Employee Engagement

In Randstad we hold a global employee engagement survey each year to suppot retention. This year 23.124 employees wolrdwide filled in the questionnaire of the People Survey. The participation rate went up from 74.7% (2010) to 80.7% (2011).

The survey measures key engagement drivers such as satisfaction, pride, intention to stay and likelihood to recommend. The outcomes help management determine which factors will most effectively raise engagement levels in each employee group.
In 2011 the survey showed that, while there is room for improvement, engagement is high, scoring 7.4 on a scale of 10. Employees also indicate that they are proud to work at Randstad, with 42% giving pride score of 9 or higher. Survey reports are treated as an opportunity to further dialogue about engagement at all levels within the organization. Engagement is further stimulated by a share purchase plan for all employees and a performance share plan for a group of senior managers
