The commitment to workplaces that promote good health gives results. The Group’s employees are healthier than ever. Norway Post now boasts one of the best working environment results in the industry, with fewer sickness absences, a lower level of disability, and a lower H-value (injuries per 1 million worked hours).

Fewer sickness absences
The total level of sickness absence for the Group was 0.7 percentage points lower in 2011 than in 2010. The rate of sickness absence for the year was 7.1%, compared with a goal of 7.6%. All the divisions achieved their goals for 2011, and thereby contributed to an overall reduction in sickness absences of 9%.

Satisfied employees
In the same period, the results from the organisation survey show that the Group has a good, stable working environment, with increased employee satisfaction. The Group achieved a total score of 78, which is two points better than the result for 2010.

Facilitation
In 2012 work was started to facilitate an even more healthy lifestyle within a working environment that promotes good health: Increased health competence, increased presence, increased employee satisfaction and several effective groups.
