November 2012

Our very top-level scores on our annual Employee Attitude Survey (EAS) were very positive overall. The scores for all but one of the nine engagement driver themes in the survey have increased in the last year. Positive responses to Diversity related questions have also increased. The largest increase is in 'Leadership and Managing Change' (up 8%). This is where our scores have been quite challenging in recent years, so this progress is especially welcome.
