To build an engaged workforce and provide a positive employee experience we recognize it is more important than ever to understand and act upon employee ideas, needs and concerns.
In our all-employee yearly survey we capture feedback to improve the work experience at Sandvik. The process includes both the survey and a team performance dialogue where actions from the survey results and the dialogue are set.
Employee engagement index
In the 2022 survey, the Sandvik Employee Engagement Index showed a score of 78 percent.
In addition to the yearly surveys, we also conduct quarterly pulse (QPulse) surveys. The purpose is to measure employee satisfaction and engagement levels more frequently.
In combination with the yearly survey, the QPulse survey gives us both deep and real-time insights for our future improvements in employee experience and satisfaction.
Examples of actions taken based on survey results
Several actions have been taken in different parts of our organization, depending on the survey results for each unit or department. Examples are:
- Implementation of a workshop called Balance Journey to reduce an increasing level of stress in some departments.
- Regular Q&A meetings with senior managers to encourage employees to engage in two-way communication.
- D&I webinars to increase the understanding of how teams benefit from inclusion, for example when it comes to innovation.
