Over 22 000 highly qualified professionals are work at HUS hospitals. Work in specialized medical care calls not only for good qualifications but also for staff to keep abreast continuously of their own field and undergo further training. As an employer, HUS encourages its personnel to apply for training and to supplement their knowledge continuously. The professional advancement of the biggest personnel group, nursing staff, is supported by career models created at HUS.
HUS is an inspiring and supportive work community. A barometer of working conditions has been developed to gauge the well-being of personnel. Conducted every year at the level of the entire organisation, the survey yields a lot of information used as the basis for developing the operation. The work units can also use the meters as the tool for smaller-scale work ambience surveys. Superiors engage annually in performance reviews with their subordinates.
