Employee engagement

Employee engagement is key to our competitive performance. Engaged employees help us meet our business goals and help make Philips a great place to work. We have used employee engagement surveys for over a decade to gather feedback and focus areas and have seen tangible results along our journey.

As announced in 2012, we survey Employee Engagement on a bi-annual basis, starting in 2013. In 2014 we implemented a brief, complementary, team-focused survey called My Accelerate! Survey (MAS).

We have observed and shown via research the  correlation between the Employee Engagement Index and the Net Promoter Score question “How likely is it you would recommend Philips as a great place to work?“ (the measurement that cumulatively covers emotional commitment, pride and active recommendation). We used the Net Promoter Score as a proxy for the EES results in 2014 which was based on survey results of some 17,000 employees. In 2015 we will perform a full Employee Engagement Survey again.
