First-choice employer

At Polygon, people always come first. Our key resources are people, knowledge and technology – in that order. We believe that if our employees are engaged, they will perform well and then also generate satisfied customers. This is the foundation of our business philosophy – the Polygon Model – and a very central part of the “Our Responsibility” programme.

Decentralised Organisation

Polygon has a decentralised organisation and a flat structure, with clear accountabilities. Having the freedom to organise and control your own work decreases stress and increases motivation. Our idea is clear: to be effective, our employees must be encouraged and empowered to act independently when interacting with customers. Therefore, we make sure that everyone has the right competence, information and tools to make the right decisions without delay. We track this via the employee survey every year. In the employee survey from 2019, 91 percent stated that they feel empowered to make decisions when needed.

Engaged Employees

Being an attractive employer is essential, and Polygon conducts a Group-wide employee survey every year. This presents an opportunity for our people to express their views, wishes and concerns. All employees in all countries are invited to participate.

The 2019 results were above the industry benchmark in almost every area. We have a very high level of engaged managers, 62 percent. The indexes for engagement and leadership remain
high and are above benchmark, at 84 (83) and 78 (78) respectively.

Strategic Talent Management with the Polygon Academy

With the Polygon Learning Zone – the Group’s learning management system – Polygon provides employees with the right training and competence in a cost-effective and time-efficient way.

The Polygon Academy is our internal development programme for leaders. The capabilities of Polygon’s leaders are key to keeping and developing the competence of our employees, and ultimately to the company’s results and success. Therefore, we strive to recruit internally as much as possible. Several of today’s area managers and unit managers began their Polygon careers as technicians or team leaders.
