    Nearly one year in to the COVID-19 pandemic, the novelty of novel coronavirus has worn away. Throughout the pandemic, Wabash National has kept COVID-19 infection rates low among the workforce, especially given the nature of manufacturing operations. One way the company has achieved this is by maintaining critical alignment among the environmental health and safety (EHS) and human resources (HR) teams. Behind the scenes, there are stakeholders working hard to ensure a safe and healthy workplace environment for all.

    Kim Scott’s Radical Candor opens with a story and pattern of behavior many of us have experienced. Rather than give honest and direct feedback to her direct report about things he needed to do better, because it would be difficult or uncomfortable, she stayed silent. In the end, they both suffered: her ruinous empathy robbed him from the chance to learn and grow, and he didn’t know there was a performance issue, so, eventually, was fired.

  • Four Ways Our Wabash Management System Principles Facilitate Inclusion

    • Date: 12/11/2020 6:06:02 PM
    • Author: Claire Haggard, Wabash Management System, Enterprise Manager

    This year, Wabash National formally introduced the Wabash Management System (WMS)—a set of principles and standardized business processes to advance Wabash National’s strategy, breakthrough improvement and increased magnitude of results.

    • Date: 10/13/2020 3:58:04 PM
    • Author: Rachelle Henderson, Communications Specialist

    In the manufacturing sector, low levels of employee engagement can be par for the course, leading to high turnover, low employee morale and poor communication. At Wabash National, we’re working hard not to be like everyone else. As we sought to transform our culture, we understood we could only do that by transforming how we work. We started by focusing on a single, powerful principle: put people first. We asked ourselves tough, but necessary, questions, such as How do we transform Wabash National to be a place where people want to work? Answer: we must excel at employee engagement.

    • Author: Rachelle Henderson, Communications Specialist

    Imagine a workplace policy where all projects must be completed within 72 hours. The nature and scope of the work isn’t considered. There’s no distinction between time allotted to complete a five-page quarterly report or a company-wide rollout of complex, new software. The rule is simple and fixed: all individuals and teams have 72 hours to complete projects. These parameters are equal, and, still, most of us would agree they aren’t fair, or in this context, equitable.
