Performance Management System

SKFH formulated the "Regulations Governing Performance Management and Development" to set goals, conduct performance reviews and performance evaluation every year. Performance management is not only aimed at checking that whether employees have achieved the goals set at the beginning, but the way they achieved the goals, so we include function evaluation in the performance evaluation to measure the behaviors of employees at work. And, in order to implement the policy of different rewards and remuneration for different talents, and to strive to maximize the benefits to be brought by administration of the company's overall human resources and development of resources utilization, we, after collecting performance evaluation results, displayed the annual performance of the employees at various "job levels" and ranked their contributions to the organization, and took annual performance evaluation results as the important basis for determination of key talents, adjustment to remuneration, distribution of performance awards and other HR-related decisions. In 2022, except for the persons taking extended leave, all employees of SKFH have accepted the performance reviews, with the view to continuously improve employees’ individual performance at work and the company’s overall business performance, so as to assist the employees and the company to grow together.

Long-term Incentive Measures

And, we incorporate sustainable performance indicators in the company's operating KPIs and track them regularly. We hope to improve the performance of corporate governance, talent retention, environmental management, and social participation, through the process of motivating employees to achieve KPIs, to further improve the evaluation on the company by external stakeholders. In addition, we kept provide employee stock ownership trust in 2022, in order to improve employees’ benefits and corporate sustainable business, help employees to save and accumulate wealth to ensure a stable life, and keep employee’s cohesion to improve comprehensive operating efficiency and enhance shareholder’s rights and interests. The company encourages employees to invest fixed amount in the company's stocks on a regular basis for long term, through 100% relative allocation, to share operating results and value growth.


Employee Engagement Survey

To fully understand each employee's views on the company and work-related matters, SKFH commissioned third party to conduct employee engagement survey since 2016 to understand employees’ recognition of the company and their suggestions. The survey was conducted anonymously, in order to improve employee’s willingness to complete the survey and ensure that employees can express their opinions faithfully. We complete the engagement survey of all employees every two years. 2021-2022, we completed an engagement survey of all employees at SKFH and its subsidiaries, the response rate of the survey during the period is 95%, and the overall engagement is 73%. And meetings were held subsequently to develop improvement plans for the management team to use as the basis for continuous improvement and to maintain the sense of cohesion and recognition among employees for the company.
