Our People goals and results

We recognize that our people are our greatest asset. Our goals reflect our ambition to maintain an inclusive culture that attracts people and ensures they can develop and thrive in our organization.

Our goals and how we’re doing

In the People area, we have three goals:

  • Our employees should agree we have a work culture of respect, fairness and openness. The level at which employees agree with the statement should be above a global benchmark for such employee surveys.
  • Our employees should agree there is opportunity to learn and grow in the company. The level at which employees agree with the statement should be above a global benchmark for such employee surveys.
  • To achieve an improved gender balance, with 30% women by 2030. 

How we're doing

  • The level at which employees agreed with the two statements in 2019 and 2021 was above the global benchmark for such survey questions.
  • The employee survey results are shared across the entire organization, with each department expected to make an action plan for improvement on the results.
  • Even with these positive results, we must work continuously to strengthen and maintain our culture of respect, fairness and openness.
  • In 2020, the percentage of women in the company increased from 19.8 to 20 percent.
  • We still have some more work to do to ensure our workforce reflects society's diversity.
