YIT creates more attractive and sustainable urban environments by building housing, business premises, infrastructure and entire areas. Our long history and our organisational culture are the foundations for stable development. The key element of our corporate culture is to value every employee's contribution and competence and guarantee possibilities to develop their competences further.
We succeed, because we care about our personnel's development opportunities, effective work atmosphere and wellbeing.
Our employees are highly engaged
and contented with leadership
We want to regularly hear about the well-being of our personnel, and how motivated and committed they are to their work, and how encouraging our leadership is. Our goal is to make sure that YIT continues to be a great place to work also in the future – one where people feel happy, and do their work with passion.
One of our development tools is our personnel survey, YIT Voice, which is organized annually in all the countries in which we operate.
In 2017 89% of our personnel completed the survey. Based on the results, engagement has developed favorably from 82% in 2016 to 86% in 2017. Employees are overall satisfied with YIT as an employer, and 86% of them would recommend YIT as a great place to work. Leadership is perceived to be on a high level (Leadership index 2017: 83%), especially appreciating superiors’ support and care for wellbeing.
