WOW AWARDS 2018
With confidence in the organization’s potential and unlimited abilities that exist in all employees, Thai Beverage Public Company Limited organized the ‘WOW Awards 2018’ project to seek for outstanding work-related masterpieces and creative ideas initiated by employees. This activity aimed at seeking efficient and productive working styles as part of a campaign to promote ‘ThaiBev Way of Work’ concept.

The WOW Awards 2018 project aimed to promote new working structures based on three key concepts, including ‘Simplicity’ – where works can always be achieved by simple procedures, ‘Efficiency’ – where works must be completed with efficiency, and ‘Competitiveness’ – where works can add competitiveness to the Group. During the application period in September 2018, several business units had proposed their selected masterpieces, totaling 84 projects, including outstanding projects from Singapore, Malaysia, and the UK. As the first stage kicked off during 25-27 September 2018, 24 teams were qualified for the semi-final round. After that, only final 12 teams were selected to compete in the final round, where the ‘Octopus’ team was named the winner of WOW Project 2018, and the ‘ThaiBev E-App’ team was named the winner of WOW Idea 2018.
THE WINNER OF WOW PROJECT 2018 AND SPARK INSPIRATIONS
Team: Octopus
Project: Sorting Line for Returnable Bottles

The team, consisting of staff from SCM, TBR and Bev tech, develops an automatic sorting line to sort returnable bottles and increase efficiency. The machine enables employees who previously sort used bottles to step up and became machine operators. The automatic bottle sorting line will be patented as an intellectual property of ThaiBev.
Values: The sorting line improves the efficiency of the sorting process, enabling breweries to answer to the increasing need of the market. The cost of bottle sorts also went down, while employees have better working environment, and were given a chance to step up from manual laborers to machine operators.
