HOK-Elanto has been awarded the Key Flag symbol by the Association for Finnish Work on the grounds of highly diversified ownership and high rate of domestic products.
Vith its more than 600,000 customer-owners HOK-Elanto has the broadest base of ownership of all companies in Finland. The co-op members actually own the society and are its customers at the same time.
About 80 per cent of HOK-Elanto's net sales originated from products manufactured in Finland.
The Key Flag also proclaims HOK-Elanto's role as a responsible company, being one the biggest employers in its area of operation. The company employs over 5,500 professionals in the service industry in about 300 localities.
Multi-culturalism is also part of HOK-Elanto's daily life. Educating and employing immigrants advances their integration into Finnish society. The Uusimaa Employment and Economic Development Office (TE Office) has granted HOK-Elanto with the Kotomaa-Uusimaa award for long-term integration work.
