Personnel Fund

Neste offers permanent and fixed-term employees based in Finland an entitlement to a profit share award through its personnel fund after six months of continuous service. The profit share earnings paid into the fund are distributed equally between  members. The employees who participate in LTI plans are not entitled to profit share awards during the earning period of the plan. The Board of Directors sets the earning criteria for the profit share award annually. The award is tied to Neste’s comparable operating profit. In 2017, the Company’s personnel fund contribution was EUR 4.4 million (EUR 5.7 million) based on the excellent comparable operating profit result achieved in 2016.
