Employee engagement is an important part of the Lexmark community and culture. We have worldwide Quarterly All Employee meetings in addition to regularly scheduled departmental staff meetings. These meetings allow all employees--individual contributors and managers--to hear directly from senior leaders and to have opportunities to ask direct questions and seek clarification. Senior leaders regularly post blogs and videos on our internal social media platform, and respond to comments and questions posted by Lexmark employees. These interactions keep employees informed and engaged.
