Deliver Best Practices

Deliver Best Practices Global Competition

Continuous improvement is an integral part of Jabil’s culture. It is top-of-mind for every employee every day. Whether on the plant floor, running a business, or crunching numbers — we all obsess about how to make things better, faster, and more beneficial.

Jabil’s Deliver Best Practices global competition is a natural extension of our culture. It combines our drive to be the best with our continuous improvement mindset. As an added bonus — and likely the reason for its success — it’s fun!

Since 2009, teams from all over the world have submitted thousands of projects in four broad categories:

  • Beyond the Factory — effective solutions and initiatives for improving office functions for both internal and external customers.
  • Operations — process and system improvements that focus on increasing production efficiency, Jabil’s operational capabilities, and customer relations, both internal and external.
  • Employees — innovative programs aimed at engaging and developing our employees (our internal customers) by enhancing their work experience, increasing job satisfaction, and improving the work environment.
  • Social and Environmental — environmental or socially-responsible initiatives undertaken by any functional area or team with results that improve both internal and external customer satisfaction.

Teams progress through Plant, Semi-Regional, and Regional rounds to reach the Global Finals. Winning teams send a representative to Jabil’s headquarters in St. Petersburg, Florida, each year to present their projects to Jabil executives and to spend time getting to know colleagues from other parts of the world.

By replicating the most impactful projects across as many of our global plants as possible, the impact of these best practices projects is huge. And that’s great news for our employees, our customers, our company, the environment, and the communities in which we operate.
