The Business Case
Defining the Issue – The Global Perspective A global initiative, called FAST, was launched so as to establish a common set of values for all SONY employees. FAST stands for: FOCUS – on the wants of our customers and strategic priorities ACCOUNTABILITY – everyone is accountable to ensure we improve and succeed as a whole SPEED – working to stay ahead of our competitors TEAMWORK – more power – and greater results – when we work collaboratively
Defining FAST at the Company Level Empower employees to be accountable for their performance and future career path while upholding the SONY FAST values Provide managers with support to be able to hold themselves and their people accountable What was needed: A clear understanding, by all employees, of what success looks like (skills, knowledge and behaviors). We can do this by: Identifying performance drivers at different levels Creating a common language across SNEI Driving clear communication Reinforcing and rewarding along the way
Established baseline FAST index by integrating values-related questions in employee survey Indicator of high performing organization Benchmarked against global high performance companies Measured culture change progress: FAST awareness the first year Monitored and reported on FAST effectiveness from different perspectives: Business Unit Functional Other We will leverage the Global Employee Survey conducted annually to monitor and measure awareness and progress in operating and behaving our FAST Team Values Global Employee Survey Benchmarks Global Employee Survey
