ECIT is a people’s business, and our employees are central to everything we do, with their dedication and talent as the Group's main assets.

Our business model thrives on an entrepreneurial mindset, decentralized operations, and cooperation across entities.

ECIT is committed to securing a safe workplace, ensuring employee engagement, limiting employee turnover, and providing talent-based advancement opportunities for all employees on an equal basis.

Learning and development

Suitable and structured training and development are key to attracting and retaining skilled employees, and in ECIT, unlocking personal potential is a key focus area.

We continue to develop our internal training programs, including ECIT Academy, ECIT Talent, and ECIT Associate.

ECIT Academy operates across countries and divisions and is a combination of courses and case-solving, including personal development plans in close cooperation with managers.

ECIT Associate is specialized for our accounting division. The first group of 17 Associates graduated in spring 2023, and a new group of 42 Associates will follow, including employees from over 20 local offices.

ECIT Talent is a program for employees who have worked in ECIT for some years, and the first group graduated by the end of 2022.

ECIT Leadership is a program designed for our managers that began in 2023. The program consists of four courses held over six months.

Gender Equality

In 2022, the gender composition at ECIT consisted of 59% (59%) women and 41% (41%) men among the total of 2,371 employees. In managerial positions, women accounted for 54% (50%) and men for 46% (50%).

EES score

In 2021, we initiated employee satisfaction monitoring through Employee Engagement Score (EES) surveys and achieved a score of 83. The survey was repeated in 2022, and we were pleased to observe that we maintained the same high level as in the previous year. Monitoring of EES will remain ongoing.

One of our values in ECIT is ‘open communication’. We openly present and discuss the results with our employees to find improvement areas and identify means of addressing them.
