Annual total compensation ratio

 

Competitive salaries and additional benefits not only increase our attractiveness as an employer; they also motivate our people and build loyalty to the company. The compensation we offer is based on market analyses in the relevant field and the value of the respective position, as well as the employee's skill set and performance. Our Global Rewards Policy defines the framework for compensation and benefits across the entire Group. As far as possible, we strive to offer all our employees comparable compensation structures. Furthermore, we monitor Compliance with minimum standards. We do not consider the information required under GRI 102-38 and GRI 102-39 to be relevant to assessing the fairness of our compensation structures.
