Personnel

At the end of 2015, Lemminkäinen employed 4,059 people (4,748), a decrease of 689 people year-on-year. The number of personnel has decreased due to results of negotiations on personnel reductions and other similar measures in all operating countries in 2014, the divestments of the building construction business in Sweden and the road maintenance business in Norway as well as the adjustment of Lemminkäinen’s building construction operations in Russia. Of the personnel in the review period, 1,845 (2,070) were white-collar workers and 2,214 (2,678) were blue-collar workers.
