  • Employee motivation and empowerment

    Our company is struggling in how to meet the IATF requirement 7.3.2. Our procedure was vague at first and then it was rewritten to clarify what type of evidence would be provided to show that we are meeting the intent of this requirement and was still shot down by our auditor at our follow-up surveillance audit to close out some findings. Without placing a lot of garbage in our procedure that we know won't be done, how do we go about being practical in meeting this particular requirement? Could you provide examples of what other companies are doing? Are other companies struggling with being compliant with this clause of the standard?
