Quality of Work Life

The Portland P&DC recently observed the 20th anniversary of the QWL process.

The QWL concept goes back to 1980 when the national contract talks for Mailhandlers brought the suggestion for a way to contribute to improvement of conditons on the workroom floor. The 10th annual QWL conference was held in Philadelphia this year with over 750 in attendance.

Quality of Work Life intends to utilize the skills and creativity of its employees to solve everyday problems in the work place. Now, that sounds like a Ben Franklin idea!

What are some reasonable ways you can suggest to improve our work life? Click here to comment.
