principles. This results in an improved service across the end to end customer journey, benefits for our colleagues, improved financial performance and reduced operational risk.

During your visit you will have the opportunity to hear from our Customer Director, Julie-Ann Haines, who will introduce you to the Principality, our purpose, 2020 vision, core values and organisational set-up. This will be followed by a session with our CI Team, examining our approach, our deployment plan and the impact that we are seeing to date.

We will conduct a tour of our operational areas within Head Office before lunch is served. During this time there will be opportunity to ask more questions before we finish.

The team look forward to welcoming you to our event.

Disgrifiad:Principality – Cyflwyno Gwelliant Parhaol mewn Gwasanaethau Ariannol

Yma yn y Principality, rydym ni’n falch iawn mai ni ydy’r Gymdeithas Adeiladu fwyaf yng Nghymru a hefyd y 6ed fwyaf ym Mhrydain. Rydym ni’n gymdeithas adeiladu gydfuddiannol sydd ym mherchnogaeth ein haelodau ac sy’n cael ei rhedeg er eu lles. Er mwyn inni fod ar ein gorau mae meithrin diwylliant o wella’n barhaol yn bwysig iawn.

Mae system Gwelliant Parhaol y Principality yn defnyddio dulliau traddodiadol fel Lean a Six Sigma, ynghyd â rhai o’r ffyrdd mwyaf diweddar o feddwl. Mae hyn yn gosod her i hanfodion gwasanaethau gweithredu a nodweddion cefnogi ac yn annog pobl i feddwl y tu hwnt i’r egwyddorion hyn. Mae hyn yn arwain at wasanaeth gwell i’r cwsmer ym mhob agwedd o’r gwasanaeth, manteision i’n cydweithwyr, perfformiad ariannol gwell a llai o risg gweithredol.

Yn ystod yr ymweliad cewch glywed gan ein Cyfarwyddwyr Cwsmeriaid, Julie-Ann Haines, fydd yn rhoi cyflwyniad ichi am y Principality gan sôn am ein diben, gweledigaeth 2020, ein gwerthoedd craidd a threfn y mudiad. Yn dilyn hyn bydd sesiwn gyda’n tîm Gwelliant Parhaol fydd yn edrych ar ein ffordd o weithio, ein cynllun gweithredu a’r dylanwad sydd i’w weld hyd yma.

Byddwn ni’n arwain taith o amgylch ein hadrannau gweithredol yn ein Prif Swyddfa cyn darparu cinio. Yn ystod y cyfnod hwn bydd cyfle ichi ofyn mwy o gwestiynau cyn inni orffen.

Mae’r tîm yn edrych ymlaen at eich croesawu i’n digwyddiad.

Calsonic Kansei Llanelli (CKLL) is part of a global business and the site has supplied to the automotive industry for 74 years. Like many businesses we face continuous competition from external competitors and also within the Calsonic Kansei family.

Staying competitive is a critical success factor and reducing costs is key. As a result we have created an aggressive cost saving programme that is part of our business plan and culture.

The challenge is to save costs, as quickly as possible, as economically as possible and then maintaining these savings. Easy to say, but almost impossible to achieve and maintain, however CKLL are achieving just this feat.

Is this applicable to all businesses? Yes, the examples are applicable to us all, and most importantly have been achieved with minimum cost. You may be a small business or part of an international organisation, CKLL will share the lessons they learned and how can this also be achieved in your own organisation.

Disgrifiad:Mae Calsonic Kansei Llanelli (CKLL) wedi darparu cydrannau ar gyfer y diwydiant ceir ers 74 o flynyddoedd ac yn rhan o fusnes byd-eang. Fel llawer o fusnesau mae CKLL mewn cystadleuaeth parhaus â chystadleuwyr, rhai ohonyn nhw’n allanol a rhai’n aelodau o deulu Calsonic Kansei ei hun.

Mae parhau’n gystadleuol yn greiddiol i bob llwyddiant, ac elfen allweddol o’r gwaith hwnnw ydi lleihau costau. O ganlyniad, fe grewyd rhaglen lem o dorri costau a’i chymhwyso i’r cynllun busnes ac i ddiwylliant y cwmni.

Yr her sy’n rhaid ei hateb ydi’r her i arbed costau yn y modd cyflymaf a mwyaf darbodus posibl, ac yna i gynnal yr arbedion. Mae hon yn dasg hawdd ei chyflwyno, ond bron yn amhosibl ei chyflawni a’i chynnal dros amser; ac eto, dyna’n union mae CKLL wedi llwyddo i’w wneud.

Oes yma wersi i bob busnes? Oes, mae gwers yma i ni gyd ac, yn fwyaf pwysig, mae’r arbedion a gyflawnwyd wedi eu sicrhau ar leiafswm cost. P’un a ydych chi’n fusnes bach neu’n rhan o gwmni rhyngwladol, mae CKLL yn fodlon rhannu’r hyn a ddysgon nhw efo chi ynghyd â sut y gallwch chithau hefyd gyflawni’r hyn a gyflawnon nhw.
