Employee and sustainability data

Accell Group reports its non-financial data, such as employee and sustainability information, for the period 1 December 2019 through 30 November 2020. On the reference date of 30 November 2020, we had 2,624 employees (FTEs). This figure differs somewhat from the average number of FTEs in 2020, partly because we work with a fixed reference date and partly because not all companies are included in the data collection related to corporate social responsibility for 2020. On the reference date, 52% of our employees were covered by a collective labour agreement. From this year on Accell Group activities by Velosophy are included in the figures.
