Decision-making regarding remuneration
YIT Corporation’s Annual General Meeting decides on the fees for the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors decides on the salary and fees and other terms of employment of the CEO and other key Group employees, such as the members of the Group’s Management Team. In addition, the Board of Directors decides annually both short and long-term indicators for management remuneration and the target values for the indicators which are designed to support the achievement of the strategic goals. On the basis of the President and CEO’s proposal, the Board of Directors also decides on the amount of fees and whether the indicator-based goals have been reached.
The task of the Personnel Committee is to assist the Board in matters related to appointing and rewarding key personnel. Among other things, the Personnel Committee prepares proposals for the development of the Group's corporate culture and HR policy, remuneration and incentive schemes, the rules for performance-based bonuses and the proposals for performance-based bonuses paid to the management. In addition, identifying talents, the development of key personnel and planning for management successors fall under the preparation responsibility of the Committee.
