Internal recruitment produces excellent career paths
Approximately one quarter of Kojamo’s job vacancies are filled by using internal recruitment. Internal recruitment provides employees with excellent development opportunities and a way to learn the business from many different angles.
Lumo is there when athletes need support the most
We promote our role as a social operator by sponsoring top-level Finnish sports and youth sports on the individual and team levels. The Lumo sponsorship and grant programme launched in 2012 is part of Kojamo’s sustainability programme and a visible part of the Lumo brand.
A well-managed balance sheet protects us from changes in market conditions
A strong and well-managed balance sheet is a vital aspect of the implementation of our strategy. It has also protected us from the financial market uncertainties that emerged during the year. Our consistent and long-term approach to managing our balance sheet is reflected in our ability to ensure our operating conditions even in a volatile market situation.
Demolition and recycling at the Puotila shopping centre
The demolition of the old Puotila shopping centre was Kojamo’s first demolition project in accordance with the Green Deal commitment. Most of the property’s waste was recycled and all possible movables were recovered. The material recovery target was exceeded, with the recovery rate of non-hazardous material being as high as 86 per cent.
Saana became a Lumo resident: “I think I’ll be happy to live here for a long time, maybe even my whole life”
The three trends in housing – a sense of community, sustainability and convenience in daily life – are some of the main reasons why people choose rental housing. Rental housing is no longer just a mandatory or intermediate step on the path to owner-occupied housing. It's a conscious lifestyle choice.
