Hesburger is a major employer
Each year, Hesburger employs thousands of employees in Finland and abroad. Majority of the new employees are young people who join our ranks as interns or part-time employees and work alongside their studies.
Recruiting and training the unemployed
Over the past four years, Hesburger has conducted several recruitment and training projects in co-operation with the Finnish Centres for Economic Development, Transportation and the Environment (ELY Centres) and Employment and Economic Development Offices (TE Offices).Through these projects, Hesburger has employed well over a hundred young, unemployed jobseekers.
Long-term employment relationships, few absences
Long-term employment relationships and minimal absences speak volumes about job satisfaction at Hesburger. This is the reason that employee satisfaction is so important to us and why we want to invest in it. Employee satisfaction is constantly measured and, using feedback, every effort is made to improve working conditions for each unit's needs.
Job satisfaction is also demonstrated by, for example, the fewest sick leaves and the longest employment relationships in the industry.
Training programmes encourage employees to apply for supervisor training. In 2017*, 86.2 % of all supervisors were women and 13.8 % men. The gender distribution of supervisors at Hesburger closely corresponds with the overall employee gender distribution, as 84.8 % of all employees in 2017 were women and 15.2 % men. We can indeed say that it is expertise and skill that counts at Hesburger, not gender. Ensuring equal opportunity is also monitored every year.
