Employee engagement

The excellent results of Metso’s employee engagement survey PeoplePulse in 2018 clearly show that we have a work community where employees can grow as professionals, learn from one another and feel empowered. 87% of Metso people globally answered the survey, out of all responses 88% feel strongly engaged in their work and to Metso as an organization. The survey results indicate that our people feel their work is challenging and fulfilling. It provides them an opportunity to develop and grow as professionals, and work with leading technology solutions offered to our customers. In addition, people enjoy working with a global network of colleagues where people truly support and respect each other.

However, the survey is much more than a method to measure work atmosphere. By getting everyone involved, it is an important tool for each team to develop their daily work. They can actively utilize the results for developing their way of working. They are responsible for implementing changes in their daily work and following up on them.
