At the beginning of the year, the Group’s organisational structure and resources were directed to boost growth. In February, the company started statutory cooperation negotiations in Finland, concerning 115 employees, in order to secure its competitiveness and profitability. The negotiations concerned the Group services as well as the Healthy Food Division’s marketing, product development and finance department. The negotiations resulted in the termination of 20 employments. The terminations were carried out through retirements, voluntary arrangements and redundancies, and through the termination of fixed-term employment contracts. In addition, eight employments were terminated in connection of the improvement of Polish operations. New recruitments were made, e.g, for the marketing targeted at healthcare professionals.
Raisio complies with the regulations of the International Labour Organization (ILO) and with local collective agreements, regulations and laws related to work in the countries where the company operates. At Raisio, 52 per cent of the personnel are within collective agreements. HR management is also guided by internal policies and plans for, e.g. competence development and equality.
The Raisio Code of Conduct guides our daily work and define our unified way of working. The online training on the Code of Conduct is available in Finnish, English, Polish and Russian. The entire staff are expected to complete the training.
In terms of social and HR matters, Raisio considers workplace accidents and the stability and availability of competent workers as its major risks. Risks are managed by developing the occupational safety culture and by determinedly promoting competence management and well-being at work.
