Company Profile

Even as innovations in computer science, imaging and communications transform the world, Xerox continues to keep pace.

In the last decade, we have become leaders in business process and IT outsourcing. We now offer global services that range from claims reimbursement and automated toll transactions to management of HR benefits and customer care centers.

Voice of employee survey

Evolving the Workplace

Our proprietary Voice of the Employee Survey allows managers to assess their employees' satisfaction with their job, work group, manager and Xerox as a whole.

Since 2009, we have surveyed 100% of our global population across 49 countries and in 26 languages. Each manager receives a personalized report to assist in developing action plans where needed. In addition, we capture global trend data and employee ideas.

We received 68,500 responses to our 2013 Voice of the Employee survey. We will administer the survey again in 2015.

See more detailed information on employee satisfaction surveys.


*In 2012, the survey was distributed to around 14,000 employees in Europe, Canada and our developing markets. All other years reflect a larger global population.

Addressing employee inquiries

Evolving the Workplace

The Sentinel Customer Satisfaction Assurance Systemtm, a Xerox proprietary Web-based polling/routing/reporting system, links employee inquiries or comments through the intranet with appropriate Xerox contacts to identify and track any comment, suggestion or unresolved problem for action.

The chart below displays the number of employee inquiries we received and routed for resolution. The decline in inquiries in recent years is due to the overall resolution of systemic issues and the ability for employees to provide comments/suggestions or raise a technical issue.


Employee Diversity – Women Employees

Evolving the Workplace

We gain a competitive advantage as we continue to draw on the experience and creativity of a well-balanced, diverse workforce. That means we're better able to understand and meet the changing demands for our products and services. Simply stated, a balanced workforce makes good business sense.

In the U.S., 53.2 percent of employees are women, and women represent 27 percent of executive and senior-level managers. Diversity reporting is not tracked in most other countries.

The chart below displays the percentage of executive and senior-level managers who were women over the past four years in the U.S.

Employee Diversity – Minority Employees

Evolving the Workplace

Employees with different ways of thinking – and different ways of perceiving our world – are employees who create innovative solutions. In a business like ours, whose lifeblood is fresh ideas, this variety of perspectives is a priceless resource – and a key to achieving critical business results.

Minorities represent 40.3 percent of employees and 12 percent of executive and senior-level managers in the U.S. Diversity reporting is not tracked in most other countries.
