The last five years have been synonymous with transformation. They have laid a firm foundation for the years to come: digitalization has truly become a core component in how the Group operates, through its tools, working methods and partnerships. Having been accelerated by the Covid crisis, digitalization is now permanently established in the daily lives of employees.
Although feedback indicates real success in this area, challenges remain to be overcome, and LACROIX Group is keen to go further in its commitments. Since digital technology is by its nature intangible, certain problems can grow unseen. Yet they are very real: pollution and “infobesity”, for example, also affect digital technology. Based on the belief that improving its workspace requires a real effort in this area too, LACROIX Group has set up the ‘Coherence’ project. With a view to further improving the Group’s Digital Work Place, the aim is to apply the Japanese 5S method: Sort, Set in order, Shine, Standardise, Sustain (in Japanese, Seiri, Seiton, Seiso, Seiketsu, Shitsuke). This concept, originally applied to the physical working environment (offices, workshops) is equally valuable in the fight against digital pollution, infobesity and server saturation. LACROIX Group wishes to take this step in order to optimise everyone’s working conditions and help reduce our energy consumption. The ‘Coherence’ project, and digitalization as a whole, will retain their strategic place in LACROIX Group’s objectives for the future.
