Kojamo achieved an excellent result in its 2018 personnel survey and received “Finland’s most inspiring workplaces” acknowledgment for the second time.
Corporate Spirit annually carries out a personnel survey among the most successful organizations in Finland and rewards the most inspiring workplaces. Kojamo is once again one of the most inspiring workplaces in Finland.
Shared values guide the company’s operations
Kojamo believes in operations based on values. The company’s values have been created together with the personnel and are very much reflected in the daily work. What has been created together is familiar, worth pursuing and helps to link the company’s values to one’s own work.
“Like all other results, the ‘Finland’s most inspiring workplaces’ acknowledgment has been achieved together. It would not have been possible without an aspiration to serve, a hunger to succeed and the courage to renew,” says Anu Nurro, HR Manager at Kojamo.
In the 2018 personnel satisfaction survey, the overall personnel satisfaction at the Group level was increased in particular by the efficiency and flexibility of units, communication, and engagement, managing one’s own work, and the company’s operating culture.
The employees especially appreciated the company’s efforts to enhance well-being at work, a good working environment and excellent flow of information, as well as the bright future prospects of the company.
“The response rate was very high, almost 90%, so the result can be regarded as very reliable,” Nurro says.
Morale meter reveals the vibes
The results of the personnel satisfaction survey have been carefully reviewed, together with the entire staff, as well as at unit or team level. The purpose of a thorough review is to ensure that we will not lose our strengths. Another aim is to find out ways to further improve other areas.
“We have already started to work on factors that have a significant impact on job satisfaction. Among other things, we have begun upgrading our tools, as this was mentioned in the survey as a development target,” Nurro says.
At the turn of the year, Kojamo has also introduced a morale meter to monitor the pulse of job satisfaction throughout the year. The purpose of monitoring the vibes is to provide up-to-date information on the personnel’s feelings and views in parallel with the personnel survey. The goal is to make every employee’s voice heard through an agile survey.
“This year, our focus will be in particular on ensuring that the results lead to active measures and the up-to-date information obtained through the ‘pulse measurement’ will help us take the necessary steps at a fast rate,” Nurro explains.
The results of the first pulse measurement are excellent. The most important workplace factors creating good vibes are great colleagues, having a say in matters related to your work and feeling that your work makes a difference.
