Agnico Eagle Employees Confident About the Future
Every three years since 2011 we have measured the overall level of engagement and satisfaction of our employees with an engagement survey covering employees in Canada, Finland and Sweden. The 2017 engagement survey results have improved compared to 2014 and are very positive compared to the other companies that participate in Mercer Mining and Oil & Gas engagement surveys.
In 2017, 90% of employees completed the survey as compared to 86% during the last survey in 2014. Other highlights include:
- Engagement levels in 2017 increased to 85% from 81% in 2014
- Employee confidence levels in 2017 that management will act upon the survey results increased to 77% compared to 71% in 2014
Employees gave us high marks for management leadership and direction; leadership and commitment to employee health and safety; employee satisfaction and commitment; and community impact and social responsibility.
Employees also told us we need to improve our focus on career growth and job security; compensation and performance management; as well as remain vigilant about our corporate vision, culture and values.
Nicolas Bolduc, Regional HR Manager/Global Employee Relations and Engagement, says, “This is our third global survey and we’re pleased that employees express a strong belief in the Company’s future and their pride in working for Agnico Eagle. As we grow the Company, they want us to stay true to our vision, culture and values, and keep and continue to strengthen the collaborative relationship with employees. They want to understand the career opportunities available to them and they indicate we need to explain our compensation programs better. We hear them loud and clear, and action plans are underway to address these opportunities for improvement.”
The survey is conducted with employees across Canada, Finland and Sweden, while our Southern operations participate in Mexico’s Great Places to Work annual engagement survey.
