1 PLG Viewpoint Engagement Survey 2010

2 Background The PLG Viewpoint Engagement Survey was introduced in June 2008 It is an important temperature check in assessing the engagement levels of the PLG and measuring the extent to which the Values have been embedded Gathers feedback across 10 topics – Contribution & Recognition, PaperlinX Values, Behaviours, Culture, Leadership, Communication, Development, Rewards, Satisfaction and Business Strategy Originally planned to be performed on an annual basis, however no survey for 2009 due to a need to focus on business priorities. Survey re-launched in September 2010 So why focus on engagement? o Engagement is highly correlated to key business measures, including productivity and retention, customer satisfaction, total shareholder return (TSR), and sales growth o Employees who are most committed perform 20% better and are 87% less likely to leave o Organisations that have improved their engagement level have realised corresponding improvements in their business success measures o Links to alignment and understanding of business strategy

3 Viewpoint Results Response rate = 78% Strengths (75% or above favourability) o Behaviours 88% favourability o Culture 86% favourability o Contribution and Recognition 81% favourability o Business Strategy 83% favourability o Rewards 75% favourability Opportunities (less than 75% favourability) o Leadership 71% favourability o Development 69% favourability o Communication 66% favourability o Satisfaction 62% favourability o Values 62% favourability

4 Viewpoint Results Themes of open/ verbatim comments: o Need increased strategic leadership to combat decline in paper industry - can no longer afford to blame external factors o Must identify new markets and growth opportunities o Increase sense of urgency re change and critical business issues - we are not responding fast enough o Turn up the pressure on accountability and poor business results o Must do a better job of managing costs in the business o Need to increase our performance management abilities to deal with poor performers

5 Viewpoint Actions Action Plans 2008 Too many! About 19 globally plus Regional actions Global actions identified included: o Developing and implementing change and project management framework to assist leaders o Remeasuring LSI 360s for the PLG o Conducting local management Values workshops For obvious business reasons we did not progress many of the actions However did make progress in areas such as: – Embedding the Values in HR processes – Implementing change and communication frameworks (particularly PPXE)

6 Viewpoint 2010 The survey comprised: o 70 statements separated into 10 topics - same as 2008 for trending purposes o 4 open questions (the previous survey only included one open question) o 3 demographic questions Respondents asked whether they strongly agree, agree, mixed, disagree or strongly disagree with the statement The survey was administered and analysed by Snap Surveys, a UK Survey Software company The survey was open from the 15 th September to 28 th September 2010

7 Viewpoint 2010 – How to view the results A statement is classified as favourable if the respondent either agreed or strongly agreed to the statement If a topic is over 75% favourability it is listed as a strength. An opportunity is below 75% favourability. A notable change is a statement that is +5% points or -5% points different from the favourability score for 2008

8 Viewpoint 2010 – Executive Summary Marginal reduction against 2008 results but should be viewed as incredibly positive given the business environment of the last 2 years Overall favourability across the PLG of 73% against 74% in 2008 Strong results overall for Culture, Business Strategy, Behaviours and Contribution & Recognition Some opportunities in Communication, Development and Rewards (as is likely to have been expected) – however these results are not poor Significant opportunities and improvement required for Values and Satisfaction as both have been consistently low for 2008 and 2010

9 Viewpoint 2010 – Executive Summary The results suggest there is a disconnect between the individual and PaperlinX – I vs PaperlinX – for example: o I perform well but question if PaperlinX will be successful o I communicate to my team but question whether PaperlinX shares ideas well and communicates sufficiently o I put in above and beyond what is required and as such believe we are under too much pressure with a limited work-life balance o I care about my team but question PaperlinXs commitment to caring for its people

10 Viewpoint 2010 – Executive Summary Areas for focus for 2011 from the results appear to be: o Improve communication and knowledge sharing across the Groups o Seek ways to better embed and embody the PaperlinX Values amongst the PLG o Improved employment brand of PaperlinX and the PLG o Stronger leadership in the areas of change management and delivery of strategic plans

11 Viewpoint 2010 – Executive Summary Notable reductions in overall favourability for Europe and ANZA o Attributed to worsening scores across the board particularly Values, Development and Satisfaction o Most notable across Europe Divisional Office which saw reductions across most of the topics – notable exception was culture which remained high Improvement for Group Offices overall favourability o Culture, Business Strategy, Rewards, Contribution & Recognition and Communication all improved from 2008 o Development and Values dropped but not enough to reduce favourability below 2008 levels North America remains the most engaged region but overall favourability did drop from 2008
