Goals

17

Increase engagement and drive inspirational leadership by achieving a goal of 75% of team members rating their leader as inspiring
In FY17, 82% of employees rated their leader as inspiring. The survey was sent to 50% of the employee population and was inclusive of heritage Dell and EMC. Moving forward, it will be sent to 100% of the Dell Inc. population.

18

Support an inclusive culture by engaging 40% of our global team members in employee resource groups by 2020
As of the end of FY17, 23% of team members are engaged in employee resource groups.

19

Encourage eligible team members to enroll in flexible work programs, increasing global participation to 50%
In FY17, 15% of our employees participated in our flexible work programs. This percentage only reflects those formally enrolled in a Dell program, while many more participate in an informal manner. While the absolute number of participants grew in FY17, the percentage was significantly impacted by the addition of heritage EMC team members. We have already aligned our heritage flexible work programs into one common program, and will be encouraging work flexibility across the company.

Increase university hiring to a rate of 25% of all external hiring
University hiring made up 20% of new hires in FY17.

In FY17, we continued to be recognized as an Employer of Choice, garnering awards in over 20 countries. On Great Place to Work’s® World’s Best Multinational Workplaces list, EMC ranked 4th globally, and Dell was listed in the top 10 for five individual countries. Dell increased its overall Glassdoor ranking by 0.1, to 3.6 out of 5.
