Kesko Corporation and its Finnish division parent companies and subsidiaries have company-specific equality plans including objectives for improvement based on national legislation.
The plans cover recruitment, career development and training, compensation, and work-family reconciliation.
In addition to gender equality, the plans also guide other aspects of equality, such as the treatment of people in different age groups or with different cultural backgrounds.
The employees’ experiences of equality with respect to age, ethnic origin and gender have been monitored as part of the personnel survey. In these areas, employees' experiences of equality are good.
More detailed information about the issue (for example on the gender breakdown in different positions) is provided in Kesko's Corporate Responsibility Report »
