Read about LifeWay Christian Resources' experience completing the WERC's Facility Assessment and Certificiation Program.
We thought we were doing a pretty good job, and for us the audit validated that. Certainly there are always things to work on — that’s part of continuous improvement — and the audit did show us a couple of pecific areas we should target next within our operation,and that was very beneficial."

A "Good Enough" Warehouse
Like a virus that spreads, "Good Enough" infects a warehouse, having its managers and employees believing they are performing to a high level, when the reality is, it’s probably just "Good Enough".
The right SKU shipped to the right place at the right time – good enough. Inventory is on the shelf that we can pull when we need it – good enough. Accident free, under budget, exceeding sales, compliant – all good enough. But when was "good enough" really good enough? Aren’t we seeking excellence?
