Since 2005 Pirelli has introduced the Group Opinion survey on the White Collars population in order to have a constant and straightforward feedback system from all the White Collars employees and to support the Company to draw and carry out plans and activities consistent with either the Business priorities and the employees needs.
"Your Opinion", the third Employee Survey of the Pirelli Group was conducted in 2010, involving all Group executives, managers and white-collar employees (the previous opinion survey was conducted in 2008).
Administered in the first 2 weeks of April 2010 through an on-line questionnaire available in 10 languages, the survey had a very satisfactory overall response rate (78%) and it showed same or better results in almost any of the categories analysed (which maintained comparability with the 2008 results).
Some of the most positive results showed that respondents had a strong sense of belonging to the Group, high levels of knowledge and skills involving Company products/services and a good level of operating efficiency.
The survey results were communicated to the Company's managers who were asked to distribute them, discussing its main issues and guiding the definition of specific action plans at both the local and Group level.
The employee opinion survey is conducted once every two years: thus a new, worldwide survery is scheduled in 2012.
