Employee Survey

Survey Monitoring the Transformation Engagement

The Survey Monitoring the Transformation Engagement, carried out quarterly, to create a direct channel with employees, understanding their perceptions on the internal environment and important factors for the challenges of transforming the company. The survey is carried out through an internal online form, and its items are organized into five pillars: transparency and communication; leadership and protagonism; respectful and healthy environment; attitudes for transformation and agile mindset.

Based on the results observed in the 1st wave, held in March 2021, multidisciplinary groups planned and implemented initiatives to improve the internal experience, including:

– Activities to value care, well-being and diversity (monitoring covid cases and remote work experience; nutritional, postural, physical and psychological care online and free for employees; lectures on equity and inclusion, etc.).

– Actions to encourage engagement and self-development (compliment exchange program, valuing recognition among employees and lectures with external guests for self-development).

– Leveraging the customer focus, agile mindset and strategic alignment (content with strategic direction and internal communication campaigns to accelerate the focus on the customer experience and develop the agile mindset).

These actions contributed to an increase of nearly 3 p.p. between the 1st and 2nd wave held in June 2021.

We held the 3rd round of the research in November 2021 and, even after the changes, we have maintained the same internal engagement from the beginning of the year. All pillars slightly fell from the values recorded in the 2nd round, but employee engagement remained at a high level of more than 80%.

Diversity Census

The Diversity Census aims to map the company’s diversity demography and direct regionalized and assertive actions, also raising the perception of employees on recognizing Oi as a safe and plural environment.

Compared to the market, the results are superior in the gender and race pillars (Ethos 2016 – 500 Largest Companies).

Another expressive result is the fact that 82% of respondents perceive Oi as an inclusive environment.

Based on the results in the last census – carried out in March 2021 with 63% of Oi’s public, we guide actions to raise awareness and accountability for a safe environment for all people, such as structuring a Diversity calendar, training about unconscious biases and Brazilian Sign Language training for employees.

Remote Work Perception Survey

Remote Work Perception Survey

The Remote Work Perception survey aims to create a direct channel with employees to understand perceptions about the current remote work model to ensure the quality of life, transparency, productivity and onboarding. The survey is carried out through an internal online form to assess the improvements that have been implemented generally.

Based on the results in the last survey – carried out in May 2021, we developed a guide for remote work good practices to provide useful information that contributes to daily life on healthy life, practical organization, smart breaks, productive meetings and transparent communication.

With 68% of active employees participating, the survey generated the general perception that:

89% gained or maintained the quality of life in the remote work.

90% intend to keep their remote work for three days or more.

91% are interested in working from home after the quarantine.
