From the CEO
With the new year comes new opportunities for Bobbitt to increase the value we bring to customers, as well as to strengthen the organization and the skills of our people. One of the ways we are doing that is with the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS), a model that builds an open, transparent and honest culture where every employee can contribute and thrive.
This is not the first time you have heard about EOS; the Executive Leadership team embarked on this journey in mid-2017 and will continue to expand our utilization of the toolkit over the next few years until it becomes ingrained in how we operate day in and day out. EOS brings focus, discipline and accountability to dynamic companies. It helps define what is important, who owns it, and exactly what success looks like. This model will enable us to not only identify problems, but it also provides a framework to solve them.
While we all know that developing a company culture can have its challenges, change is essential to keep pace as our industry and markets evolve. We needed a strong holistic system to help us establish a clear vision, understand the steps to get there, organize and implement processes, and define roles throughout the organization. We are confident that our employee-owners will reap the rewards of a more process-driven organization, and EOS will get us there.
As many of you have already experienced, we are moving into our Level 10 departmental meetings, a cornerstone of EOS. By running better meetings, we will see increased productivity and less time wasted. This is just one of the many tools of EOS that will give Bobbitt a competitive edge.
I am personally committed to ushering in EOS to bring about the changes Bobbitt must make to be viable in our industry for another 70 years. With everyone in our organization 100 percent on board, we can achieve greater things for our company and create a more satisfying work culture for our people.
