Proactive efforts for a healthy, safe and stimulating work environment for employees and suppliers are a prerequisite for well-being and commitment.
John Mattson strives to offer a workplace that is characterised by a healthy approach to work, where staff enjoy working and are highly committed, and where each employee has a key role and the ability to influence. The foundations of our corporate culture exist in our core values that are based on taking professional and engaged long-term actions. The year’s employee survey showed very strong values for commitment and employee satisfaction. 90% of employees viewed their work as highly motivating.
By continuously following up on our values and operational targets and making them visible, we create motivation throughout our organisation and clarify our priorities. Employees see a clear link between their own goals and operational goals, and we manage an open and supportive climate providing feedback and appreciation in every-day work to inspire leaders and employees to actively contribute to the overall goals.
John Mattson continues to drive equality and equal treatment efforts in a goal-oriented manner, which is an important success factor for our ability to develop as a company. We maintain our position on Allbright’s green list for equal management groups and work toward equal representation in all personnel groups.
Participation creating commitment
To steer John Mattson toward its goals and strengthen the feeling of participation, a bonus programme has been in place for all employees since 1997. All employees are also included in our development efforts by participating in workshops to contribute and provide their opinions on important strategical issues.
During the year, we conducted dialogues on initiatives in our prioritised sustainability areas and action plans based on the results of our tenant surveys.
A learning organisation
The ongoing digitalisation means a change of working roles. To ensure an increase of knowledge, internal training and coaching in digital tools and working methods is important, particularly as we are simultaneously developing our property portfolio. The organisation has been strengthened by recruiting to
several new roles to meet the need for expertise for our journey of growth.
One measure that we need to improve our management of in the coming years is launching efficient digital tools that strengthen our prerequisites for maintaining dialogue and providing service. Digital tools also have the potential to simplify parts of our internal communication.
Safety, health and well-being
We work systematically with physical and psychosocial work environment issues with the goal of preventing accidents and work-related illness. We are aware that good health and well-being strengthens commitment, and to promote health, a preventive health care hour is offered each week encompassing massage, training and a health assessment. When shared activities are arranged, we always strive to include a health perspective in a natural way. Initiatives have included a conference along Sörmlandsleden (theSörmland trail) during the year where we discussed the company’s journey of growth during a hike.
It is equally important to care for the health and safety of our partners. For the procurement of contracts, we
partake in dialogue with our partners and address how John Mattson expects that safety should be taken into consideration before a contract is signed. Since January 2021, John Mattson has been a member of Håll Nollan, an industry initiative in which just over 80 participants are working together toward the goal that nobody need injure themselves in the workplace.
