Human Resources

The average number of ROTO employees has increased in recent years. In 2018, ROTO had an average of 835 FTEs (2017: 811 FTEs). With the exception of the Business Unit Zinc recycling, the number of employees in each Business Unit rose in response to the increase in business activities. At the end of the financial year, the workforce consisted of 844 FTEs (2017: 822 FTEs). The increase in the number of employees was seen both in the Netherlands and in the other European countries where ROTO is active. If the nature and size of the activities remain unchanged, the number of employees will not rise or fall structurally in 2019 because the expected organic growth can be met using the current capacity.

Education

The management development process initiated in 2017 continued in 2018 and focused on the development of the management teams for the Business Units and the individual operating units. A distinction was made between sales activities and operating activities. After a joint kick-off, coaching was organised for each management team and there were opportunities for personal coaching at individual level. Encouraging training and development of employees will continue to be on the agenda in 2019, and e-learning application developed in 2018 for production staff will also be rolled out.

“Personal development is and remains important.
