Personnel and organisation

On 31 December 2017, Hansel employed 94 people (75 on 31 Dec 2016 and 76 on 31 Dec 2015). The average number of personnel employed by Hansel in 2017 was 83 (73 in 2016 and 73 in 2015). The increase in the number of employees is due to the strategic choice of the company to offer, as a new service, the development of procurement activities, including the analysis of procurement data. At the end of 2017, women accounted for 52% of all personnel and 60% of Executive Committee members. The average age of employees was 42. At the end of the accounting period, 96% of all employees had permanent employment contracts (100% in 2016 and 97% in 2015).

Education-wise, 64% of employees hold a Master’s degree and 18% a Bachelor’s degree. 13% of employees had completed secondary education, and 5% had no vocational qualifications. The company’s incentive system covers all permanent employees. Hansel adheres to the guidelines on management and key employee rewards and incentives issued by the Cabinet Committee on Economic Policy.

In 2017, 28 new employees were hired, five of them on fixed-term contracts. During the year, ten employees left the company. Eight of these resigned, one retired, and one fixed-term contract came to an end. An exit interview is carried out with employees that leave, to receive feedback.

In 2017, the strategic focus was on the development of a customer and sales culture.

Hansel Academy, a competence development strategy project for Hansel’s personnel, was continued as planned. The training programme was assembled on the basis of a competence survey, and its purpose is to enhance and diversify the company’s competence-related resources. In 2017, the strategic focus was on the development of a customer and sales culture, and many of the company’s employees participated in coaching in order to promote a customer-driven operating culture. The employees participated in five training days on average during the year. Employee well-being and ability to work are analysed through a job satisfaction survey every two years. Training and discussion sessions are arranged for supervisors regularly in connection with their supervisory tasks.

Sustainable development, environmental factors and the grey economy

Within public procurement, themes relating to corporate responsibility and combating the grey economy are playing an increasingly important role. In its activities, Hansel adheres to the principles of corporate responsibility, in line with the government policies. Corporate responsibility reporting is integrated with the company’s annual reporting practices and provides detailed coverage of all measures related to responsibility.
