Inspired and motivated employees are crucial for business success. We want our employees to feel inspired by our business vision, products, their colleagues, and by Fiskars leaders. Inspiration needs to be led, and this is why we have chosen leadership as our internal focus area.
Fiskars' people strategy expects a lot of the Group's leaders. We believe that we can make a difference through our people, and front-line leaders are responsible for helping make this happen by driving employee engagement and satisfaction.
Outstanding leadership does not happen by accident. It requires skills, tools, and processes to ensure the highest standards of leadership. To support managers and to drive Fiskars' strategy, we have created a common performance management process for employee target-setting and development planning. The aim is that all Fiskars employees should have a clear understanding of what is expected of them and how they are progressing in terms of expectations, and that they should be rewarded for excellent performance.
Fiskars’ growth ambition and ongoing transformation require leadership that enables high performance, innovation and ongoing learning. At Fiskars, exceptional leadership is depicted in our ability to engage and develop our people to reach exceptional results. To support our leaders in their personal development we provide a wide portfolio of tools and promote a shared leadership culture through, for example, two global leadership development programs, Leadership Core and Leadership Essence.
Fiskars Leadership Core is targeted for all managers globally with the aim to build a common code in ways of leading our people and developing high performing teams.
Fiskars Leadership Essence program is targeted for our senior managers. It focuses on building a shared mindset, leading our people according to Fiskars values and driving the business through global growth.
