easyJet: You Matter

The challenge

 Delivering “Our Plan” at easyJet starts with energised people. Pre-pandemic, engagement scores were strong, but Peakon data showed there was room to improve. 

easyJet know that how people feel is the biggest predictor of performance. Companies in the top quartile for engagement achieve 21% higher profitability, 10% higher customer ratings and 70% fewer safety incidents compared with those in the bottom quartile. The extent to which easyJet staff believe the company cares about their wellbeing is highly correlated to both employee engagement and customer satisfaction (CSAT scores). 

easyJet work hard to innovate around wellbeing and give their teams support in everything from financial planning to triaging mental health, to creating environments where people can truly be themselves at work. But not everyone was aware of this, so we needed to create a campaign to show that how people feel matters. 

 You Matter is a communication and engagement campaign designed to drive awareness, confidence and uptake of Energy, Inclusion and Growth support opportunities.

 The result 

You Matter made sense and felt right for people. Contributors began sharing personal stories on internal channels encouraging openness around personal topics and making it okay to not be okay sometimes. The campaign received endorsement from easyJet’s CEO and COO, going a long way to promote a culture of wellness, inclusion and growth.
