COMPETENCE PROVISION IS MADE LOCALLY
Human resource issues are decentralized with a employee policy formulated nationally in adaptation to the country’s legislation. The operations are mostly located in smaller communities where the company is an important employer. Employees who are recruited locally are normally more motivated, which leads to lower staff turnover. An important part of the Human resource strategy as a decentralized group is to attract the right expertise locally. The recruitment activities with traditional recruitment is complemented with apprenticeships and new arenas where the right skills are considered to be found.

This is complemented by training initiatives for a large number of employees, as well as for external roofers/contractors seeking further training in the industry. To monitor employee satisfaction and commitment, performance reviews are conducted alongside regular employee surveys.
