GOODRICH GLOBAL LEADERSHIP CENTRE
The sustainability and success of a company depends on the quality and commitment of its employees. At Goodrich Global, we honour our commitment to progress by providing each employee with the opportunity to achieve success. To encourage the development of future leaders, Goodrich Global launched a leadership development initiative September 2015. The Goodrich Global Leadership Centre is poised to prepare the company for the future.
The Centre’s main role is to ensure effectiveness in developing talents within the company so that the company will maintain lasting influence. It was a strategic decision involving the management, regional offices representatives and key managers, made to shift the direction of the company towards one that harnesses the knowledge from within the company in order to become a global leader in the interior furnishing industry. To hone leadership-thinking skills with a future-ready orientation, two task forces were set up to aid this corporate mission.
One of the taskforces holds the primary function of reviewing rules, guidelines and processes within Goodrich Global in order to design a new corporate culture and responsive business process and system. The other task force focuses on developing an improved strategy to enhance the value and desire for Goodrich Global products and services.
The Centre will collate a library of solutions and best practices from within and outside the company over time to serve as the basis for knowledge management and propagation. The strategic shift is anticipated to yield positive results that will benefit the organization, customers and key stakeholders.
With the support from Spring Singapore, Goodrich Global launched the Goodrich iMatch application on 28th August 2015. With iMatch, clients and staff are able to use image and recognition technology to search for products which match their requirements. What was once a three hour task is now reduced to a two minutes search within the product library- improving client engagement and thus increasing overall productivity.
The application is able to search through Goodrich Global’s existing database of 25,000 product offerings using keyword, pattern, color, browsing and image search functions. Users are able to input keywords in the application’s search engine to view matching images of products. Pattern searches are done through a pre-compiled list of existing patterns in the database. Likewise, for the color search, users are given a palette of colors to find their desired products. Users are also able to browse through Goodrich Global’s collection by clicking on the browsing tab which will bring them to a catalogue.
Last but not least, the image search function makes use of state-of-the-art computer image recognition to locate products from our database using images taken from a phone camera. All the functions mentioned above are able to be further refined in their own respective tabs.
3D Scan Visualiser
To ride on the wave of disruptive technologies, Goodrich Global introduced the use of the 3D Scan Visualiser in end 2016, in collaboration with a consortium of 24 other companies in the interior design industry. The project was coordinated by the Workforce Advancement Federation and was funded by SPRING Singapore to encourage small and mediumsized enterprises (SMEs) to be more lean and productive.
