Following a survey of all managers in 2019, in 2021 Swiss Prime Site invited all employees to complete the employee survey, which will be conducted annually from now on. The aim was to gather opinions around training and development. Across all employees, the topic was awarded an average of 70 out of a possible 100 points. Among managers, the score rose from 74 points in 2019 to 76 points. Performance appraisals – key to an employee’s development – scored 77 points. Managers scored them slightly higher, at 81 points, compared to 80 in 2019.
