Kaizen is a Japanese term that means "improvement". 'Kai' translates as 'change' and 'zen' means 'good'. It is a philosophy that targets continuous improvement in human resources and processes, thus improving efficiency and overall well-being of employees. Kaizen was first applied in Japanese companies after World War II. The results of Kaizen have been significant and are now used in companies all over the world.
Efficiency is just one goal of Kaizen. Not only does it raise productivity, but Kaizen aims to provide a healthy working environment for employees of all levels. This in turn creates an organized and creative environment that enriches the company, the employees, and most importantly, the services rendered to the consumers. It is a cycle that requires cooperation and knowledge in all departments.
