Winning with our people
Every single employee has a role to play in the change management work being carried out by BillerudKorsnäs.
The new organisation, comprising three divisions with full responsibility for results, is an important step in deriving maximum benefit from the good conditions for profitable growth that the company has identified.
Clear expectations of management
Our managers are the people who foster a climate of change, which is why in spring 2018 we began work to set out in more detail what is expected of BillerudKorsnäs’ managers. 150 of our managers from around the world were involved in the work carried out with the aim of ensuring that we are always the best employer we can be – attracting, engaging and developing managers and employees. The result was the Sustainable Leadership concept, in which all managers in the Group will be trained in.
Employee survey encourages
The major Group-wide employee survey conducted every two years was carried out in 2018. One development area is to better follow up the results of the employee survey, as there are strong links between working with the results and employee engagement.
Skills for the future
During the year a survey was carried out to identify the skills needed to be able to focus our strategic work with employer branding and recruitment towards the right target groups. In 2018, we also employed our own recruiters who are proactively seeking potential candidates for our vacancies, started a trainee programme for specific occupations and graduates, tailored mentorships, development and leadership programmes for all levels and offered work placements and summer jobs.
