Two personnel surveys were conducted at Digia in 2016. When our new President & CEO started in the spring, we asked our personnel what kinds of developments they would like to see. The open-ended questions received plenty of responses, providing the CEO with a comprehensive view of opinions at Digia. The responses also helped our businesses to set their own targets.
When our new organisation came into force in the autumn, we conducted a more extensive survey to measure personnel satisfaction. The commitment framework consisted of a range of different themes: Working together, Targets, The courage to evolve, Learning, Achievement, An esteemed company, Supervisors and Commitment. The response rate was good, 83 per cent. Working together and supervisory work were clearly seen as some of our strengths. We also measured commitment, achieving a score of 3.97 points (out of a maximum of 5). The results of the personnel survey were used to draw up 2017 development programmes for the entire organisation.
We can be proud of our commitment to Digia. The majority felt that their work was meaningful and they wanted to continue working at Digia. When it comes to our employer image, the survey also showed that Digia personnel are willing to recommend their employer and believe in the company’s future.
Further developments are still required in some areas, such as closer cooperation between Digia units, assigning roles in our new organisation, and the clarification of targets. In the future, we will be sharing our expertise to an even greater extent and working with our customers to overcome challenges even more successfully. As part of the ongoing mobilisation of our strategy, we will also continue developing our target-oriented management and common working methods.
