Under the moniker TAGisfaction, A1 Telekom Austria Group conducted a Group-wide employee survey for the first time in 2012. In the framework of TAGisfaction, employees use an online survey to regularly (bi-annually) and in their native language comment on their commitment, the extent to which they identify with the company as well as strategy and career development by means of five-tier scale. The survey is evaluated in collaboration with a market research institute which guarantees an independent and neutral evaluation.
The results of TAGisfaction are particularly incorporated into leadership requirements, human resources work, strategy planning and implementation as well as employee communications. The most recent survey took place in 2016.
