Manager's challenge: How would you increase your employee satisfaction?
Are you curious about what it is like to be a manager? If yes, this challenge is for you! No more theories, here comes a real topic our managers have to deal with every year, when they receive feedback from their employees. What would you do in their place?
Every year employees
complete an anonymous questionnaire where they give feedback. They answer
questions about how they feel in the company and how they like their jobs. They
rate if they are satisfied with the management, career opportunities and
collaboration with other colleagues. Such questionnaire is called Employee Engagement
Survey and is the moment of truth for any company and its management.
Once this data is
collected, the analysis starts. Managers look into the results and also organize
workshops with the employees to come up with ideas for improvements, which are implemented.
The reason behind is simple: satisfied employees are necessary for the success
of any company.
So what are the numbers
saying to you?
After accepting the
challenge, you will receive the Employee Engagement Survey data, which
summarize the employee responses (this short document will be sent to you via email). Your task will be to analyze the data and

About Swiss Re:
Swiss Re was established in 1863 and in 2007 Swiss Re Bratislava became a part
of it. Since then we have managed to grow rapidly and our office in Bratislava
currently occupies around 1200 employees. In 2016 we received the Slovakia
Best Employer award from Aon.
Most of our work at Swiss Re is concerned with reinsurance. Simply said, it’s
insurance for insurance companies. But, of course, it isn’t that simple. It’s a
complex and fascinating business that draws on insights from every scientific
discipline. Many of the risks the world faces today are far too great to be
borne by insurance companies alone.
Did you know that Swiss Re was
the lead insurer of the World Trade Center during the September 11 attacks or
that we provide coverage for some of the most well-known entertainment and
sporting events in the world such as Olympic Games or FIFA World Cup?
Swiss Re also supports
sustainability and renewable energy innovations. Did you know we insured Solar
Impulse, the first solar airplane, which flew around the world?
