On May 13, the awards were handed out to the winners of the Factory of the Year competition for the first time. Legrand Zrt. became the winner of the Best management processes category, and also earned the jury’s special award for Corporate social responsibility. At the awards ceremony, general manager László Károlyi accepted the two certificates and the award plaque on behalf of the company.
During the contest, announced by the publisher Professional Publishing Hungary in two rounds, the professional jury judged the work of 51 candidates, grouped in 3 sizes and 7 categories. The submitted works were evaluated by Process Solution’s team, in which 75% were based on objective data, and 25% based on personal impressions. They were not in an easy situation, since in the frame of the competition they had to compare the whole of the domestic manufacturing industries, regardless of their sector. The decisions were made by the 13 member panel of experts, after the personal auditing of the shortlisted companies.
Legrand Zrt. has made the shortlist in 3 categories (best management processes, production and employee satisfaction), based on the company’s submitted material, which is quite an outstanding achievement. At the award ceremony, the company was praised for its innovative ideas and processes, and for the results it has achieved so far. The victory in the Best management processes category proves to us, that we progress towards the fulfillment of our goals in a good direction, in addition to the supporting and innovative management approach.
Corporate social responsibility was not included as a separate category, but based on the jury’s unanimous decision a special prize was awarded for Legrand Zrt. for its activities presented in this field.
