Employee engagement refers to the strength of the mental and emotional connection employees feel toward the work they do, their teams, and the organisation as a whole. Through our annual employee engagement survey, Compass, all our employees are encouraged to share their thoughts on a wide range of topics, from work-life balance, wellbeing and social responsibility to leadership and performance climate.
By learning what employees share about their business area, organisation, leaders and colleagues, appropriate actions can be taken to create a better working environment for everyone. In 2021 the survey’s completion rate was 76 percent, which showed a decline of nearly four percent compared to 2020. The survey consisted of a total of 42 scaled questions and two open-ended ones. The category with the highest score was Team Climate with the favourability of 82 percent. The overall favourability for sustainability-related questions was 81 percent. In addition to the Compass survey, a monthly People Pulse survey was also launched during the year to monitor the wellbeing of the employees and their coping with the difficult conditions. The surveys give the employees a chance to anonymously share how they are feeling and how well they are coping with the current circumstances.
Moreover, people analytics are continuously developed to better support different processes and to achieve desired outcomes and targets. Pivotal HR dashboards and metrics are provided for HR Business Partners to support them in their decision making and planning.
