During the year, the number of employees increased due to the continued organic growth and our acquisitions. Build for the future The “People” project within AAKtion is developing according to plan. This will result in improvements of workflows, processes, roles and responsibilities.   AAK continues to work with AAKtion to further strengthen its impact during the program’s third and final year.   The AAK Graduate Program continues to be successful. During the year the third batch of trainees completed their program and all of them continued in positions of increased responsibility.   This year another group of trainees has been welcomed on the graduate program. Most of them were recruited to commercial positions. Just like earlier years, the program will not only include formal training but also strengthen the trainees in their operational and commercial roles.
