Metso Outotec acts upon unexplained gender-related pay gaps during 2022

Metso Outotec Corporation’s press release on March 8, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. EET

Metso Outotec is committed to developing the company into a workplace where diversity and inclusion is embedded into the culture, and it is fostered and promoted. One concrete action is to ensure global fair pay practices. For this, Metso Outotec initiated a global fair pay analysis in 2021 with a technical data analysis, followed by a thorough review of the findings. The analysis is still partly ongoing. The study has been conducted together with an external partner who has extensive expertise in the field.

In our global fair pay analysis, we investigated various aspects related to pay. The initial findings indicate that our employees’ salary development is typically unbiased during their Metso Outotec careers. However, the analysis has also identified cases, where unexplained gender-related pay gaps exist.

“Sustainability is at the core of Metso Outotec, which also covers the well-being and fair treatment of our employees​. We have placed Diversity and Inclusion high on our agenda and will be taking corrective actions by addressing the unexplained gender-related pay gaps, that have been identified, by the end of 2022,” says Pekka Vauramo, President and CEO, Metso Outotec.
