Feedback from the Business Education world on Ryder’s company culture
On 6th June 2012, Ryder Industries hosted a visit from five business education specialists for an in-depth exploration of Ryder’s company culture. The visitors were three professors from Pacific Lutheran University (PLU) and two programme leaders from Sun Yat-sen University Business School (SYSBS). Both PLU and SYSBS have designated Ryder as a case-study company for their MBA programmes and send their MBA students every two years to study Ryder’s
company culture and management systems.
- During the June 2012 visit, Ryder’s “1+3 Communication System” drew the attention of the university representatives as a unique and effective cross-level internal communication system. Through regular
face-to-face meetings across levels and departments, timely and effective communications can be well achieved within the company.
- Furthermore, our visitors praised Ryder’s low turnover rate. In a memo summarizing the group’s impressions from their visit, they commented, “It is not easy for an enterprise to keep employees for 10 years; here in Ryder there are not only many production workers who have been in Ryder for more than 10 years, but also many staff who have devoted themselves for more than 20 years. This is a good example of Ryder’s people-oriented management principle, ‘The employees are the company's asset, and the company grows with its employees’.”
- Ryder looks forward to further contact with the MBA students as another way of keeping in touch with modern thinking on business management and practices. PLU and SYSBS will send the next group of students to visit Ryder by 2014.
