Employee Engagement Survey - The Results Are In!

Firstly, a big thankyou to the nearly 900 staff that participated in the 2018 Employee Engagement Survey (EES) to provide feedback on a wide range of topics about their experience in working at Perisher. Having such a big number of staff complete the survey provides an excellent cross-section of views on how to improve our efforts to provide you with an Experience of a Lifetime.

Perisher made improvements on its scores in 10 of the 12 categories that make up the EES compared to the 2017 survey results with significant improvements in Leadership and Employee Development, which are areas we have worked hard on over the last 12 months.
While the overall results have been pleasing, the EES identified a number of opportunities for improvement and work has commenced with Managers to discuss the results and to develop plans to make these improvements. As part of this process we will be developing appropriate staff communications to assist staff understand the results and contribute to the discussion about how to make Perisher a better place to work.

Staff Feedback - Paavo

Have  just spent the last 4.5 days skiing at your resort, mostly at Smiggins with my family. I would just like to let you know that all of your staff, manning the lifts were excellent.
I also did 4 lessons with Paavo, and found him to be the best instructor I have ever had, he is a total credit to your organisation.  My skiing improved dramatically under his tutoring. I was very impressed with his skills, knowledge and patience. I had a great time, thanks so much for everyone's efforts in making my week brilliant.  Thank you from Craig!
