Every year, Southland Industries encourages employees throughout the company to participate in a monthly video challenge. Employees demonstrate how they have been inspired to implement lean concepts into their workflow and workplace. Each month is given a theme and submissions must clearly communicate the reduction or elimination of waste, focus on customer value, demonstrate continuous improvements, and capitalize on knowledge of our people and partners. In addition to monthly winners, a grand prize winner is nominated to attend the annual Lean Construction Institute (LCI) Congress.
