Meaningful work in a professional atmosphere

Metsä Group is a close-knit group of enthusiastic professionals who play a key role in combating climate change. We will always have our sights set high and our feet firmly planted in Finnish forests.

What is Metsä Group like as a workplace?

We invest in good leadership and support for personal career development.

We coach our managers in listening and being present to individuals as well as providing feedback. These skills ensure they remain motivated and able to help their teams achieve the best possible results.

We know the value of our work, as well as its role in the strategy and in the changing world. The framework of our business offers us all meaningful work: environmentally efficient mills, products that replace fossil-based materials and ensuring sustainable growth of forests and biodiversity – the impact of which will be carried far into the future.

Metsä’s responsible culture creates a safe environment for all.

Team spirit speaks of a well-functioning organization

We annually survey the functioning of our workplace community and the satisfaction of our personnel. We encourage everyone at Metsä Group to engage in active dialogue to develop our organisation and cooperation.

We believe that every professional is the best expert for their job and duties, and we value their competence and opinions. We can achieve renewal together; encourage each other, develop in our own roles, take on interesting challenges and look at things from new perspectives. 

Most of us mention great co-workers and a good team spirit as the most important criteria for thriving at work. The sense of togetherness will not emerge on its own or by force, but each of us can contribute to it. A culture of open feedback and the support of supervisors help build trust. We also believe that consistent operations and a clear focus make Metsä a great place to work.

Careers at Metsä Group have traditionally been long and diverse. In production roles, we emphasise multiple skill sets and job rotation, which brings variation and new teams into one’s career. In business operations and group services, we encourage our personnel to choose the job rotation and professional development options.

All our employees can also enjoy diverse education opportunities both within and outside the company.

Ethical and equal operations

As an employer, we are guided by several policies, which we expect all of our employees to study and follow. Our policies deal with topics such as ethical operations, equality, wellbeing at work, safety and environmental questions.

Metsä Group promotes equality with the help of concrete targets and measures, focusing particularly on improving gender equality. Examples include our efforts to raise the share of women in executive positions and ensure gender pay equality. Metsä’s equality training programme covering the entire personnel is also part of our equality efforts. Personal characteristics such as age, ethnic background, sexual orientation or disability do not affect a person’s chance to progress in their career and to function as an equal member of the workplace community at Metsä Group.

Metsä Group has competitive salaries and an encouraging remuneration system that supports our strategy implementation and motivates us to reach our goals. We also offer our personnel comprehensive occupational health care and numerous fringe benefits.

100% responsible corporate culture is one of our 2030 objectives– an ethics barometer is conducted every second year.
