Remuneration philosophy for the leadership team

Posti Group Corporation’s Leadership Team assists the CEO in business management and development, and coordinates Group management. In addition, it discusses and prepares matters for the Board of Directors. Key issues discussed by the Leadership Team include the Group strategy and annual business plans, financial and sales planning and monitoring, acquisitions, and other business-related investments.

The Leadership Team is not a formal decision-making body: the issues it discusses and the ensuing recommendations are submitted to Posti Group Corporation’s Board of Directors or executed under the authorization of the CEO.

Our remuneration philosophy aims to ensure that the remuneration practices are aligned with and support the strategic agenda of the company and its target corporate culture. The remuneration philosophy supports the company in attracting, keeping and motivating the best possible individuals to deliver the targeted development and results of the Group.

The purpose of our reward programs is to create a clear link between business performance, individual performance and individual remuneration. The programs recognize and reward high performance which is delivered in line with company strategy, culture and values. The reward programs contribute to business success by ensuring that the remuneration of employees and senior leaders is market competitive, making it possible to attract and retain the best talent.

Posti endorses transparency, fairness and diversity in all reward programs and in order to support successful implementation of company strategy, it is essential to maintain balance between market competitiveness and total cost of remuneration.

Posti complies with state-ownership guidelines concerning the remuneration and pension benefits of executive management.
