Engaging our people

Listening to our employees and creating high levels of engagement and alignment are essential for the realization of our people strategy. Our local businesses have long used employee surveys to track engagement. More recently, we have started to apply a consistent approach across all countries and aligned our methodologies. To this end, we conducted a pilot survey in 2016 and have prepared a single global engagement framework that will be rolled out in early 2017.

A newly introduced survey methodology allows us to globally track and measure key areas on a quarterly basis. This will provide us with valuable information about our people’s engagement levels, their understanding and focus on the company’s plans and objectives, and the effectiveness of their managers.
