Neste Oil’s Personnel Fund was established in spring 2005 and covers the Group’s personnel in Finland. Those participating in the Group’s share-based incentive program cannot be members. The Board of Directors determines the criteria for the profit-sharing bonus paid into the Fund annually.
Personnel employed under both permanent and fixed-term employment contracts are members of the Personnel Fund. Membership begins after an uninterrupted period of six months of employment and ends once a member has received his or her share of the Fund in full.
The profit-sharing bonuses paid into the Fund are distributed equally between members. Each employee’s share is divided into a tied amount and an amount available for withdrawal. When an employee has been a member of the Fund for five years, he or she can transfer an amount equivalent to no more than 15% of the capital from the tied amount for withdrawal. The amount available for withdrawal will be determined annually and paid to members who wish to exercise their withdrawal rights. Members can choose whether they want to receive the amount available for withdrawal in cash or in Neste Oil shares acquired through the Personnel Fund.
|In 2011, the profit-sharing earnings paid into Neste Oil’s Personnel Fund for 2010 totaled EUR 674,541.|
