Communication with employees is an important part of the Lexmark community and culture. We strive to make that communication a true discourse, rather than a single channel, one-way dissemination of information. For example, Lexmark managers hold engagement ("stay") conversations with individual employees and round tables with employee groups. This commitment results in true engagement with employees that in turn results in mutual goodwill. The following are just a few examples of employee engagement at Lexmark.
Quarterly, a CEO update meeting is held for all employees that ends with an open question and answer session for the CEO and his direct reports.
Throughout the year, in an effort to keep employees informed on the many aspects of Lexmark's business activities, the Company holds "Town Hall" meetings, wherein various members of senior management report on a wide range of subjects. These include general business updates, marketing and product strategies, results on initiatives, research and development progress and many other topical issues. Question and answer sessions are included.
