During the year, the number of white-collar workers decreased by 369 people (-15%) and that of blue-collar workers by 409 people (-13%).
The number of personnel has decreased due to two personnel reduction negotiations in Finland and similar negotiations in other operating countries conducted in 2013 and 2014. The results of the negotiations conducted in 2013 are fully visible in the number of personnel. The personnel reductions related to the negotiations conducted in 2014 have, for the most part, been realised.
