The engaged employees are the foundation of Konecranes’ success. Therefore, we want to foster an environment where people enjoy their work, feel respected and trusted, and are provided with challenging and interesting responsibilities together with unlimited career advancement.
To ensure we are truly what we aim to be, Konecranes has been regularly conducting Employee Engagement surveys since 2007. The surveys' results give us a better understanding to improve our people’s satisfaction with their career aspirations and working environment. Furthermore, we are more capable of evolving with prevailing trends and anticipating future needs.
Konecranes employees are central to our success and bring our strategy to life. We are happy to see that the 2019 Employee Engagement Survey (EES) showed a positive trend for the majority of the results throughout all respondent groups. Our people are highly committed to developing Konecranes together. This is visible in the number of respondents to our employee surveys: in 2019 over 12,000 employees took part, that is around 74% of our total workforce.
Being the driver of your own career development
Over the years, Konecranes has established a strong result-driven, diverse and supportive working environment where our talented and engaged people are encouraged to be the driver of their own learning and career development. According to the results of 2019 EES, our employees are motivated by challenging and interesting projects, they enjoy their work, and they feel trusted by their manager and respected by their colleagues. We aim to help our employees improve their competencies and confidence at work, and therefore accelerate their professional growth and achieve their aspiration targets faster. Thus, we are proud and happy to see in the EES’s results this year that our employees feel their contribution is important for the team’s success and feel better supported in their professional development more than ever before, and hence are highly committed to the company.
"I am really proud of our employees’ commitment to Konecranes, the work they do and the service they provide for our customers. As a company we are committed to providing great jobs and opportunities for our current and future employees,” said Timo Leskinen, Senior Vice President, Human Resources.
Supporting Diversity and Inclusion at the Workplace
Being a global company, one of our top focus areas is to provide an international and professional working culture where all employees are equally and continuously offered opportunities to learn and to grow. Representing a multitude of cultures and speaking different languages, we are happy to see that in the EES 2019 survey, a majority of our employees agree that diversity and inclusion are not only rooted in company values but also reflected throughout our global workforce.
“Diversity and Inclusion is not a program or a short-term initiative, but rather our cultural soul. It has emotional resonance, valuing the uniqueness that all of us have. By being curious and welcoming difference, we can be a more innovative and attractive company and dynamic partner for our customers,” said Mara Zavagno, Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer.
Cultivating the Workplace of the Future
Moreover, we continue making Konecranes an even better place to work. We seek growth opportunities through innovation and digitization. Our innovation focuses not only on a product, technology and service solution, but also on new ways of working for our people. Accordingly, the regular employee engagement survey helps our company, departments and teams utilize the results to identify and address underlying concerns, increase workplace transparency, indicate trends and take immediate action when needed, and hence maintain the positive flow at work.
We want to keep offering our current and future employees the international working environment where they can deepen their professional knowledge as well as broaden their career paths. Everything we do, we do with passion and drive. This is what makes Konecranes a unique place to work.
