1. We believe that good leadership is the cornerstone of employee engagement and performance excellence.
Every Caruna line manager is responsible for all people issues in their team and for managing the annual people processes. Leadership responsibility covers the development and wellbeing of individuals and the team, encouragement to engage in dialogue and give feedback, follow-up on progress, and responsiveness to poor performance or misconduct. Line managers are offered a range of opportunities for learning and individual growth, and the support of our HR team.
2. We observe fair, open and competitive remuneration practices at each level of the organisation.
Salaries are based on the Finnish law and collective agreements, which we apply as transparently as possible. The salary level reflects the individual performance and competence, and the requirements of the position. High performance is rewarded accordingly through our bonus scheme. Bonuses are based on clear and measurable targets that are aligned with the company strategy. The targets are agreed mutually in performance and development discussions, which enable all Caruna employees to influence their rewarding.
3. We support Caruna employees’ career and development opportunities.
Our purpose is to promote an innovative work environment where employees develop on the job. We encourage employee responsibility and initiative taking. We also expect employees to take advantage of the learning opportunities available, including job rotation. The line manager plays an important role in employee career development.
4. Resourcing at Caruna is based on long-term planning.
This enables us to offer our employees new career and development opportunities. Positions are always opened internally, and we encourage internal applications from Caruna employees. Recruitment is conducted in a professional manner, and we treat all applicants with respect. Selection is based on thorough evaluation of individual competence and motivation. Caruna has defined the general competences and leadership principles, which together with Caruna values form the basis for all candidate evaluation.
5. We provide a safe and healthy working environment.
We respect an employee’s right to balance private and professional life. We make use of the opportunities for remote working as well as flexible working hours wherever possible. We provide occupational health and wellbeing services to all our employees and support rehabilitation. We do not allow the use of any intoxicants at work.
6. We respect the freedom of association and the right to negotiate collective agreements.
The free flow of information, good co-operation and confidential relationships between the management and the personnel form an important basis for successful management of the business. The starting point for good co-operation at all levels is to resolve any internal conflicts quickly and constructively.
7. We are an equal rights employer.
No discrimination of any kind is allowed. All types of harassment are prohibited and will be eliminated immediately. Caruna considers diversity a competitive advantage, which benefits the entire working community. A person’s background must not influence pay, development and promotion or recruitment.
8. Caruna’s HR policy guides our day-to-day operations.
We follow up the implementation of agreed practices regularly through employee engagement surveys, the annual performance and development discussions as well as other feedback channels. We regularly monitor employee indicators.
