HYBRID WAY OF WORKING HERE TO STAY

In 2021 a work from-home scheme was introduced making it possible to work from-home up to a maximum of 50% of the regular hours. This arrangement gives our Family members more flexibility and less travel time. However, for most of our Family members who work at our production sites, on-site work remains a necessity.

ABSENTEEISM DUE TO ILLNESS

Absenteeism due to illness for ROTO in 2021 was 7.9% (2020: 6.6%), well above our target of 4% or less. In consultation with our absenteeism supervisor agency, we hope to achieve our ultimate goal of 4% or less with a slightly different and more personal employee-oriented approach by the HR-responsible Family members. Lessons learned are discussed in the HR-community.

The absenteeism frequency of between 0.8 and 1.1 throughout the year, is on average a little better than in 2020 (0.90 respectively 0.95), but slightly higher than we would like.
