Fair pay
Fair pay

One concrete action in 2022 has been a global fair pay analysis to review pay practices in all of our 50+ operating countries. The analysis confirmed that our existing policies and practices provide a solid foundation, and typically the salary of our employees develops in an unbiased manner during their career in Metso Outotec. However, also individual cases were identified where unexplained gender-related pay gaps exist. 

In 2022, Metso Outotec made a one-time investment of EUR 2.2 million to correct the identified individual, unexplained gender-related pay gaps. These exceptional increases were made to some 500 employees in around 20 countries.

Building an inclusive culture is a priority at Metso Outotec and acting on the gender-related pay gap findings was only one concrete action for 2022.

Psychological safety

One key action in the diversity and inclusion journey we are on, is to continue building psychological safety in our teams. The role of psychological safety really can’t be emphasized enough. A safe environment where everyone is able to speak up and ask for help without the fear of negative consequences is a pre-requisite for high performance and mental well-being.
