Staff save Mini pounds 10m.
Every employee at the plant must come up with three ideas a year to improve business and save cash.
Ingenious staff came up with more than 14,000 ideas last year, 11,000 of which were put into practice.
Suggestions ranged from simple things such as saving unnecessary paper to improving efficiency with new equipment.
The production line is stopped for 90 minutes each month to allow workers to put forward new ideas.
