Personnel and social responsibility

Having skilled and developing personnel with a high level of well-being is a basic requirement for a successful expert organization. Personnel development, providing career opportunities and treating employees equally are at the core of Etteplan’s human resource management.

We survey our employee satisfaction 

Etteplan uses an annual personnel survey to assess the job satisfaction and well-being at work of its employees. In 2016, the survey was completed by 72 per cent of all personnel (76) and the results revealed substantial differences between countries. The results of the 2016 survey were at the previous year’s level. In Sweden, human resource management improved. Based on the survey, we produced country-specific development plans for improving the results. 

We provide extensive career and development opportunities

Providing career opportunities to our personnel is one of the guiding principles of our operations. The large scale of our operations provides good opportunities for working in various project teams that serve the world’s leading machinery and equipment manufacturers. Etteplan’s emphasis in personnel development is on learning on the job. The career path model is at the core of monitoring the professional development of our employees. 

Personnel development discussions and coaching program

Personnel development discussions are held annually and, in 2016, they covered more than 95 per cent of the company’s personnel, as in the previous year. In 2015, Etteplan launched a coaching program intended for managerial development. The program continued in 2016 with personal coaching and the implementation of the coaching program will continue in 2017. We measure the development of employees in managerial roles annually. 

Works councils for local agreements

Etteplan has works councils in all of its operating countries to deal with personnel-related matters locally. As the use of local agreements increases, the works councils play a central and active role, and they held a large number of meetings in various countries during the year. In China, we deepened our cooperation with the HR specialist FESCO, with a focus on developing working conditions in China.
