We are enhancing common Caverion culture and good
foundation for the best workplace.
Right people in right places
As people are at the heart of our business strategy and success,
we need to be able to attract and retain the right people and offer
them an interesting and motivating working environment as well
as opportunities to learn through interesting job assignments.
Our employees’ positive experiences form the basis of our
employer image. In addition, we promote Caverion by being
active on social media, attending recruitment fairs in educational
institutions, arranging student excursions and hackathon events
for innovations, and taking part in various campaigns that
increase awareness of our industry, our company and our way
of working. We always aim to recruit the most qualified and
Opportunities for students
In 2018, we employed approximately 1,000 summer workers,
apprentices, thesis students and trainees.
Trainee programmes and thesis cooperation give us a great
opportunity to be involved in the professional development
of young students. In fact, trainee programmes constitute an
important channel of recruitment for Caverion. Many of our best
professionals first joined the company as trainees.
In order to develop education in our industry, we support
cooperation with schools and institutes of higher education.
Some of our employees even give classes at educational
institutions. In particular, we cooperate with vocational schools
and universities of applied sciences in engineering.
Encouraging professional growth
Caverion encourages its employees to pursue professional
growth and supports them in learning and developing their skills
further. The company uses the 70/20/10 model, which is based
on the assumption that 70% of learning takes place on the job,
20% comes from learning from others, and 10% comes from
Caverion uses a performance development process to set
individual strategy-related targets and development plans for
all employees. The performance development process provides
an opportunity, for both managers and employees, to give and
receive feedback on performance, cooperation and leadership.
As part of the performance development process, every person
is expected to do an individual development plan to develop
their current and future competences.
In 2018, we organised a total approximately 3,900 training
events, which had 33,000 participants. Safety training
programmes had approximately 17,500 participants whereas
technical discipline, general skills training and education
programmes approximately 14,500 participants. The high
increase in participants is due to the introduction of several
e-learning modules in 2018.
