Perceived problems and one’s own opinions are presented without hesitation. Responsibility is assumed for implemented solutions. Errors and mistakes are fixed. 


Co-operation within STUK is based on collegiality, inclusion and mutual respect. Stakeholders are included in the preparation of matters.
