The statutory negotiations on the matter, launched in HKScan's Group operations at the beginning of November, have been concluded. As a result of the negotiations, six positions in the Group functions in Finland were terminated and three positions were transferred to HKScan’s Business Unit Finland. 

In total, the negotiations concerned approximately 40 persons in the HKScan’s Group functions in Finland. The statutory negotiations did not concern the employees of HKScan Finland Oy and its subsidiaries or HKScan’s business operations in Sweden, the Baltics, Denmark and Poland.

“We are working determinedly to improve the cost efficiency of our operations. With the change in our operating model and other efficiency actions, we aim to achieve total annual savings of approximately EUR 3 million, which we expect to be realised after the first quarter of 2023," says HKScan's interim CEO Juha Ruohola.
