As the organization grows, coordination needs also increase and the demands imposed on communications and leadership are raised. It is important to attract and retain competent employees. It is also important that employees have local roots. For this reason, the company employs young people who spend their summer break working in the residential areas where they live. A personal commitment to the local community like this brings continued development of the residential environment while also providing favourable social side effects.

All new employees must participate in SBB’s introductory programme, which includes information on career development and policies including the Code of Conduct and the Sustainability Policy.
