Posted: 22nd June 2021

MaxCap, the continuous improvement experts who help businesses engage, educate and empower their own people to participate in, and drive forward, transformational change, have published their workplace mental health comic book titled “A Day In the Life Of Doris”!

Released in September 2020 as a digital comic book, “A Day In the Life Of Doris” tells the story of a young woman’s struggle with the pressures of daily life, both personal and professional, and demonstrates how a few proactive changes in working practices, made by an employer, can help to dramatically improve their employees work-life balance and support a positive mental health environment.

At launch, the digital version was very well received with hundreds of copies being downloaded by businesses across Scotland, the UK and the USA within the first three months. Now, with face to face meetings and training beginning to resume across Scotland, MaxCap have published the comic book so that businesses can own a physical copy to read comfortably on their favourite chair with a hot drink when unplugged from the digital world.

MaxCap are experts in ‘Lean’ Methodology, made famous by Henry Ford, and later by Toyota, in automotive manufacturing throughout the 1900’s. However, MaxCap stand apart as they specialize in applying ‘Lean’ foundation techniques in those challenging and often overlooked areas of Service, and across the Service industry as a whole, teaching leaders the vital skills needed to engage their teams to raise their own performance bar and achieve sustainable growth.

With clients in professional services (including accountancy firms and law practices), technology (including high tech, infrastructure and software development), nuclear, and oil and gas, and with an average of 5x ROI (Return On Investment) within the first twelve months, there is no doubt that the team at MaxCap are masters of change!

If you have any questions about continuous improvement, or you would like a physical copy of “A Day In the Life Of Doris” sent out to your business for the coffee table, then reach out to the team at MaxCap via:
