Our people in numbers

In true Hakkapeliitta spirit, we are proud of what we do. In 2018, over 4,700 people worked at Nokian Tyres and our new hires rate was 15.7%.

At the end of the year 2018, we employed a total of 4,767 (+3%) own employees. 154 (3.2%) of those were on a long leave. Taking the part-time work into account, our FTEs (full-time equivalent) were 4.719 at the end of 2018.

The external workforce is mainly used for ad hoc workforce needs. At the end of 2018 we had 35 external workers, most of them working in Finland. During 2018, we employed a total of 936 seasonal employees in Vianor. 52.9% of our employees are covered by collective bargaining.

End-year headcount reporting is based for the first time on the data in our new global HR system Workday. Unlike previous years, we are now reporting the number of all employees including also those on a long leave of absence. Due to the change of system and more accurate absence reporting, our 2018 headcount numbers aren’t fully comparable with previous years’ numbers.
