Well-being At Vaisala, we want to promote a culture that supports the well-being of our employees and good collaboration at work. Our employees value the opportunities for good work-life balance as well as the meaningful challenges and outstanding supervisory work. At Vaisala, we regard meaningful work, good team spirit, great leadership, balanced workload and safe working conditions as important elements of well-being. We believe that each individual has the most essential impact on his or her own well-being. The goal of our well-being activities is to support our professionals in managing their work, ensuring the sufficient recovery and leading healthy lifestyle in general. We arrange and fund local activities to support the well-being and health of our people, such as the Vaisala FIT program in the U.S. and sports and recreational clubs in Finland. Keeping Track of Well-being Employee satisfaction and well-being are measured regularly at Vaisala to better understand the views of employees throughout the company and to keep abreast with possible changes and trends in our employees’ attitudes. The survey is commissioned from a research company to guarantee the confidentiality of responses. The response rate in 2016 was 85% and more than 1,300 employees took part in the survey. The results showed that Vaisala employees are proud to work at Vaisala, find their own work meaningful and feel professional in their own field of expertise. Great Leadership One of Vaisala’s key strengths is the competence of its middle management and team leaders. They regularly score above our peer companies in annual personnel surveys. We invest in good leadership by offering comprehensive training for our managers and supporting them in their work. Many of our development programs focus on generating great leadership, fostering a healthy workplace culture, and supporting a good work-life balance.
