performance and objectives with their managers, and new performance objectives are set along with a plan for personal development.    To ensure that all employees are properly qualified for their job, extensive training takes place, either locally or as part of our global training programs.   In 2015, we continued to focus our attention on training our commercial organization. We continued our global sales training program for new commercial employees, and further, we strengthened our training of our Customer Innovation Managers. All this is aimed at helping our teams improve their ability to identify customer opportunities and co-develop together with our customers. Communication A strong dedication to internal communication is vital to ensure engaged and committed employees who understand the company objectives as well as their link to the employees’ own personal objectives. Besides each manager’s vital communication role, town hall meetings, articles on our global intranet, monthly management conference calls and communication packages are used to ensure that all AAK employees are well informed and understand how they can make the best contribution.
