Expertise development is based on the development requirements covered in the performance appraisals. These requirements are used to create the company’s annual training program. The forms of expertise development include contact teaching, on-the-job training as well as online learning which is becoming increasingly popular.

We promote occupational well-being by developing our work, working conditions and expertise, for instance. Occupational health care and work safety also play a significant role. We encourage our employees to exercise by offering financial assistance via a sports pass and by sponsoring our employees’ participation in sporting events. Oral’s employees participated in various sporting events around Finland this year as well.
We believe that a good workplace has an open atmosphere based on trust. Everyone values their community and feels like they belong there. No one is harassed and everyone can feel safe. Everyone is also aware of the common goals and the significance of their work in meeting these goals. A good workplace has continuous and open communication.
