Training and education

G4-LA11

Percentage of employees receiving regular performance and career development reviews

TeliaSonera has a group-wide performance management process which targets 20,100 employees at all levels and units, regardless of gender and employee category, in total covering 75 percent of our employees. In 2016 the process will translate TeliaSonera’s strategic objectives into actions and is designed to support managers to set individual objectives, review and provide constructive feedback on individuals’ performance, reward strong performance and plan individual career and development to build the capabilities needed, short and long term.

In addition to the above, the majority of employees who don´t participate in the group-wide process take part of local performance and development planning processes, either non computer based or supported by local tools.
