Twenty-two per cent of employees had completed secondary education with no further qualifications, and 10 per cent had no vocational qualifications. The company's incentive system covers all permanent employees.

In 2013, 12 new employees were hired, seven of them on fixed-term contracts. During the year, eleven employees left the company. three resigned and the fixed-term contracts of eight employees ended.

Most employees took part in a competence evaluation during 2013. The evaluation demonstrated a good level of the specific competence that is critical for the fulfilment of the strategy. However, competence related to electronic tendering and responsibility is a challenge at most levels. The company will develop its internal training system based on these outcomes. A 360-degree leadership evaluation was conducted at Hansel in 2013. Future management training sessions will focus on the identified company-wide areas of development in leadership.

Hansel adheres to the guidelines on management and key employee rewards and incentives issued by the Cabinet Committee on Economic Policy. At the beginning of 2013, the incentive system was revised to comply with the statement of the Cabinet Committee on Economic Policy issued on 13 August 2012.
