People Responsibility

We employ around 20,300 professionals in 11 countries. Posti is one of the largest private employer in Finland. We are an equal, international, multicultural, and tolerant workplace community. 

Developing professional competence

The constantly changing business environment and the pursuit of new growth give rise to new competence requirements. Posti develops the competence of the personnel in new services and their ability to address the opportunities of digitalizing business. Needs are assessed in personal target and development discussions.

Skilled and motivated personnel are an essential starting point for Posti's success and good results. Professional development is supported by providing employees with opportunities for on-the-job learning, support for self-motivated study and access to a range of training courses. The digital transformation of the business environment calls for new know-how, the capacity to learn new things and the ability to quickly adapt to changing circumstances.

On the path toward an accident-free workplace

Posti’s goal is to provide healthy and safe work and a healthy and safe working environment for its employees. In promoting safety at work, Posti’s focus is on proactive measures. Accident prevention is a shared responsibility.

Mail is delivered on at least four days a week, regardless of the weather. The frequency of occupational accidents remains regrettably high. A total of 1,905 accidents were recorded in 2017 (2016: 1,845). These figures include occupational accidents at the workplace as well as commuting accidents which led to an absence.

Improving and promoting occupational safety are important development areas for Posti. This work is done consistently in three areas:

At Posti, we are committed to the following occupational safety principles:

  1. Safety comes first
  2. The responsibility for safety management belongs to Posti’s leadership and managers
  3. Safety starts with me
  4. Posti is committed to working together throughout the organization to develop our safety
  5. Workplace safety improvement at Posti is consistent and systematic

Multicultural employer

Multiculturalism is a significant resource for our company. In Finland alone, our employees represent 80 nationalities.

Since 2012, we have been a member of Diversity Charter Finland, which is coordinated by the corporate responsibility network FIBS. We were among the first companies in Finland to sign the charter.

Diversity Charter Finland offers its members information on best practices in the management of diversity and support in business development. The dimensions of diversity include age, sex, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, operational capability, and religion, among other aspects.

Driver's Challenge

Since 2014, all of our delivery vehicles in Finland have driving style monitoring devices. The driving habit monitoring devices help to reduce fuel consumption and drive down carbon-dioxide emissions. What’s more, it will be possible to set and monitor regional targets for both consumption and emissions.

We have won IPC's international Drivers’ Challenge in 2016 and 2015, when we hosted the competition in Ivalo. The driving habit index by the driving habit monitoring device played a decisive role in the selection of the Finnish competitors.
