We offer competitive remuneration and employee benefits, including medical benefits, retirement schemes, and bonuses. The Group provides recreational facilities such as holiday homes and leisure boats.
Our new parental leave policy came into effect in 2021. It provides 14 weeks’ leave for the primary caregiver and four weeks’ leave for the secondary caregiver.
Remuneration decisions are based on roles and responsibilities, individual and business performance, and conditions in the employment markets and economies in which we operate. We try to recruit locally, searching locally before searching internationally. Normally, vacancies are open first to our own people, then locally and finally internationally.
In 2021, our new hire rate was 24% and the average staff tenure was 7.9 years. Staff turnover is monitored with a view to identifying and managing problems as they arise, and to retaining talent. The voluntary turnover rate for permanent staff was 20% in 2021, up from 12.5% in 2020.
