Neste Oil’s hiring rate in respect of permanent employees was 9.3% (9.9%) in 2014, and the leaving rate 15.6% (9.6%).
Neste Oil carries out an HR survey covering the entire personnel every other year. Based on the results of the survey, we develop our operations in terms of both business and personnel.
According to the survey made at the turn of 2013/2014, the employees believe in the company's future and consider their opportunities for personal development to be good. Compared to previous surveys, the indices of employee commitment and performance had developed favorably. The survey was sent to a total of 3,127 employees, and the response rate was good, 81.8%.
The results of the survey were reviewed under the leadership of supervisors in teams, and amongst other areas, concrete measures to develop well-being at work and management were pursued on the basis of them. The supervisors were trained to be able to discuss the results in their teams in as involving a way as possible and to integrate well-being at work even more closely to everyday work.
Neste Oil is currently developing a new HR system with the aim of harmonizing HR practices and setting personnel goals. Preparatory work related to the new system was carried out during 2014. The work to revise the system will continue in 2015.
Changes in our operations created a need also to modify our personnel resources. The employee-employer negotiations held in fall 2014 resulted in reduction of 203 people. A major part of the reduction need was covered by voluntary arrangements.
