At the start of the new millennium, a culture change takes place at Rotax. Rodger Lewis, a longstanding senior manager at Toyota and General Motors, takes the helm as CEO in Gunskirchen. His idea of company-wide reorganization and restructuring, in particular for production processes, results in the RQPS – the Rotax Quality Production System. And at the center of the culture change are individual employees: Every individual and every team should contribute to the success of Rotax. A suggestions scheme aims to provide the necessary inspiration and incentive.

The Rotax Staff Suggestion Scheme (RVVS)
The aim of the Rotax Staff Suggestion Scheme, (Rotax Verbesserungs-Vorschlags-Systems, RVVS) is to motivate staff and encourage them to get actively involved. It is their day-to-day commitment and their will to optimize and improve processes that ensure the company’s success. A bonus scheme acts as a particular incentive, with employees recognized for any of their suggestions that are implemented and being rewarded by management. Something that in many workplaces is seen as a laborious task becomes a popular and much-used tool to enable staff to have a say in the direction of the company. Today around 30 ideas are submitted to the RVVS every day, demonstrating that change is not a risk or a reason to be fearful, it’s an opportunity for improvement!
