Our compensation programs are designed to recognize and reward employees for their accomplishments and the value that they bring to the Group. The Group is committed to providing competitive remuneration programs that are designed to help attract, retain and motivate the key talent that we need in order to succeed in all aspects of our business.
The remuneration policy for our staff is determined by the Business Collective Labour Agreement. The remuneration and benefits for Executive Level employees are determined by a Remuneration System, which is directly linked to the assessment of their positions, their individual performance and the achievement of goals.
At the same time, we apply a benefits policy that essentially supports our employees and their families through which we offer them help, security and peace of mind. While these benefits vary by company and by country, all employees are provided with medical insurance, full or partial disability insurance, pension plans, as well as benefits for employees’ children, such as nursery expenses, educational aid for outstanding students, etc.
