Our approach

Healthy and competent employees are a key resource for us. We want to support and develop the expertise of our personnel at all levels of the organization. Our operating environment changes constantly, and training and coaching are an integral component of our personnel development.

We also invest in quality of supervisory work with training programs designed for different managerial levels. Our development programs support leadership competence development and network management. Training is also provided in English for managers from the Group’s operating countries.

We want to regularly hear about the well-being of our personnel, 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. Development feedback is gathered in each operating country with different types of personnel surveys.

YIT trainee

Long-term work with students

It takes more than school to become a construction industry professional. Recognizing this, we offer some 800 trainee positions and summer jobs to young people each year. We focus on comprehensive introductory training, communicating our values, way of working and competencies as well as safety for trainees.

We collaborate actively with levels of education from vocational school and university students. In the YIT Path training programs, both future employees and clerical workers will be able to increase their skills. In addition, in YIT Studies program we offer university students the opportunity to complete their degree and learn from YIT's experienced staff during study and traineeships periods.
