Quality Circle is a group of workers or employees, who meet on a regular basis to identify, analyze and resolve work-related issues. Originally, the concept of Quality Circle emerged in the United States but now has become an integral part of the industry of every country all around the globe.
They are usually small formal groups formed by voluntary engagement of employees, generally coming from the same area. The objectives of forming a quality circle are as follows:
- Improve the quality of products that are being manufactured by the organization in the manufacturing plants.
- Improve the methods and ways of production.
- Development of employees and individual taking part in the Quality Circle.
- Aggravating morale of the employees and motivate them.
- Respect the human resources and humanity and create a positive and cheerful environment at the workplace.
Another important feature of Quality circle is its flexibility of independent agendas with its own terms of reference. Also, the group works exclusively towards improving the quality of the products by any means and takes core steps to achieve the desired goals.
Quality Circles build trust and understanding between the management and the workers. Co-operation is the key element of production and operation, and not confrontation; quality circles achieve this with successful and precise implementation. It also encourages the sense of belongingness among the members of the circle, making them realize that they have an important job and needs to work hard towards bringing out the optimum efficiency of the organization. This entire concept provides the opportunities to its members to showcase their wisdom, creativity and experience in bringing out the improvements by converting the challenges into opportunities. Moreover, Quality Circles have the advantage of continuity which means that the circle in action remains intact, undisturbed and unchanged from project to project.
