Why work for S Group?

Every employee deserves good management

We have more than 40,000 employees. We are the largest private employer in Finland, with locations across the country, from Hanko in the south to Inari in the north.

Job satisfaction is important to us. Our strengths lie in management and performance in particular. We have Group-wide management promises: I dare, I appreciate and I do. The purpose of these promises is to ensure good supervisory work and management for everyone and further develop the Group’s management culture.

Johtamislupaukset ENG

Our employees work together for our customers. We reward good and profitable performance, and all our employees are covered by a performance-based pay system.

Our intention is to enable all employees to earn their primary income by working for the Group, if they so wish. Although the majority of employees still value full-time work, part-time work is particularly popular among people aged under 25, as well as employees nearing retirement. We offer opportunities for growth and development. We offer coaching for salespeople, experts, supervisors and managers through the Jollas Institute.

Finland’s widest range of employee benefits

We offer Finland’s widest range of employee benefits. In addition to Bonus benefits, our employees get a purchasing benefit at S Group’s more than 1,800 outlets. This purchasing benefit is 3–25%, depending on the cooperative and product. Employees may also receive other cooperative-specific benefits.

Shopping at one of our stores and dining at one of our restaurants is always cheaper for our employees.
