Turnover was 29.3% in 2022, higher when compared with 2021.

The region with the highest turnover is the Americas, USA 46% and Brazil 26%.

The trend of year-on-year high turnover has been observed in the past 2 years. This is due to job market development, with increasing competition for talent, in all market segments and increase in the cost of life.

Salary and benefits, more than job profile and career path, play a decisive role in the decision making process, where potential candidates tend to focus on mostly on compensation.

The age range 18 to 40 houses the highest turnover, 18.4%. Seen through a different perspective, this is the age group with the highest hiring rate, 21.4%, especially in Operations.

The number of new hires increased by 144 (22%) when compared to 2021. There was also an increase in the hiring of women by 1.5%.

As mentioned, greater hiring rates are within age range 18–40. Countries with higher new hires % are USA and Brazil.

When we look at new hires versus turnover, our pattern continues to be aligned with our industry peers. Job opportunities are abundant and candidates, with specific skillsets, are few.

Plastic packaging is a competitive market for top talent people, especially in the Americas, with higher turnover and hiring rates.

Everyone has a voice. And it is heard…

Logoplaste SpeakUp Channel is an important channel for our teams to raise concerns that may not be easily resolved through other means, or face-to-face.

In 2022, Logoplaste promoted this whistleblowing platform through our internal channels, reminding employees that it is here for their wellbeing. The platform is accessible to all, in all countries and languages, through various means (phone, email, website), all the information is confidential and can be anonymous. Giving privacy to our teams is key to us.

28 concerns and enquiries were reported in 2022 (12 more than in 2021). These numbers indicate a trust employees have in the channel, using it for a wider range of topics than it is intended.  The most frequent concerns are related to “employee relations” (35.7%), followed by “discrimination”, “wage/hour issues” and “workplace violence/threats”, all weighing 14.3%.

Case closing time average went up to 79 days, due to the complexity of some incidents and Logoplaste’s strict adherence to follow procedures and protocol.  Although this KPI may seem high, it is an indicator of the HR Teams’ focus on this whistleblowing channel.

There is difficulty in investigating anonymous incidents. Logoplaste follows through and asks for more details, but anonymous whistleblowers rarely log in a second time to respond and help conclude the process. This tells us that, sometimes, the filled complaint may have been a spur of the moment, with high degree of emotion versus rationality, and once reported, the employee felt no need to follow-up.

Sharing EES results

Ron Gray, Tabler Station Site Director, hosted a meeting with his team to share and discuss the Employee Engagement Survey (EES) Results.

This is a very important step for each site to implement as it helps identify areas that require an action plan. Having everyone involved is also key, as it generates more ideas.
