Being aware that the world has limited resources and everyone has his vital functions in sustaining the environment, the Centro Escolar University Human Resource Department in cooperation with the CEU Planning and Monitoring Department launched its 7S Campaign: An Improvement to the CEU Environmental Management Program last June 29, 2012 at the CEU Student Activity Center.
Through the years, the 5S policy served as a foundation of work improvement in the University, not only for employees’ work areas but also for its students. After implementing the 5S (Sort, Systematize, Standardize, Sweep, Self-discipline) policy for the past years, CEU has raised its bar in improving its work areas and came up with two additional Ss (Security and Safety) making it an improved practice.
Part of the campaign launch were the presentation of the results of internal visits, an overview of the benchmarking activities made, an orientation regarding the improved campaign (7S), the revised policies and procedures, an open forum, and the parade. The unveiling of the 7S symbol was the highlight of the event, followed by the pledge of commitment by the ceremony attendees.
“7S should be practiced for a more responsible action. Let us make 7S a way of life inside the University,” Dr. Erna V. Yabut, VP for Research and Evaluation remarked.
