Equal opportunities

Our workplace community offers equal opportunities for all employees. Taking diversity into account is also important to us. We treat all our employees fairly and equally, regardless of their age, gender, religious beliefs, opinions, nationality or similar factors. We also strive to ensure equality and equal treatment in our value chain.

In 2023, 61% of Olvi Group’s employees were men, and 39% were women. The average age of the Group’s employees was 41, and the largest age group was 30–49.

In 2023, 60% of the members of Olvi plc’s Board of Directors were men and 40% were women as the size of the Board decreased. Of the members of country-specific boards and management teams, 58% were men and 42% were women. In comparison with 2022, the proportion of women in companies’ Management Groups subsidiaries’ Boards has increased due to new positions and recruitment.

Fair and equal treatment is reflected in recruitment, salaries and career development opportunities, for example. Recruitment is always based on an identified need for resources and the competence and qualification requirements related to the job, and it supports the achievement of business objectives. We are currently not applying any targets as to base our recruitment on any specific property of the candidate, such as gender; instead, we focus on competences and capabilities.
