Kimberly-Clark Professional launches engagement platform for laboratories

Leading provider of hygiene, safety and productivity solutions has launched a new platform to assist laboratories in the engagement of employees in Green, Lean and Protection issues

The Scientific division of Kimberly-Clark Professional, a leading provider of hygiene, safety and productivity solutions, has launched a new platform to assist laboratories in the engagement of employees in Green, Lean and Protection issues. Hosted on the company’s Exceptional Laboratories online portal, the platform offers free engagement tools and services to distributors and laboratories to complement its KIMTECH branded personal protection equipment.

A simple, yet engaging video outlines the programme: ‘It all adds up… to Exceptional Laboratories’.

'We believe people are key to a company’s success and simple engagement solutions really do amount to solid financial benefits. Evidence provided by Aon Hewitt’s 2013 Trends in Global Employee Engagement report suggests that every 1% increase in employee engagement indicates a 0.6% growth in sales,' said Kristin Barrett, KIMTECH Category Manager for Europe.

'With this in mind, we realised we needed to change the conversation between PPE distributors and laboratories. Many laboratories remain focused on price when purchasing protection equipment but control of waste, contamination, and health and safety risks often have greater impact on costs over the long term. By helping our customers engage their employees in these matters, laboratory managers will be able to run healthier, safer and more productive labs in the most environmentally sustainable way possible,' continued Barrett.

Distributors, laboratory managers and laboratory staff at all levels will find links to downloadable tools and services designed specifically to increase knowledge and simplify participation in personal and environmental protection, the reduction of contamination risk in the laboratory, and regulatory compliance.
