Our journey so far – what we’ve learnt

From first meeting Gary Townsend Vila, current Interim Chief Executive, through to working with Lorna Hagan, our BSF Assessor, we knew this was the right vehicle for us with Annual Action Plans and BSF Assessments driving continuous improvement throughout our business. With Leadership, Culture and Corroborating Elements core to the process, the Champion journey was strongly aligned to our value of ‘doing the right thing’ and our purpose of Improving Lives.

The journey was and is still not about the “badge.” It’s about the infinite journey and the attachment we have as a Team to continuous improvement.

The greatest points of value and learning have come from the areas for improvement identified through the process, which we can now focus on and then be reassessed to track our continuous improvement.

Celebrating the “reds” and challenging the “greens” has provided us with a concept of not accepting what we historically considered to be good. And involving our whole workforce will only provide better engagement with our employees and valuable supply chain.

Going forward we have a BSF Working Team, representing key disciplines from within our business, to identify, review and embed best practice improvements and learning into our procedures and service delivery for the benefit of everyone here at Casey, including our employees, subcontract supply chain, clients and occupiers of the buildings in which we work.

The journey and continuous improvement start now.
