Since it started to measure it, the Group has had a very high level of employee engagement. To monitor the drivers of engagement, Pernod Ricard conducted the fifth edition of its bi-annual employee opinion survey “iSay” in June 2019 in partnership with Willis Towers Watson. In this edition, 85% of employees completed a questionnaire (97% online) of over 100 questions available in 35 languages, a consistently very high response rate. Each version of iSay is similar to

the previous ones to measure progress. The 2019 edition indicated an engagement level of 88%, far above other businesses in the Fast-Moving Consumer Goods sector. Pernod Ricard affiliates are responsible for addressing the areas most relevant to them and action planning against them. Moreover, this commitment is visible through low and stable voluntary departure and absenteeism rates.
