Parker Empowered Teams: A Cultural Shift of High Significance. There are many ways to shape a company‘s culture. One of them is our initiative “Parker Empowered Teams” that fosters each employee’s empowerment and enlarges their scope for decision-making. The initiative invites everyone to become an empowered employee which means acting proactively within the own area of responsibility and contributing to Parker’s common success through creativity, know-how and one’s own ideas.

Our “empowered teams” learn to direct themselves towards a common goal in order to effectively organize their work. In the end, the competency of our teams to make common decisions and to solve problems is of increasing strategic importance for Parker. Numerous empowered teams have been nominated in our different divisions and locations that show how the PET process works: Together with the manager of each team and the site coach, team members discuss questions of the day-to-day team business and work on practical improvements. They make mandatory commitments e.g. to deal with conflicts effectively or to smoothen the internal communication within the team.

By that, “Parker Empowered Teams” supports our company culture that builds on mutual respect and the contribution of the individual employee.
