Remuneration model

Qt Group’s remuneration model may include fixed and variable remuneration components, such as:

  • monthly salary and fringe benefits, such as a mobile phone, car, meals and housing (fixed component),
  • short-term incentive schemes (variable component), and
  • long-term incentive schemes (variable component).

Short-term incentive schemes

Short-term incentive schemes have an earning period of maximum one year, and the associated reward is paid in cash.

Short-term incentive schemes include no personal or department-specific reward criteria for the CEO or the Management Team; instead, these criteria are directly linked to company-level targets.

To promote cooperation within the Company’s senior management and align senior managers’ interests with the company’s long-term and short-term goals, the reward criteria for all senior managers are identical.

The company endeavors to ensure that short-term incentive schemes cover a substantial share of the company’s personnel. Unlike the incentive schemes applicable to Company management, the incentive schemes applicable to other personnel may include reward criteria associated with personal, team-specific or department-specific performance. Especially in sales, incentives are based on an individual’s performance in comparison with their personal sales targets.

Long-term incentive schemes

The purpose of any long-term incentive schemes employed by the Company is to motivate, engage and reward the CEO, the rest of the Management Team and, if applicable, other key Company personnel. Long-term incentive schemes have a minimum earning period of three years, and the associated rewards are paid in shares or options. A portion of such rewards may also be paid in cash, for example, to account for the tax effects associated with the reward.
