Nordgold conducts an annual survey to assess employees’ opinions, engagement, loyalty, and motivation towards attaining their performance goals. Through the survey, employees have an opportunity to submit recommendations, express their attitude towards the Group, and discuss operating processes, while management, in turn, can identify areas in need of development and improvement. Based on the survey, an action plan for each mine is elaborated. In 2020 employee engagement rate increased by 12 points to 81%.
