Neste Oil provided employment to an average of 4,926 (5,030) people in Finland and overseas in 2011. As in 2010, the company focused on the systematic development of leadership, management, and wellbeing at work during the year. The international growth of the Neste Oil workforce typical of recent years slowed somewhat. Personnel were employed in a total of 14 countries as of the end of the year.
No major changes took place in Neste Oil’s HR management compared to 2010. The creation of a ‘winning culture’ – based on operational safety, engagement, performance, and being an attractive employer – within the company was defined as a long-term HR management goal as part of the annual update of Neste Oil’s strategy.
In line with company practice, HR management guidelines are reviewed and updated regularly, and a number of areas were reviewed during 2011, including the company’s HR policy, which provides the foundation for the more detailed principles and guidelines covering HR management. The key elements of the policy remained unchanged, although some content was brought up to date. The updated policy was published in December 2011.
What we did and achieved in 2011:
- Developing leadership and corporate culture, incl. leadership development programs.
- Long-term work on equality and promoting equality in the workplace.
- Developing wellbeing at work.
Goals for 2012
79% of respondents to Neste Oil’s annual employee satisfaction survey rated the management skills of their superior positively.
