The project for an expertise development strategy for Hansel’s personnel was continued in accordance with the plan in 2014. On the basis of the expertise survey, a training programme was assembled, referred to as Hansel Academy 2014–2016, which was launched in August. The goal is to enhance and diversify the company’s expertise-related resources. Lappeenranta University of Technology was selected as the partner.
A job satisfaction survey was conducted at Hansel during the latter half of 2014. Accordingly, well-being at work was found to be on a good level in the company, averaging 3.8 on a scale of 1–5 (3.7 in 2012). Managerial work is measured, for instance as part of the job satisfaction survey, and is being developed on the basis of its results. Training is regularly arranged for supervisors in connection with their work.
Hansel adheres to the guidelines on management and key employee rewards and incentives issued by the Cabinet Committee on Economic Policy.
