They have conducted international employee satisfaction surveys with EUCUSA since 2008, showing continuous improvements in employee satisfaction, specifically in terms of leadership, and their overall employee satisfaction is very high.

5 new benchmarks could be achieved in EUCUSA’s international comparative database, for the statements “an active design of the future”, “a safe future of the company”, “knowledge of trainings being offered”, “ a positive climate for innovation” and “work life balance” (despite shift work).
