Competence development of personnel

Our aim is to be the most attractive employer in the industry and to offer our employees opportunities for development.

We invest in developing our personnel’s occupational well-being and continuous competence development. Furthermore, we aim to be an attractive employer and offer equal opportunities to our employees. We respect labour legislation and ensure that each employee is treated fairly. We also value diversity within our workforce.

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 high-quality supervisory work through training programs designed for different managerial levels. Our development programs support leadership competence development and network management.

It is important for us to listen to the feedback provided by our personnel and improve our operations based on that feedback. We regularly inquire about the job satisfaction, commitment to working at YIT, and the effectiveness of our supervisors. We want to ensure that we remain a great workplace where people feel comfortable and have a strong sense of accomplishment. We gather feedback from our personnel through various annual employee surveys.
