Benchmarking our progress
In May 2019 in collaboration with ‘People Insights’, we carried out our first annual employee survey which provided us with baseline data from which to measure and track progress year on year.
There was a high level of participation (82%) and expectations about management’s response to feedback were high.
Employee engagement level was also high at 84% and the drivers of engagement (the sense of purpose, quality, confidence in leadership responsiveness, development opportunities and having interesting work) are all strong. These trends were less positive at divisional and company level indicating clear areas where action and improvements are needed.
We intend to carry out this survey annually to help inform the work we do to support our people reach their personal potential and deliver success for Benchmark.
