"Mitarbeiten heisst mitdenken": die Geschichte des Vorschlagswesens bei GF ("Employees think ahead": the history of the suggestion scheme at GF) (2019)

unapi

Ab Mitte des 20. Jahrhunderts bemühte sich die Georg Fischer AG in Schaffhausen, mithilfe eines unternehmensweit organisierten Vorschlagswesens das Ideen- und Kreativitätspotenzial der Mitarbeitenden zu nutzen. Das Vorschlagswesen war einerseits ein Instrument der Mitarbeiterpartizipation, andererseits sollte es auch nicht unerheblich zu Rationalisierungen und Einsparungen beitragen. Dieser Beitrag erzählt die Geschichte des Vorschlagswesens bei GF und setzt es in den gesamtschweizerischen Kontext. Insbesondere die Anstrengungen des Personalchefs Hans Weber in den 1950er-Jahren legten die Basis für die wachsende Akzeptanz und Etablierung des Vorschlagswesens als bis heute funktionierendes Element eines partizipativen Innovationsmanagements. [From the mid-20th century onwards, Georg Fischer AG in Schaffhausen endeavoured to harness the potential of its employees' ideas and creativity by means of a company-wide suggestion scheme. On the one hand, the suggestion scheme was an instrument of employee participation, but on the other hand it was also intended to make a not inconsiderable contribution to rationalization and savings. This article tells the story of the suggestion system at GF and puts it in the context of the whole of Switzerland. In particular, the efforts of Hans Weber, Head of Human Resources, in the 1950s laid the foundation for the growing acceptance and establishment of the suggestion system as an element of participative innovation management that still functions today.]
