Building Maintenance Teams

Building a successful maintenance team is a challenge for any manufacturing organisation. Here are a few tips to help any manager start and build an efficient team:


Set Goals – identifying clear goals and objectives for the team and individual members including targets and any rewards. Use a framework like the S.M.A.R.T (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time) model to identify goals.

Hire the right people – not only for the skills required but cultural fit can be as important when building a team, a specialist recruitment consultancy can often help.

Develop standard operating procedures – having standardised maintenance procedures ensures all tasks are completed by any team member, improving efficiency and quality and encourages team work.


Encourage a culture of continuous improvement and collaboration – constant reviews of performance and procedures will identify areas for improvement and encouraging input will make team members feel valued and appreciated.

Invest in your team – by providing regular training you can help team members learn new skills and keep up to date with the latest trends and technology, helping to keep your team motivated and encouraging loyalty to the company.
