BRING YOUR COMPLEX BENDS TO THE STAGE

PREVENT VS. REACT TO QUALITY PROBLEMS

Mistakes happen, but when they reoccur it can result in poor quality and added costs. Through creating a Quality at the Source culture, you reduce the number of errors and eliminate defects.

Quality at the Source

What is Quality at the Source?

  • Clear, defined quality standards
  • Problems are visually identifiable
  • Developed standard work expectations
  • Cross-trained employees able to identify concerns
  • Employees responsible for the inspection of their own work
  • Work stops to take corrective action when needed

Utilizing a kaizen event will help identify areas that can benefit from implementing Quality at the Source process. View this webinar to learn more about the kaizen process.

CHEREE GEISLER, HR GENERALIST

Cheree Geisler Headshot

After growing up in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, Cheree Geisler headed north to earn her college degree. While attending Bemidji State University with her high school sweetheart, Cheree began to forge her career in human resources.

The beginning of Cheree’s career path saw an H.R. management role at Target, as well as a position with a small electrical company, where she “handled contracts, safety, insurance, even some billing…,” in addition to her human resources duties. “You have to wear a lot of hats in a small business,” Cheree remembers with a smile.

Working on a team, specifically her Wilson Tool team in Human Resources, has become a source of inspiration for Cheree. “I love having the opportunity to work with individuals that are more experienced than myself so I can soak in whatever they have to offer.” In her short time with the team at Wilson Tool, Cheree has proven to be an asset in her own right.

Cheree and her husband, Mike have a cabin on the lake in Brainerd, Minnesota. They enjoy kayaking and hiking their secluded acreage, as they work to build their dream home by the lake.
